Connect Exercises

As a learning science company we create content that builds-up higher order thinking skills. Within McGraw-Hill Connect®, we tag it accordingly so you can filter your search, assign it, and receive reporting on it. These content asset types can be associated with one or more levels of Bloom’s.

Depending on the course we offer a variety of exercises, examples might include: SmartBook, Click and Drag Exercises, iSeeIt! Animated videos, Self-Assessments, Case Analyses, Video Cases, Manager’s Hot Seat Videos, Application-Based Activities, etc. By assigning these activities, you can help students move from simple memorization to concept application.

Click-and-Drag Exercises

These exercises help students make the connection between theory and application through matching, ranking, or grouping activities. They might have students’ pair key terms to their definitions, place steps of a complex process in the correct order or categorize different examples according to the process or concept they represent. Instructors have the option to turn on hints for their students. Students access the hints by hovering over each item.

iSeeIt! Animated Videos

These brief, contemporary videos offer dynamic student-centered introductions, illustrations, and animations to guide students through challenging concepts. Ideal for before class as an introduction, during class to launch or clarify a topic, or after class for formative assessment.

ISEEIT! video example


Our research based self-assessments promote student self-awareness, self-reflection, and personal and professional development. New structured feedback explains how students should interpret their scores.

Case Analyses & Video Cases

Our assortment of written and video cases challenge students to analyze concepts as they manifest in scenarios related to a real-life product or company, fostering their ability to think critically in lecture and beyond. Thought-provoking questions check the students' ability to apply the course material and develop their workplace-readiness skills.

Manager’s Hot Seat Videos

These videos put students in the manager’s hot seat where they will use their critical thinking skills to apply the concepts they’ve learned to real managerial challenges. Students assume the role of the manager and answer multiple choice questions forcing them to make decisions on the spot.

Application-Based Activities

These activities provide students valuable practice using problem-solving skills to apply their knowledge to realistic scenarios. Students progress from understanding basic concepts to using their knowledge to analyze complex scenarios and solve real-life problems. Along the way, students see the implications of their decisions and are provided with feedback on how management theory should be informing their actions. They also receive detailed feedback upon completion of the activity. Assignable & auto-gradable.

These online simulations drive students to make business decisions in competitive situations that mirror the real life business environment.
