Foster student engagement and peer-to-peer learning

Learning Catalytics™

Generate class discussion, guide your lecture, and promote peer-to-peer learning with real-time analytics. MyLab & Mastering with eText now provides Learning Catalytics—an interactive student response tool that uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking.

Instructors, you can:

  • Pose a variety of open-ended questions that help your students develop critical thinking skills
  • Monitor responses to find out where students are struggling
  • Use real-time data to adjust your instructional strategy and try other ways of engaging your students during class
  • Manage student interactions by automatically grouping students for discussion, teamwork, and peer-to-peer learning

Help students achieve greater conceptual understanding

Enhanced eText

Engagement in lecture is essential to student success, and continuing that engagement outside of class is just as critical. MyAccountingLab with Enhanced eText keeps students engaged in learning on their own time, while helping them achieve greater conceptual understanding of course material.

The Enhanced eText’s animations bring learning to life, and its interactive tutorials and exercises allow students to apply the very concepts they’re reading about. The results of all exercises feed into the MyAccountingLab Study Plan, powered by Knewton, which provides an exceptional adaptive learning experience for each individual student.

Combining resources that illuminate content with accessible self-assessment, MyAccountingLab with Enhanced eText provides students with a complete digital learning experience – all in one place.
