Celia Muench, our Executive Director, demonstrating the Learning Programs for iPad at CPEN.

The design of the CancerHelp Learning Programs builds on our Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) study with low literacy cancer patients.  Each CancerHelp Learn More About Program includes a Listen and Learn® module with spoken audio of the full text and graphics of award winning NCI publications and enables you to show your own physician video.

The iPad, with its strong support for multimedia, provides a wonderful learning tool for users of all education levels and for those for whom English is a second language.  With special video and the CancerHelp Listen and Learn® modules with spoken audio, users can hear to make learning more engaging.  Users can also read using their vision and the touch of the iPad user-friendly touchscreen lets users have a tactile interaction with learning.
