Overview

MindTap® College Success Toolkit is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap: Powered by You. MindTap helps students bridge potential digital competency gaps, engage in critical thinking about goals and behaviors, and identify strengths and potential weakness. Personalized self-assessments measure 10 non-cognitive College Success Factors known to impact student retention. Aplia™-based homework modules and journal activities focus on 16 key success topics to help students apply concepts. Add your own content to create your customized College Success course. Students benefit from the process of self-discovery, awareness, remediation and activities that help them build skills.

  • Save your students money in their course materials and simplify their workflow with a single destination that reflects exactly what’s important to you and them… all at a low price point.
  • Personalize your course by integrating your own content and assignments or pull from sources like online readings, RSS feeds, YouTube videos, websites, Google Docs and more. Control what content students see and when they see it with a learning path that can be used as-is or matched exactly to your syllabus.
  • Assign the College Success Factors Index (CSFI) to assess your students’ patterns of behavior and attitudes in 10 areas that influence college success, easily identify at-risk students with early-alert reporting, validate your college success program with a post-course assessment of students’ progress, and improve retention rates. Further reading on each factor advises students on their areas of strength as well as how to build up the areas in which they need to improve in order to realize greater success.
  • Use the Aplia homework assignments organized around 16 major success topics to assess your students’ grasp of the material, help them gain mastery by attempting multiple versions of the activities, and build their critical thinking skills by applying concepts to real-world situations.
  • Have your students watch the curated and up-to-date videos on key college success topics for additional perspectives on important course content, without having to search for these on your own.
  • Track your students in real time with the Progress App—adjust the course as needed based on analytics of interactivity, assignment scores, and overall engagement in the course.
  • Provide students with organizational and study tools designed to help them better manage their limited time and to complete assignments whenever and wherever they are ready to learn.
  • Empower students with the information to know where they stand at all times—both individually and compared to the highest performers in class—within the student view of the Progress App.
  • Easily and quickly contact students wherever they are online directly from the Message Center app within MindTap. Any message posted in the Message Center is communicated directly to each student enrolled in the course via the communication medium designated by the student, even if they aren’t logged in!
