- you could recreate the 1-on-1 experience of working through difficult concepts in office hours with every one of your students without having to invest any office hour time to do so?
- you could see at a glance how well each of your students (and sections) was performing in each segment of your course?
- you had all of the assignments and resources for your course pre-organized by learning objective and with point-and-click flexibility?
- every student had 24-7 access to a resource that would help them identify their weak areas and provide them with a personalized plan for improvement?
At McGraw-Hill, we have been asking a lot of these questions and many more for some time now. We did not stop at simply asking questions either. We visited with faculty like you across the country and also observed you doing what you do to prepare and deliver your courses. We watched students as they worked through assignments and studied for exams. The result of these thousands of hours of research and development is Connect Psychology, the new learning management tool that bolsters student performance at the same time it makes instructors’ lives easier and more efficient.
