MindTap® Multimedia Reader is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build their confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap. MindTap: Powered by You. This multimodal reader includes learning paths for reading, responding to multimodal texts and research. Students become better thinkers, communicators, and writers as they review every aspect of the writing process. Interactive activities focus on grammar and mechanics while a paper management system allows electronic submission, grading, and peer review while tracking potential plagiarism. Video tutorials and examples support research and professional tutoring guides students from rough drafts to polished writing. MindTap works with your existing LMS.

  • An instructional learning path on Reading and Responding to Multimodal Texts introduces a framework for observation, analysis, interpretation, and writing in response to multimodal works. A student sample provides concrete detail through the entire path, beginning with annotating a website and culminating in first and final drafts. Others paths on written words, audio text, images, and videos define the terms used to analyze that mode and provide annotated examples. A video-rich learning path on conducting research includes instruction, examples, quizzes, and direct links into Questia.
  • Provide students with organizational and study tools designed to better manage their limited time, allowing them to complete assignments whenever and wherever they are ready to learn.
  • Track students in real time with the Progress app and adjust the course as needed based analytics of interactivity in the course.
  • With the MindTap Mobile App, you can keep your students informed of assignments, course due dates, or any changes to your course while also arming them with on-the-go study tools like flashcards and quizzing.
  • Empower students with the information to know where they stand at all times—both individually and compared to the highest performers in class within the student view of the Progress App.
  • The readings—which include video and audio as well as textual readings—are divided into eight themes, including How Social Media Shapes Us, Challenging Stereotypes, and Your Writing Life. Each reading is accompanied by reading and writing suggestions, questions about the works’ rhetorical strategies, and auto-gradable comprehension questions for instructors who wish to assign them.
  • Build and personalize your course by integrating 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. 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.
  • Easily grade student papers electronically using customizable rubrics and correction mark sets that link to related content in the eBook. Save time managing peer review electronically and catch citation and plagiarism issues early with our originality checker.
  • Select readings to include in your course from a database of over 10 million articles and 83,000 full books.
  • Auto-graded grammar, research, and citation assignments save valuable class time while giving students an opportunity to hone these important skills. Instant feedback about their performance helps students understand and apply the concepts.
  • A variety of activity options allow your students to create their own multimodal compositions and share them with their peers.
