Learning’s highly successful MindTap e-learning platform directly from their smartphones anytime, anywhere.
“MindTap Mobile offers the tools students tell us they want and need to be successful in the classroom, and delivers them in a way that seamlessly integrates into their lifestyle,” said Jim Donohue, Chief Product Officer at Cengage Learning. “From day one, student feedback was the driving force behind the creation of this app. We listened to the end user- the student- and created a platform that empowers them to take control of their education and learn in their own unique way.”...
Key Features of MindTap Mobile:
Course Notifications: Students can set due date reminders for all of their activities and assignments. They can also receive notifications when due dates change, scores are updated or when their instructor sends them a message. According to Cengage Learning research, messaging and notifications were reported to be valuable tools by 89% of students.
Flashcards: Each chapter in MindTap Mobile comes with pre-loaded flashcards. Students can also easily make additional flashcards of their own and access flashcards their instructor has shared with the class.
Practice Quizzes: Students are able to access pre-built quizzes or generate a self-quiz from any flashcard deck. The quizzing feature is designed to optimize even the smallest pockets of time allowing students to use free time for short but effective study sessions.
Recent efficacy studies conducted by independent research firms found that students using the MindTap digital learning solution achieved significantly higher grades across a number of disciplines. MindTap Mobile encompasses features from the MindTap platform that most directly align with the needs of today’s students. For example, student surveys showed that the ability to study course material in a gamified quiz was a highly valued feature and practice quizzing ranked the most popular study tool.
