Testimonials

"The deep links within the LMS means I don’t have to worry about students using a separate password or getting lost going to a separate website. Links containing all of their assignments are right there when they log in to their LMS."

"With the content and assignments integrated directly into the weekly LMS packet, students know exactly what they have to do and where they need to go. The assignment grades flow directly into my grade book which allows me to focus on answering student questions that come up during the week."

"Our partnership will enable us to provide a greatly improved teaching and learning experience for users of Cengage and Desire2Learn solutions."
