In this day and age, the ability to use IT effectively is vital, both as an aid to study and in preparation for future employment. The college supports this requirement by offering students industry standard hardware and software applications.
The Learning Centre has excellent IT facilities including PCs, Apple Macs, printers, a high quality scanner and photo-copying facilities. There is also a campus wide wireless network whereby students can connect their own laptops and mobile devices. There are also computers available in many specialist classrooms throughout the College. All computers have Internet access and printing facilities.
All students have their own email account which can be used at college and at home via the Student Portal or www.outlook.com. In addition, students have 20GB of storage space for their college work and assignments on a Skydrive, which can be accessed through their Outlook.com login.
Over 40 classrooms have interactive whiteboards which can help make classroom activities interesting and exciting. Many courses have their own web based virtual learning environment Moodle, where students can communicate and collaborate with their teacher and other students, and can access their learning materials at anytime and anywhere.
