Setting Up a Device for Remote Learning

This guide will help you set up a device for your child's remote learning if you are:

  • Completing soft quarantine transition (SQT) 
  • Continuing remote learning after returning the school iPad.

Students use an iPad for learning in the elementary school at WAB. If you don't have a personal iPad, you can access the core apps for remote learning on any device (phone, tablet or computer) using a web browser.

If you need any assistance, please contact our IT helpdesk via WeChat or email (

Connect to Wifi

The first thing you should do with any device is to connect it to the Wi-Fi network you are using. Depending on your situation, you could be using:

  • Home or hotel wifi
  • 4G/5G mobile data using mobile phone hot spot

Connecting to wifi is similar on most devices and is required for all our core remote learning applications.
