We offer course materials in various file types such as PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel and various image and video files. If you follow the purchasing advice above, this will not cause any problems for your educational process.
You may of course use other devices also on our network such as tablets, iPads, netbooks, phones, Macbook, etc. These often do not have a Windows operating system but iOS or Android. As we as a school cannot support all types of devices, it is your own responsibility to be able to open, edit (e.g. make a report in Word), play and submit the learning material.
The use of Chromebooks is strongly discouraged in this regard as the experience is that students cannot open, edit (e.g. make a report in Word), play and submit files.
