Students will be issued a mobile device computer or an equivalent device. The College provides network and internet access to all students to be used in the course of their studies. To ensure the eMind mobile devices are used effectively students and their parents/guardians must abide by the eMind Student Mobile Device Contract and the College's ICT Code of Conduct. Students and their parents/guardians must sign the eMind Student Mobile Device Contract at the time of collecting their mobile devices. Where there is more than one parent/guardian, each will accept full responsibility under this agreement.

If any part of the eMind Student Mobile Device Contract is not adhered to by users, the College reserves the right to take appropriate action, which may include one or more of the following:

  • Termination of network access.
  • Removal of the mobile device.
  • Any other technical or disciplinary action deemed necessary.

Ownership and Control

Ownership and control of eMind student mobile devices will always remain with the College. Nothing in this agreement, or the delivery of the mobile device by the College, constitutes a transfer of ownership of the mobile device to the student, their parent(s) or guardian(s).

Obligations of the College

For its part the College undertakes to:

  • Issue each student with a mobile device.
  • Recall the mobile device for upgrading software, performance check and audits.
  • Provide a safe and secure network environment.
  • Provide repairs as required in keeping with the conditions outlined in the eMind Student Mobile Device Contract.
  • Determine a warranty repair from a malicious damage repair.
  • Provide an appropriate teaching and learning programme.
  • Enforce the Coomera Anglican College eMind Student Mobile Device Contract.

Obligations of Parents and Student

Students and their parent(s) and or guardian(s) are required to:

  • Maintain the mobile device in good working order and appearance.
  • Ensure the software loaded on the mobile device is licensed and does not breach copyright.
  • Parents/guardians are required to ensure that the mobile device is included in their household contents insurance as this will be the first point of call for a claim arising from total loss or theft. .
  • Advise the College and arrange appropriate supplementary insurance to cover the mobile device if it is to be taken out of Australia.
  • Ensure the mobile device is used for educational purposes only.
  • Read, accept and sign the eMind Student Mobile Device Contract.

Students and parents should not:

  • Copy, delete or transfer any software.
  • Remove or alter any identifying marks or labels (Tekskins, barcodes, serial numbers)
  • Add/change/remove the hardware as this will void the manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Use personal network connecting devices in order to bypass the College’s secure gateway or to create networks within the College. Any student who attempts to do this will face disciplinary action, which may include termination of network access and/or removal of the mobile device and any other disciplinary action deemed necessary.

Appearance / Personalisation

As the mobile devices are the property of the College, they are not to be altered or personalised in any way. Each mobile device will have its own Tekskin cover which will be personalised with the students name and number.

Students are advised to personalise the protective carry case using small figurines, small key rings or ribbons for easier identification.

The Tekskin cover on student mobile devices will appear as follows:

Mobile Device Storage while Going Overseas or on Holidays

The IT Department will offer a secure storage service during holidays or while a student and their family is travelling overseas, if required.

Travel Insurance Protection

If taking the mobile device away from home while on holidays, parents should ensure that appropriate travel insurance is in place to cover the replacement cost of the mobile device.

Replacement Mobile Devices

If travel insurance cover is not in place or does not apply, and a replacement mobile device has to be purchased, the parents/guardians will be responsible for the replacement cost of the same or a similar mobile device. The College will decide the model and configuration of the replacement mobile device.

Loan Mobile Devices

In order to maintain the continuity of the learning process, the College may provide a mobile device ‘on loan’. Where a ‘loan’ mobile device has been provided to the student the following applies:

  • The existing eMind Student Mobile Device Contract will remain in place.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all data is backed up.
  • The IT Department accepts no responsibility for the integrity of the data transferred.
  • When requested, the mobile device should be returned immediately to the IT Department.
  • The length of the loan period will be determined by the IT Department.
