How CTL is Different Than Other Technology Companies


Find out what makes our company outstanding in every way.

From the moment you visit the CTL website until you’ve received your first product order from us, you’ll notice a distinct difference in the way that our company does things. We put the customer first. That statement applies to the products that we create and sell as well as the way we handle inquiries, questions, and concerns. Our interactions with you help educate and empower you to know all there is to know about CTL computers and CTL Chromebooks. That way, you have the most seamlessly smooth experience possible and your students benefit from your new and innovative way of presenting educational material.

CTL Products Encourage Exploration and Collaboration

Students make use of the tools that they’re provided in the classroom on a daily basis. That’s why it’s important to give the next generation of innovators a distinct advantage by investing in the best technologies available at the time. Doing so encourages exploration and collaboration. Students are able to be the best versions of themselves as pupils because they can see, listen to, and interact with the content that the teacher is presenting to them in ways that make sense to them.

A durable Chromebook or computer serves many purposes. It can be used to inform, persuade, entertain, inspire, and produce. The technologies streamline the most difficult tasks making it easier for educators to teach everything they have in their lesson plans for the year quickly. That means greater productivity and an easier way to measure results.

Knowing how well students are doing is another reason why CTL products are excellent choices for the classroom. Educators are able to track student progress with very little effort. At a glance, they’re able to see how much of a project has been completed online and how well a student is doing academically based on the grades they have received.

What Makes CTL’s Products Stand Out in a Crowd?

See for yourself what makes CTL the people’s choice for educational hardware. Our wide selection of products along with our guarantees is enough to make you want to equip your classroom with products strictly from our website.

They can withstand massive amounts of weight, handle having their screens turned and moved in different directions, and remain powered up and ready to go even after being used for hours. They’re portable, durable, and highly effective tools that transform classrooms around the globe.

If you have any questions about our products or policies, please let us know. We want to change the way you teach and the way your students learn. We’ve won awards for excellence because our products go beyond what was expected by the people who use them regularly.
