iLrn Instructor Testimonial: Jennifer Rogers

Hear how Jennifer Rogers of Metropolitan Community College uses iLrn to reduce student anxiety around learning a foreign language.

“iLrn fosters independence. It has enabled me to meet the demand for additional online sections, without getting bogged down in email.”

“I don’t think I would teach this class without iLrn.”

“iLrn compels students to engage with the work, which is what I want to see with online student so they aren’t just staring at the screen. iLrn made me realize how important a good online language learning system is to teaching effectively online.”

“An important benefit is my students can get instant feedback [from iLrn assignments]. They know right away if they got something wrong instead of waiting for a lag time.”

“My favorite thing is all of the activities. I love the gap activities, the students LOVE the charades, and there is a huge variety of activities from which to choose. The students love it too. They can get deeper into concepts because they have a lot of different ways to learn them.”
