At Oxley College we use an online learning system to help support our students. The system is called Canvas and students can access this using their normal school login here. All students in Years 5 to 12 use Canvas. There is also a mobile app that students can use, both for iOS and Android.
Parents can also follow their child’s progress by creating a parent account by going to the normal login and following these instructions. For access to more than one child follow the Add Another Student instructions.
Using a platform like Canvas is key for students to be prepared for how university and other courses are run today and will be in the future. Teachers will be posting assessment information and course material through this platform, which will help students find information if they miss something in class and also help promote independent study habits in our students.
The provision of a laptop – either Apple or PC – will become our expectation for all Year 5 – 12 students as part of the Bring Your Own Designated Device (BYODD) programme. Our minimum requirements are detailed in the table below. All the information you require is located in the BYODD Information and Parent Support documents, which have detailed information about the hardware and software requirements.
Parents should also look over the Cyber-Safety Use Agreement included in the document to ensure they are informed of how to keep their child safe and aware online.
