About Fast ForWord demos
MySciLEARN provides demo versions of the Fast ForWord products that allow staff to step through the product exercises as a demonstration for students, parents, or other interested parties. In addition, students can use the demos to explore the exercises on their own. Demos are intended for demonstration purposes only, and do not save points and will not save a student's status in the exercises. You can disable demo access for a student if needed, and the student will not see any demos on the Demos screen (see Set student access to demos for details).
Tip: For students using iPad, follow the steps in Fast ForWord demos on iPad. Staff members can demo the Fast ForWord exercises on a computer, as detailed in this topic.
