Imagine Language & Literacy

Student app

Enhanced performance

The Imagine Language & Literacy app is redesigned to run faster, resulting in reduced network traffic and load times. The size of the app is significantly smaller than the Imagine Learning legacy app.

Language and Literacy icon


The Imagine Language & Literacy web app is currently available only in Chrome. However; we are actively working to provide support for Edge, Firefox, and Safari during the 2017-18 school year.

The new app is also available to download to Chromebooks from the Chrome Web Store, and to iPads from the App Store.

Loads faster

Media files for the new app are now smaller so that network traffic and load times are greatly reduced. Videos load faster because of adaptive streaming technology. This ensures you can start watching a video before it’s completely downloaded.

App size

We've significantly reduced the app size. The new app is now 30 percent smaller than the Imagine Learning legacy app.

Firewall access

Host name



The new app utilizes native browser components. Windows, Mac, and Chromebook users don't need to install any plugins to run a student session in Chrome.

Student usage

Student usage for this app is reported in Imagine Learning Portal. The app records a "heartbeat" every minute to count usage. Pausing the app also pauses the heartbeat; paused session time is not counted.


Imagine Language & Literacy can't connect to on-premise servers; organizations with on-premise servers may only use the Imagine Learning legacy app. The Activity Menu is currently available only in the Imagine Learning legacy app, and Clever SSO, while available with the Imagine Language & Literacy Chrome app, has not yet been implemented in the Imagine Language & Literacy iOS app.
