BYOD Bootcamp

Freshmen and Transfer Sophomores or Juniors for the 2017-2018 school year are required to take a four-hour session to get their device working with U of D Jesuit tools and learn foundational skills. It’s called a “boot” camp, like booting a computer, because it’s designed to give students a strong start using their device as an academic tool in the classroom.

The sessions will include content on:

  • Connecting to school WiFi and email.
  • Staying focused in class and protecting devices.
  • Using and collaborating with Google Apps.
  • Organizing with an online calendar and task list.
  • Using Moodle for classes.
  • Maintaining a healthy digital footprint.
  • Protecting identity.

To give students and their families flexibility, the sessions will be offered on six dates in July and August; students only need to attend a single session.
