Mark F. Beck,

Mark Beck had been a Milady author since the first publication of The Theory and Practice of Therapeutic Massage in 1988. Mark began his professional career as a massage therapist in 1974. He started teaching massage in 1978 and became a massage school owner and director in 1980. As school director for over 15 years, he developed curriculum, taught classes and continued a part time clinical practice. He served on the boards of a state and a national massage organization in different capacities including sec. of education, sec. of certification and president. In 1996 he earned a bachelor's degree in Vocational Education with an emphasis on massage therapy from the University of Idaho. A skiing accident in 1990 resulted in a C-6 spinal cord injury that landed Mark in a wheelchair with quadriplegia. That ended his active practice as a massage therapist but did not quell his dedication to the profession or his desire to provide the best possible information to thousands of students entering the profession by continually updating and refining The Theory and Practice of Therapeutic Massage. Mark continued to be an advocate for excellence in massage education and accessibility for the disabled until he sadly passed away in November 2016.

MindTap Instructors Speak on Personalization - Anne

Instructor Anne Strauch from Rochester Institute of Technology talks about how MindTap helps her personalize her course.

"A program like MindTap helps me with time management because everything is in one place. So I
go through all the planning for a course using MindTap and I get it all there, it’s ready to go and
all, I have everything set up so everything is graded automatically so I can use my time during the semester to engage with students and I don’t have to waste my time grading papers."

"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."

"One of the best features of analytics is being able to identify those students that are at risk very early on in an academic course and to provide them with the support and tools that they need… and help those students overcome those challenges and help them become successful."

"…having the flexibility of doing my assignment whenever and however I want makes it a lot easier for me."

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