Learning Lab

Learning Labs are online Homework solutions that allow your students to practice the most difficult concepts associated with their Cengage Learning textbooks in a simulated real-world environment. Developed to help you improve program quality & retention, Learning Labs prepare your students for their career by increasing comprehension and critical thinking skills.  Learning Labs engage students in dynamic skills-based activities and assessments that address all learning styles.

A brief Pretest assesses the student’s understanding at the start of each Learning Lab. Areas of improvement are identified so students know where they need to improve as they progress through each Lab. Learning Activities engage students and simulate real-world environments. Cengage utilizes creative, immersive instruction that is varied and adapts to each students learning style. Immediate feedback is also in place to enhance concept retention. Students can track their progress through immediate feedback in the Pretest and Learning Activities stages. Both students and instructors receive postest grades through their LMS gradebook. Flexible online delivery options make it easier than ever for you to integrate Learning Labs into your classroom and Learning Management System.
