    The Alaska Library Network is happy to announce they have implemented a “no login” option for Mango Languages.

    When you visit http://libraries.mangolanguages.com/alaska/start/, you ought to see a button in the top third of the screen that says “Start Learning!” Clicking on that button takes you to the courses list, where you can start working on language learning immediately. Mango won’t track your progress like it will if you register for an account. But it is one less obstacle to getting to the material.

     If you DON’T see the button, please go to http://alaskalibrarynetwork.org/get-help/ and fill out a problem report from the affected computer. This sends the e-mail address to ALN, which is vital to resolving authentication problems.
