Bring Your Own Technology

Mount Alvernia College

All students are expected to attend College with a laptop as their primary technology device.

Currently the College uses Datacom to provide parents with easy access to laptops, which are tested to work on the College network. Parents may source their daughter’s laptop from any retailer; however, the College does not guarantee connection to any device that does not meet the minimum specifications set out below.

The presentation below from Datacom describes the advantages of purchasing through it rather than retail stores.

The BYOT section of Moodle provides students with access to software and general instructions.
