Cloud-based HTML5 Office Simulations in MyLab IT provide an authentic learning experience with realistic skill-based training and assessment.
As you work through the simulations, Learning Aids — such as Read Instructions, Watch Video, or Practice — are integrated directly into the activity for easy access when you need help.
The new MyLab IT Virtual Keyboard is designed to ensure that every student is able to complete the simulation activity. This keyboard allows users with non-PC hardware, such as a Mac computer, to enjoy the same user experience.
Additionally, MyLab IT has an embedded screen reader that offers increased accessibility for students with disabilities. The simulation text and screen reader can also be translated into five different languages.
