Encourage students to think critically

Problem-Based Learning Assignments

Problem-Based Learning Assignments encourage students to ask questions, think critically, solve problems and, if working in a group, engage with others. Problem-Based Learning Assignments help students assume responsibility for their own learning, helping them to exercise leadership, and facilitate their ability to apply their knowledge. Students who actively participate in their own learning process are better able to link concept to application. Only available for Ebert’s Business Essentials with MyLab Intro to Business.

Help students think like managers

Decision-Making Mini-Simulations

Decision-Making Mini-Simulations put your students in the role of manager as they make a series of decisions based on a realistic business challenge. The simulations change and branch based on their decisions, creating various scenario paths. At the end of each simulation, students receive a grade and a detailed report of the choices they made with the associated consequences included. UPDATED! Fully re-written, decision-making mini-simulations are now available with an updated design and workflow.

Help each student learn through personalized study

Dynamic Study Modules

Help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. Once completed, Dynamic Study Modules explain the concept using materials from the text. These are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers. NEW! Instructors can now remove questions from Dynamic Study Modules to better fit their course. Available for select titles.
