Need to access content on the go? No problem ILX, the global Best Practice learning company, has launched the ‘ILX Player App’ to allow mobile access to a broad range of ILX’s e-Learning. The new App provides users with video content which actively supports online learning across all our ELearning portfolio.

How does the App work? Anybody can download the app for free, and those registered for ILX’s e-Learning courses will be able to access these courses via the App at no extra charge. The App provides a quick and easy access to downloadable video content on tablet or phone devices.

Course content is stored locally on the user device so once it’s downloaded someone can study anywhere without the need for an internet connection. This is ideal for those commuting or located in areas where internet reception may be poor. Users of the App can also switch between devices and pick up the video content where they last left the frame. Progress information and time spent on each session is also sent back to the main ILX portal so that your course progress can monitor and updated.
