  • Promote online collaboration and group learning with online experiential exercises. Students can synchronously work together to create videos, write papers, deliver presentations and more. You can help teams work more effectively by joining team meetings and assigning group reviews.
  • Our digital solutions team helps you deliver MindTap through your LMS. Submit your syllabus, and we'll even create your digital course for you. Available 24 hours a day, our white glove technical support provides you and your students with help whenever you need it.
  • Track students in real time with the Progress App and adjust the course as needed based on course analytics. Results can be used to document skill levels for accreditation.
  • 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.

The learning path is based on our Engage, Connect, Perform, and Lead model. Students are drawn into the material with self-assessments. Quizzes and homework assignments help students connect concepts with the real world, and higher level homework assignments ask students to analyze and manage complex situations.

Interactive Self-Assessments engage students by helping them make personal connections to the content presented in the chapter.

Quizzes assess students' basic comprehension of the reading material to help you gauge their level of engagement and understanding of the content.

Assignments for each chapter. Challenge students to think critically and begin to think like managers.

Video Case Activities engage students by presenting everyday businesses facing managerial challenges, placing concepts in real-world context and making for great points of discussion.

Experiential Exercises challenge students to work in teams in our one-of-a-kind collaborative environment to solve real-world managerial problems and begin to experience firsthand what it's like to work in management.

Branching activities present challenging problems that cannot be solved with one specific correct answer. Students are presented with a series of decisions to be made based upon information they are given about a company and are scored according to the quality of their decisions.

Adaptive study centers are provided at the unit level and the exam level to help students work toward mastery of course content. Material presented is customized to students' specific needs and serves up questions, feedback, remediation, and instructional content according to how they progress.

Concept videos present short enrichment clips of information on topics students typically struggle with.
