“MindTap meets students in the fully digital age in which they live, tapping into their needs and interests, while giving instructors freedom and flexibility to customize courses to fit their needs and interests, too.”

“I like how everything is in one spot. They can read, do their assignments, and watch video right in the same location. It seems easy to navigate and customize.”

“MindTap is at the vanguard of developing means to generate student appeal while engaging them in the learning - writing - process. In an age where data and tech permeates the classroom, MindTap is a refreshing addition to education.”

“I felt like I had a tutor helping me, and reminding me all the good things to do for studying and completing assignments. It helped me stay on track.”

“Mind Tap is a product that will help you learn how to write better.”

"MindTap will keep you engaged with the work and you will actually learn."
