Eric Bobo — Hinds Community College in Raymond

After incorporating [MindTap and Aplia] into my courses, student participation and homework completion rates increased, especially in the fully online courses where interaction with the text is necessary for success.

I am an instructor at Hinds Community College in Raymond, MS where I have taught History, Western Civilization and World Civilization courses for the past 15 years. I currently teach both traditional and fully online courses.

In my Western Civilization and World Civilization courses, I use MindTap and Aplia assignments because I need tools that will increase student engagement with the text and course materials, and also improve student retention. After incorporating these tools into my courses, student participation and homework completion rates increased, especially in the fully online courses where interaction with the text is necessary for success.

I earned my Master's degree in History from Jacksonville State University and did additional graduate work in History at the University of Southern Mississippi. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Education concentrating in Higher Education at Delta State University. In 2014, I was chosen as the college's Humanities Award recipient.
