CIBA Vision's Academy2GO

CIBA Vision's Academy2GO for the iPhone provides a set of comprehensive learning tools for eye care professionals and their staff members that enable accreditation on the go. Created by a division of Novartis, the app includes insights from other eye care professionals from around the world, as well as access to tools from CIBA Vision's Academy for Eyecare Excellence. Learning modules, which take roughly 40 minutes each to complete, can be paused at any time, allowing for learning at comfortable--and sometimes necessary--pace. The free app, which was updated last month to work on newer versions of iOS, is compatable with the iPod touch and the iPad, in addition to the iPhone.
