IT Resources and Services
Northern College requires all full time students to have their own laptop computer. Course materials are posted online and many courses use online tests, or require students to submit assignments online through the College’s Learning Management System.

The College’s “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) program is mandatory for all first and second year students. BYOD is about flexible learning in the classroom that provides access to the tools and resources previously unavailable to all students. Whether engaging in virtual e-classroom sessions, or doing on-the-fly research in a lecture. For more information, please refer to IT Resources and Services.
