The Imagine Learning Student app is currently available only in Chrome.

The new app is also available to download to Chromebooks from the Chrome Web Store, to iPads from the App Store, and to Android devices from Google Play and Amazon.

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 on most platforms. The new app is now 30 percent smaller than the Imagine Learning legacy app.

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.

You can install the Imagine Learning Student app on Chromebooks, iPads, and Android devices. To find download links for our native apps, go to Download apps, select Chrome, iPad, Android, or Kindle.
