Helping students prepare for your class

SmartBook with Learning Resources - The first and only adaptive reading and study experience designed to change the way students read and master key course concepts. As a student engages with SmartBook, the program creates a personalized learning path by highlighting the most impactful concepts the student needs to learn at that moment in time and delivering learning resources-videos, animations, and other interactivities. These rich, dynamic resources help students learn the material, retain more knowledge, and get better grades.

Helping students engage in class

Tutorials and Animations - Within Connect, instructors can choose from a variety of questions, many of which are interactive or include a tutorial or animation to help students grasp more difficult concepts within each chapter. Instructors can also use the tutorials and animations during class time or one-on-one with students as an extra resource.
