Ambitious new students are making their way through campus doors as instructors are perfecting their lessons. And each semester, you both wonder how to get the most out of your time spent together.
Today, digital and online learning opportunities can be customized to fit the needs of any student, any instructor, any classroom. And the future of higher education is only getting brighter.
The college classroom is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Two instructors within the same college department may have different preferences, just as two students in the same classroom may have different needs. When searching for learning materials for your classroom, keep in mind that customizable content can add substantial value to your classroom if students find themselves truly compelled to purchase the required materials and use them as assigned.
A more engaged student will lead find themselves more prepared to enter the workforce or continue their education after graduation.
Buy/assign only what is needed
Digital tools give you and your students more flexibility in what is assigned to them. For example, students can purchase single eChapters through CengageBrain as opposed to the entire eBook. This means you can feel more comfortable assigning a text that you only use a few chapters in, because students can save money by choosing to purchase only those chapters.
Another way to make sure they’re getting the most out of their college experience is by streamlining school work and getting organized. Within a digital platform like MindTap, instructors can alter classroom materials such as textbooks and exercises to only show what will be used in class.
Class content anywhere, anytime
When you go digital, you have instant access to all your course content anytime, anywhere you’re connected to the internet. No more worrying about whether or not students brought the right book. No more rushing back to their car in the parking lot because they forgot something. As long as they have access to a tablet or computer, they’re good to go.
And MindTap’s new mobile app is made for today’s student – providing the mobility and flexibility to make any time study time. Students can view the same materials on multiple devices (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) so they’ll always be prepared to learn.
