Panorama’s easily understood chronology, coupled with its innovative, proven digital tools, ensures that learners are always moving forward as they study change and continuity across time, assess knowledge gaps, and mold critical thinking skills. The result is improved course performance through greater understanding of our world’s past, its large-scale global trends, and its impact on and relevance to 21st-century students.
