Users can take Versal courses directly on iOS and Android devices.
Versal is launching its new mobile player, which enables students to take interactive Versal courses via iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
In the corporate environment, employees can learn something new while commuting to work or while staffing a remote office that doesn’t have broad computer access (for example, in a retail environment).
In schools, the effect is even more profound. Too many campuses still lack dedicated computers for each class, and teachers can’t always count on a student to have a computer at home. But when we talk to teachers, one consistent theme we hear is this: most students have smartphones and/or tablets, and this “app generation” responds very well to interactive online learning experiences.

While the new mobile player is not an app per se, it is optimized for mobile screens and mirrors the desktop experience. The table of contents for a course is minimized under an icon to focus on the learning content. Interactive gadgets also now work on mobile devices, offering learners a far richer learning experience beyond videos and PDFs.
Ultimately, our vision is to offer teachers and corporate educators the best way to create engaging and effective learning experiences. Mobile learning support adds another key piece to the puzzle. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback, and any other ideas for features that would make Versal even better.
