Select the webtext you want to enter, and you’ll land on the last page you visited.

Answer questions

You’ll find almost all the same content here that’s in the web version, like multiple-choice questions, which can be reset by clicking the button at the bottom of the page.

Your webtext may have response boards or short-answer questions. Type your answer, then click Post.

If you want to change your answer, click Unpost & Edit.

Work offline

The app can be used online or offline, but some features may be reserved for online use only. You’ll see a message letting you know if that’s the case. You may also see an indication that certain questions may only be answered while your device is online.

Make sure to go online every now and then so your work syncs and you can receive credit for completing it. Don’t delete the app without syncing first or you’ll lose the work you completed while offline.

Navigate the webtext

Use the arrows at the bottom of the screen to navigate from one page to another.
