Online Learning

An evolving digital education forms a critical skills set boys will use across the different areas of their lives. At Maritzburg College, we provide our learners with a comprehensive range of digital resources to encourage independent learning and enhance the scope of the curriculum.

Information, Communication and Technology

Digital proficiency equips boys for the changing way we live and work in modern society. Maritzburg College realises the value of information, communication and technology in our school and community.

Technology is infused into every area of the academic curriculum, cultural activities and sporting environment. Digital tools have the potential to deeply enrich learning and bolster efficiency. Maritzburg College embraces and encourages the use of technology as an integral part of our everyday reality – with technology infused throughout boys’ school years. This develops analytical skills, encourages collaboration, and endorses a sense of global citizenship.

Online Video Classes for Boys

Boys can learn at their own pace – and grow their knowledge base beyond the classroom – through our comprehensive video learning tools. Our YouTube channel empowers boys to learn at home, in their dorms, or anywhere. This gives them an online connection to the school at all times and serves to augment the syllabus.

Through our Moodle, boys get online access to a full complement of learning tools – creating digital opportunities for extended learning.

Video is an engaging and effective way to learn. Our YouTube channel features academic video lessons, sporting highlights, and marketing information.

College has three computer labs with the latest software. Additionally, all boys have access to printing and Office 365 programs to assist with daily school tasks.

In-House Tech Support

Boys have access to College’s Senior and Junior Network Administrators, IT Development Assistant, and the members of the TechSquad to keep them up and running.

Digital Learning in the Classroom
