How do you motivate students to succeed in your Communication courses? If you’re looking for a way to increase motivation and engagement, try assigning digital. Our recent studies have shown that, when MindTap counts for at least 20% of their grade, students in Communication courses are engaging in course material more and performing better.

Recent analysis of MindTap usage across the 2014-2015 academic year demonstrates that using MindTap can have a significant and positive impact on student learning and outcomes.

Through our studies, we observed that:

Communication Studies students who use MindTap at least three hours per week are twice as likely to receive a 90% average or better compared to students who spend less than an hour.

Instructors who customize the learning path for their course get approximately 70% more students to spend an hour or more per week in the MindTap solution for their Communication course.

Students who use the flashcard app more than ten times throughout the term are more likely to get a 90% average or better.

Communications students who use the flashcards in MindTap perform better.
