Imagine Language & Literacy

Web 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 initial download is three times smaller than the Imagine Learning legacy app.


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 from the Chrome Web 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 7 MB—a substantial decrease from the 23 MB size of the legacy app.

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.
