Using the Application Store

Your Learner's Block has an Application Store allowing on-click installation of popular EdTech platforms.

To install from the Application Store, you will need:

  1. Internet connectivity via Wi-Fi or Ethernet‚Äč

  2. Sufficient space on your device for the downloaded application

If you would like to know the space required for each application you can find the source containers on GitHub, although it is unlikely you will encounter issues if you have chosen a suitable memory card.

Installing an Application

To install an application click the Settings toggle in the top right of the interface .

Scroll down to the Application Store section and click the refresh button to fetch the latest list of available applications.

Choose an application to install on your device and click 'Install':

Using an Application

After installing an application it will be available to all users via the frontpage of your Learner's Block. Click the application you want to use to begin:

If you want the installed application to be the first thing people see when they access your Block you can change the default loading page.

Updating an Application

To check for available updates, press the refresh button.

If updates are available the button will change to indicate 'Update Available'. Click the button and the update will begin.

Updates follow the update procedure of the application provider. This means that if the application provided allows for updates without losing your settings and files then the same will be true for your update on the Learner's Block.
