Kim Feager started college twenty years ago, but marriage, family, and an accelerating career led her to sideline her quest for a higher education degree. Today, she’s back in school, working full time at another job and attending St. Charles Community College in Missouri at night, where she majors in applied science with an intent to obtain a new career in health care.
Kim has used three different digital products since returning to college. She liked MindTap® Psychology the best for the way it helped her learn concepts and prepare for exams, and for the convenience it provided by allowing her to listen to reading assignments anywhere.
It took Kim some time to get “reacclimated” to being a student, and MindTap made the transition easier by helping her make good use of her study time as she read and completed homework. Kim most appreciated MindTap’s text-to-speech app, ReadSpeaker, which helped her absorb course information anywhere she was able to listen. She also appreciated the visual aspects of MindTap, such as video clips, word activities, and its overall interactivity. MindTap’s assignments also helped Kim see the course concepts she understood, and where she needed to go back for additional help.
