MindTap Instructors Speak on Personalization - Anne

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

“With MindTap, students can learn at their own pace.”

“I don’t think I would have learned as much without MindTap. In other classes I don’t spend much time in the book because doing so is so involved and time consuming. MindTap saves time and provides us with more study tools than the textbook.

“I love having a reliable, interesting resource that isn’t me!”

“MindTap® lets the student be in charge of schoolwork.”

“I like digital, because I can do my work anywhere.”

“Flashcards help me memorize. I also take notes by highlighting and using colors to emphasize important parts.”
