Bring your Own Device (BYOD) at Northern 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, BYOD changes the way you can learn. By participating in a mobile learning program, students practice their technology and computing skills and develop a fluency with the tools that employers and industry seek!
