Jerome Murray and Jim Anderson are math professors at Clark State Community College in Springfield, Ohio. They wanted to redesign a portion of Clark State’s Developmental Math program to include courses that allowed students to work at their own pace as well as have the option of completing the entire developmental math program within a year.
With these objectives in mind, Jerome and Jim set out to find a digital learning solution that would provide self-paced instruction and promote critical thinking skills. They also needed a solution that they could use in other math courses. “We wanted a learning solution that would allow us to build courses for College Algebra and Calculus in addition to Developmental Math,” says Jerome. When the faculty saw that Enhanced WebAssign® (EWA) could offer a unified platform for all levels of mathematics, they decided to adopt it for their program.
