MindTap Instructors Speak on Personalization - Diane

Instructor Diane Carter from the University of Idaho talks about how MindTap helps her personalize her course.

“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.”

“Almost across the board, students using MindTap improved on the main learning objectives of the class ...I’ve never seen any results like this.”

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

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

“MindTap puts practice questions in a format that works well for me.”
