FAQ's - Restricted Access to School Premises and Continuity of Learning
Thanks to our online learning platform, Canvas, it has ensured that BIC, as well as all other schools impacted in the Orbital group, has been able to swiftly move from teaching in classrooms to online E-Learning, ensuring that your children experience a continuous education programme to meet their needs. Our sister school Britannica International School, Shanghai has been successfully using this process for the last two months, providing a solid base of learning and content that BIC can tap into.
Canvas is Orbital’s preferred and chosen online learning platform that supports your child’s learning and ensures that your child continues to receive a high quality education. Canvas is an excellent worldwide recognised learning management system that streamlines digital tools and content used by teachers and students, for a simpler and more connected digital learning experience.
Baleares International College has been using and preparing this online platform since some time, allowing efficient internal and external communication with the school community. Canvas has enabled BIC teachers to prepare a range of strategies and skills that will ensure a seamless use of online learning for our students during this time.
