Connect Master: 2-Semester Online Access for Principles of Economics https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/0077633822.jpeg 1 9780077633820 New products in principles of economics have been eager to address innovative ways of using technology to teach this introductory course. While these products are often accompanied by impressive digital resources, they all share one characteristic: they are still grounded in the traditional textbook format. As the first “digital-first” approach for the principles of economics course, Connect Master: Economics offers the same core content covered in mainstream textbooks, but in a way that breaks free from the constraints of a traditional textbook’s structure and format. This empowers instructors to take advantage of new approaches in teaching methodology to revitalize their courses. Students are engaged and empowered to connect concepts to application. Connect Master: Economics 1.0 launched in 2015 with over 200 distinct concepts. Based on extensive market feedback from instructors and student users, Connect Master: Economics 2.0 now covers over 250 topics! Each topic is anchored by an engaging 2-4 minute high-quality video, and accompanied by a suite of learning resources such as dynamic applications, worked examples, and assessment tools. With a concept-level approach, instructors are able to handpick every aspect of the curriculum, from concepts covered to sequencing, providing flexibility for instructors to tailor their courses in such a way that is appropriate for any school, at any level, and set to any depth. Instead of a class that revolves around static pages and chapters of a textbook, Carlos Asarta and Roger Butters envision a learning environment that revolves around the talents and abilities of the teacher in the classroom. The result is an experience that is motivating, accessible, and adaptable to how today’s students learn and obtain information.
