It’s Nice to Be Appreciated!

by Heather Falconer

As a free resource for educators, students, and the general public, we spend a lot of time thinking of the best ways to get you the information you need. In the last year or so, we’ve turned our attention to better using new media, like this blog and the creation of apps. It’s been exciting to see how many of you have downloaded our Visionlearning glossary app, which keeps the resource always at your fingertips. Now, we’re even getting some accolades!

This last week, our glossary app was listed as one of the top 25 apps for engineers. Scientia Blogger has found that our app is a fabulous reference tool, up there with NASA, Popular Science, and Unit Converter Pro. We thank them for their recognition. You can download our app for free from iTunes.

On a side note, Visionlearning is considering creating another app. This one would take all of the old and new quiz items associated with our modules and make them available for i-devices. we’d love to hear from you as to whether you’d find something like this useful. Drop us a line at to share your ideas.
