Kristen Quinn — Northern Essex Community College

With CengageNOW, my students have become more engaged with the material and are not so quick to give up on a homework assignment since they have so many resources to help them along.

Kristen Quinn has been teaching accounting for the past 9 years at Northern Essex Community College. She teaches all levels of accounting (financial, managerial, and intermediate) in face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses.

Kristen has been using CengageNOW since she started teaching in 2008 and uses it in all of her courses. It is a product that her students love to use and now, one of the first things they ask her when they start a new semester is, "Do we have CengageNOW for this course?" With CengageNOW, Kristen's students have become more engaged with the material and are not so quick to give up on homework assignments since they have so many resources to help them along. They also ask more questions because they have the "Email Instructor" to make it easy. With students doing their homework and spending the time needed on the course, their grades are higher and so are retention rates.

Kristen has been a Faculty Advisor with Cengage Learning for nearly six years, and one of her favorite assignments is working with other faculty to help them use the digital product to make teaching more engaging and to achieve the outcomes they want for their students.
