iN2L Technology at MorningStar
MorningStar of Sparks is pleased to offer our residents a state-of-the-art way to connect with the “It’s Never 2 Late” technology that combines touchscreen computers with intuitive, picture-based software. The revolutionary engagement system contains a library of 3,000 ways to connect socially, spiritually, and intellectually and offers physical stimulation and emotional support.
The intuitive design provides numerous user-friendly components to ensure it is easy for all of our residents to comfortably use the computer program regardless of their abilities or limitations. With a simple press of a button, the user can launch hundreds of applications designed for recreation or social connections.
The program simplifies email and offers webchats using Skype, an array of online newspapers and easy navigation of the web. Each user can personalize their experience on iN2L by setting up a “My Page,” in order to easily access their favorite games, email addresses, family photos, and favorite websites. A resident’s My Page can be used to foster interactions between family members and to keep up-to-date on events and goings on through Skype and email.
All of the program’s activities are adapted to engage residents’ interest and unique abilities and include trivia, puzzle and brain games designed to entertain as well as to maintain brain functions. In addition it also has inspirational videos, sermons, history, quizzes and interactive virtual tours to name but a few of the many features.
