In Personal Health and Wellness courses, students want to learn how to successfully take care of their physical, mental, and emotional health.
As an instructor, you also want them to see academic success—and you may increase the likelihood of this success in your course by assigning digital. Students in Personal Health and Personal Fitness & Wellness courses are spending more time on their homework and earning better grades when MindTap counts for 20% of their grade.
Digital learning tools matter to today’s students. According to a recent report, 74% of surveyed college students feel they would perform better if their instructors would use more technology.
Recent analysis of MindTap usage for all disciplines across the 2014-2015 academic year demonstrates that using MindTap can have a significant and positive impact on student learning and outcomes. In our recent study, we observed that:
- Students spend 50% more time working in MindTap if it counts for at least 20% of their grade.
- Students in Health courses who use MindTap every week are twice as likely to get an 80% average or higher compared to students who only log in every other week.
- Instructors who customize the learning path for their course get approximately 70% more students to spend an hour or more per week in MindTap.
- In MindTap, students using the Flashcard app more than ten times during the term are more likely to get a 90% average or better.
