Using an iPad or tablet in the classroom allows a teacher to assess students without having to be seated at a computer. Some important notes:
- ESGI can be used on any tablet that has an internet browser.
- If using an iPad, Safari and Chrome are the only browsers ESGI supports (please do not use Firefox, Edge/Internet Explorer).
- An ESGI app is not available, nor is it needed!
- Like any other web application, ESGI requires an internet connection.
- Due to design limitations, creating new tests must be done on a computer (PC or Mac). Images and text cannot be dragged on a tablet.
- Use TWO FINGERS to swipe when scrolling through the student list on an iPad. One finger scrolling results in the entire screen scrolling instead of just the student list.
- Pinch your pointer finger and thumb together on the screen at the same time to zoom in or zoom out.
- Additional information can be found on our iPad Troubleshooting Support Page.
