Overview

MindTap® Programming for Farrell's Programming Logic and Design, 9th Edition is an online learning solution designed to help students master the skills they need in today’s workforce. Research shows employers need critical thinkers, troubleshooters and creative problem-solvers to stay relevant in our fast paced technology-driven world. MindTap helps you achieve this with assignments and activities that are tied to learning objectives and provide real-life relevance. Hands-on labs designed to teach users to write and run code are now seamlessly integrated into MindTap so there is no installation or plugins, allowing students to code directly in the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) from their web browser. Powered by artificial intelligence, a chatbot provides hints and feedback when students get stuck, which encourages persistence through point-of-need support. For instructors, MindTap provides benefits and support including automatic grading, analytics and LMS integration with full flexibility to tailor a course. Readings and “Whiteboard Shorts” support the lecture, while RSS Feed assignments offer a deeper dive into the topics. Pre- and post- course assessments allow you to measure how much students have learned using analytics and reporting that makes it easy to see where the class stands in terms of progress, engagement and completion rates. Use the content and learning path as-is or pick and choose how our material will wrap around yours. You control what the students see and when they see it.

  • Coding labs in each unit provide students with the chance to write, test, and submit code for grading in Java, C++, or Python. The labs (accompanied by brief primers on each language) are a powerful tool that provide students with the hands-on practice and troubleshooting support needed to learn complex subject matter. “Just in time” help provides assistance that beginners can understand—without the technical jargon. In addition, the labs leverage artificial intelligence to create a feedback resource that continually gets smarter.
  • StudyHub is one-stop-studying tool that allows you to deliver important information and empowers your students to personalize their experience. Share content from the MindTap Reader and create notes and study guides to help students focus and succeed.
  • The Message Center app helps you to quickly and easily contact students directly from the MindTap platform. 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.
  • Although MindTap is populated with tests and quizzes, some instructors prefer to create their own. The IQ app allows instructors to easily create and add their own quizzes using questions from the pre-populated and customizable test bank.
  • MindTap helps streamline your workflow with carefully curated content and a unique set of tools saving you valuable time in your course preparations. In addition, automatically grades assignments and quizzes while also providing students with instant feedback on their work.
  • Provide students with organizational and study tools designed to better manage their limited time, allowing them to complete assignments whenever and wherever they are ready to learn.
  • Save students money in their course materials with a single destination that reflects exactly what’s important to you, the instructor.
  • With the MindTap Mobile App, you can keep your students informed of assignments, course due dates, or any changes to your course while also arming them with on-the-go study tools like flashcards and quizzing.
  • Build and personalize your course by integrating your own content into the MindTap Reader using your own documents or pull from sources like 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 to your syllabus exactly.
  • 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.
  • Engage students with course material specially customized for them by you streamlined in one proven, easy-to-use interface.
