Debora Rager is the full-time instructor of Spanish at Simpson University in Redding, California, and has more than 25 years of experience teaching Spanish and French. The university recently implemented a rule specifying that any course with more than one session must include at least one online session. Consequently, Debora now teaches both an online and a traditional session for both her Spanish I and Spanish II courses.
When she realized that she would be taking some of her classes online, Debora started looking at the available options, including iLrn™, an all-in-one course management system featuring communication tools that encourage students to use language outside of the classroom. She attended an iLrn presentation as well as one from another publisher. “Hands down, iLrn was so much better that it really wasn’t even a choice. It was the obvious choice,” she says.
