Carolyn H. Hopper, Middle Tennessee State University

For more than 30 years, Dr. Hopper has been involved with Student Success at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. She is a nationally known lecturer and workshop leader on topics such as learning how to learn, learning styles, memory, time management, effective classroom techniques, and using technology in the classroom. She is a frequent guest at the National and Fall Energizer conferences for College Survival and is active in the NADE and CRLA organizations. Carolyn's Study Skills website (http://capone.mtsu.edu/studskl/) has been visited by more than a million people! When asked to describe her teaching style, Carolyn says: “I am first of all enthusiastic about learning how to learn. I get excited about learning and hopefully my students catch the spirit. My classes are a combination of lecture supported by many visuals and hands-on activities. Skills for being successful in college are learned by doing. So, once students understand a concept, my aim for them is to develop the skills by practice and make modification to the skills that will work for them. A student in my class can expect homework due every class period. My style may seem casual and somewhat laid back, but each class is carefully planned with goals and objectives in mind. I am extremely demanding but would like to think that I am patient. I try to make sure that everything we do in class is backed up on the website.”
  • Control what content students see and when they see it with a learning path that can be used as-is or matched to your syllabus exactly.
  • Create a unique learning path of relevant readings, multimedia and activities that move students up the learning taxonomy from basic knowledge and comprehension to analysis, application and critical thinking.
  • Assign interactive versions of the chapter activities, reflection writing activities, MindTap-only chapter quizzes, and Aplia assignments for each chapter to assess students’ comprehension and application of the course material. Have your students complete the Virtual Field Trips to gain a better understanding of how to effectively research and evaluate online sources. Ask them to watch the student videos for insight into how other students effectively overcame challenges to achieve greater success.
  • Integrate your own content into the MindTap Reader using your own documents or pull from sources like RSS feeds, YouTube videos, websites, Google Docs and more.
  • Use powerful analytics and reports that provide a snapshot of class progress, time in course, engagement and completion.
  • Empower students with the information to know where they stand at all times—both individually and compared to the highest performers in class.
  • Help students stay organized and efficient with a single destination that reflects exactly what’s important to you, the instructor.
  • Automatically grade assignments and quizzes.

MindTap Instructors Speak on a Streamlined Workflow - Jonathan

Instructor Jonathan Varhola from Wright State University talks about how MindTap helps him streamline his workflow.

“MindTap’s greatest strengths are the progress tracking and the ability to add [your own] materials that are gradable.”

"For the population of students that are enrolled in our Study Skills course that have difficulty applying what they have learned to other examples or areas, these [MindTap] features will help them develop higher order learning."

"I like the online chapter activities and the Aplia [in MindTap] because it seems to further develop the ideas from the chapter and give students some interesting ways to think about the ideas thereby assisting with the transfer challenge. And I think the journals are essential for students to become more self-aware as learners, to watch which learning strategies they use and what presents the greatest challenge for them."

“MindTap was very useful – it was easy to follow and everything was right there.”

“I’m definitely more engaged because of MindTap.”

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