Some courses have suggested mobile apps to enrich students’ learning, many of which are free, but some have a cost. Both free and pay subscription mobile apps are optional within Saylor courses.
All activities or opportunities that have associated costs are entirely optional and will not influence the students final grade or the quality of their experience on Saylor, and choosing to forego optional activies will not interfere with students’ mastery of course Learning Outcomes.
We’re working on eliminating this extra step, so bear with us for the time being!
