PBB School Fees

  • What are Technology and Licensing fees for?

    We try very hard to keep our resources to open education resources that do not require third party providers and licensing. Our teachers provide the bulk of our course instructional materials, but in some cases we need to make use of licensed resources. Some of the items that fees are used for are Moodle hosting services and plug-ins for student tracking and completion, Blackboard licensing for live instruction, anti-plagiarism software, course content licensing, digital text books and ebooks, and online literacy and numeracy platforms.
