Aplia Instructor Testimonial: Jarren Gonzales

“I was very engaged; the content in Aplia is useful. The study tools and materials in Aplia most definitely help me feel more prepared. I understood more than I would have otherwise.”

“[Aplia] has facilitated a greater level of meaningful engagement for my students, and has prepared them more effectively to be successful on the TSI Writing exam. Thank you.”

“Aplia helps and encourages the students to do the readings and pay more attention to the information, and it will allow you to bring in more examples and have APPLIED examples.”
