6 Ways iView Learning Can Support You Through University
IView Learning is here to support you through your educational journey. With an iView Learning subscription, you will have access to tutorials on how to utilise assistive technology software and equipment for study. You will also be able to develop strategic goals to support you to achieve optimum wellbeing and keep everything in one place in your iView Education Account.
1. Interactive Tutorials
We know that not everyone has the same learning style. The four core learning styles include visual, auditory, reading and writing, and kinesthetic. For kinesthetic learners, being able to practice the tutorials rather than just watching a video is often very useful. That is why iView Learning offers software and assistive technology tutorials in interactive, pdf and video formats. These will help you navigate your technology efficiently and allow for a greater university learning experience.
2. Effective tutorials
Keeping the four core learning styles in mind, and as we know that some disabilities make it difficult to concentrate for a long period of time, we have created short video tutorials. To effectively and concisely get the assistive technology and software guidance straight to you, iView tutorial videos are all 90 seconds or less in length. This will reduce the time you spend learning how to use your technology, allowing for more time practically using it to help with your university work.
3. PDF guides
Here at iView, we know that some people learn best through reading. That is why all the information that we provide on the iView Platform in video and interactive tutorials, is also detailed in PDF format creating the perfect miniature reference guide. These are useful because they quickly get you all the information you need to effectively use the assistive technology to enhance your learning experience in a timely manner.
4. Live chat
If you are ever struggling with software, or need practical help, iView offers live chat services to provide immediate guidance. Talk in real-time with one of our in-house AT Trainers, get answers to your questions immediately. Chat is a live chat function monitored by trained support practitioners, guiding users to helpful resources when they are feeling stuck. iView Chat is available by through your iView Learning subscription.

6. Mindfulness for Study
iView have collaborated with friends from Loughborough University to create fantastic interactive mindfulness tutorials. The videos are there to assist anyone with Mental Health and Anxiety, along with great advice for anyone on the Autistic spectrum, or if you are just finding life a little harder during these difficult times. Each video accompanies a different chapter of our Mindfulness for Study e-book, carefully guiding you through the book with interactive elements, activities, and quizzes. Pause the videos at any point and simply pick up where you left off when you’re ready, utilising your hard copy to write notes and highlight key points that you find useful.
