Aplia helps students understand Sociology as a science through fresh and compelling content, brief engagement activities that illustrate key concepts, and thought-provoking questions. Engagement activities pique student interest and motivate students to learn about a concept. Short experiments, videos, and surveys provide a range of experiential learning opportunities. In addition, questions about real-world situations hone students' critical thinking skills, while auto-assigned, auto-graded assignments hold students accountable for the material before they come to class, increasing their effort and preparation. Immediate, detailed explanations for every answer enhance student comprehension, and Gradebook Analytics allow instructors to monitor and address performance on a student-by-student and topic-by-topic basis.
