MindTap Instructors Speak on a Streamlined Workflow - Jonathan

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

"Almost across the board, students using MindTap improved on the main learning objectives of the class ...I've never seen any results like this."

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