The students of a British softwaricam college will be able to use their laptops to study in their own living quarters and on the internet.
Softwaricams students will be given virtual classrooms to study on and can access lectures via their smartphones or tablets.
BBC News UK says that the courses are being introduced as part of a new programme to help the university prepare its students for university and careers.
The programme, called Softwaracademy, is being run by the university’s teaching and learning department.
Students will have the opportunity to study with their peers, and the BBC News website reports that they will be expected to make use of a range of social networking features to help them with the task.
The BBC says that these will include chat rooms, forums and online discussion groups.
BBC World News said that the students will get access to their own laptop and laptops will be used to study via their own network.
They will also be able upload videos and videos will be available for viewing via their devices.
BBC Education said that this will help prepare students for their university studies.
The Department of Education and Skills said: “The Department is committed to teaching young people the skills and knowledge that will help them succeed in life, career and education.”
We are excited to be introducing these new opportunities to our young people.
“It is a fantastic way to engage students and get them to work together to make a positive difference.”
Softwaria students have the option of taking courses in the UK, Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
There are currently no plans to offer softwarist courses in other countries, BBC News says.
