I believe that the assignments are a very effective learning tool when used correctly." "[To enable positive outcomes, I use] anything that encourages [students] to be active learners. I use Aplia for homework and conceptual questions during class to encourage participation." "Almost across the board, students using MindTap improved on the main learning objectives of the class ...I've never seen any results like this." "MindTap was very useful - it was easy to follow and everything was right there." "I'm definitely more engaged because of MindTap." About the Author Dr. William A.
