Developed for learning on-the-go

Because learning never stops, we’ve developed programs with mobile devices in mind.

What does iPad®-friendly mean?

We've worked to make sure the following resources are accessible:

  • Streaming video (tap on the black screen to start)
  • Audio
  • Most practice activities (see exclusions below*)
  • Presentational readings (literary and cultural selections and spoken grammar presentations)
  • Online textbooks (vTexts, eCompanions)Grammar tutorials
  • Flashcards

*What are the limitations?

Apple mobile devices that use iOS (such as the iPad®) have limited functionality for web browsers and do not all use of microphone and camera features. Our sites must be viewed on a web browser when using an iPad. We recommend students use a computer or laptop to access and complete activities listed:

  • Record-compare activities (including Speech Recognition if available for your program)
  • Partner Chat activities
  • Virtual Chat activities
  • Forums

Flash- and Shockwave-based items cannot be viewed on an iPad®. This impacts the following:

  • Talking pictures
  • Games
  • Online mini dictionary
