MindTap Instructors Speak on a Streamlined Workflow - Jonathan

Instructor Jonathan Varhola from Wright State University talks about how MindTap helps him streamline his workflow.

“MindTap’s greatest strengths are the progress tracking and the ability to add [your own] materials that are gradable.”

“I’m convinced that the higher course ratings and grades were, in large part, a result of students’ engagement. It was an unmitigated success.”

“MindTap was very useful – it was easy to follow and everything was right there.”

“I’m definitely more engaged because of MindTap.”
