SmartBook

Available within Connect, SmartBook actively tailors content to the individual student- The more a student interacts with SmartBook, the better it gets to know what they know and what they don’t know, helping students to maximize study time. By providing students with a safe place to make mistakes, showing them the areas they need to work on most, and by giving them consistent, personalized feedback at the exact moment they need it, SmartBook helps them to bridge their knowledge gaps and come to class prepared.

Application Exercises

Assignable within Connect, these exercises encourage students to apply concepts they’ve learned in an active environment with drag-and-drop, matching, and sequencing activities.


Video Cases

Companies like Warby Parker and Facebook are featured in these real-life videos that explore topics like ethics and privacy. Students watch the videos and complete assessments afterwards, giving them the chance to think critically about what they've watched and analyze how it relates to concepts learned in class.
