learnON FAQs

Click on the question to expand and view the answer

  • What is learnON?

    learnON is a digital learning platform that delivers trusted Jacaranda resources in new and improved ways. learnON is just as easy to use as eBookPLUS, but it is a fully immersive digital learning platform for students.

  • What is the difference between eBookPLUS and learnON?

    eBookPLUS is an eBook platform that Jacaranda launched in 2008. It is the electronic version of the student textbook that also includes a range of additional digital resources such as videos, interactivities, links to relevant support material on the internet and downloadable documents, spreadsheets, presentation files and worksheets for easy customisation and editing. eBookPLUS is a one-way teaching and learning tool, meaning students aren’t connected to their teacher or class.

    learnON is an immersive platform from Jacaranda. It is a powerful learning platform that allows teachers to connect with their class and track their progress. Exciting features include access to everything in one place (including theory/reading content, media, questions, answers, solutions and more), embedded videos and interactivities, worked solutions and exemplary responses for every question, and interactive questions that provide students with instant feedback.

    learnON does not replace eBookPLUS. learnON is offered in addition to eBookPLUS, enabling you to teach your class your way.

  • Does learnON come with eGuidePLUS?

    No. With learnON, there is a single learnON title for both teachers and students— meaning there’s no need for teachers to purchase a separate eGuidePLUS. Your teacher-only resources will be available in learnON, in the teacher view. Students will only see a student view, while teachers can toggle between teacher and student view with the click of a button.

  • Can I use learnON offline?

    Yes, you can. All learnON titles come with a printable (PDF) that can be used offline, giving teachers the flexibility to teach their class, their way.

    learnON can also be used offline via the Jacaranda iPad and iPhone app. Students can download the app in the Apple App Store (available here). To use the app, students need to log in using their JacPLUS username and password and download the resources they need. From there, all resources will sync automatically with the JacPLUS bookshelf.

The interconnectedness of learnON with assessON, Knowledge Quest, myWorld Atlas etc., delivers variety and richness in learning outcomes for students, both inside and outside the classroom.

    However, our supplementary products are supplied separately to learnON and can be purchased individually.

    learnON titles are also available as part of the Jacaranda Digital Bundle (a package of 10+ premium digital resources) starting at $110 per student. To discuss specific pricing for your school or for more information, please contact your Jacaranda Sales Consultant.
