Throughout 2014 Istation will be transferring hundreds of instructional hours to apps and Web-based formats for multiple mobile computing devices. After the launch of Istation's app on the iPad at the start of the 2014 school year, Chromebook access will follow in early 2015.

Students will be able to learn at their own pace as they interact with Istation's cast of animated characters as well as swipe and touch their way through hundreds of instructional hours and activities on the iPad.
