Engage students and bring the text to life

Classroom Videos

As students read through their eText they encounter embedded videos that use real classroom footage to illustrate or expand on key chapter concepts. In this way, abstract or difficult-to-understand concepts are brought to life. Students read about a concept and then see it demonstrated with real teachers and students, helping them better understand course content.

Guide student learning


Throughout their eText students are presented with opportunities to check their understanding of key concepts through multiple-choice assessments. Students receive immediate feedback to guide their learning and ensure they master the key learning outcomes. Results are organized and reported to the grade book by learning outcome, enabling students and instructors to focus on the concepts that require the most attention.

Help students apply their learning

Application Exercises

Interactive Application Exercises and Assessments involving the analysis of dynamic videos, case studies, and artifacts help students apply and internalize their learning. Engaging in these learning experiences helps students practice and strengthen skills that prepare them for classroom observation and teaching.

Teach students to effectively observe and analyze teaching

Video Analysis Tool in MediaShare

The Video Analysis Tool in MediaShare helps teacher candidates build the observation and analysis skills they’ll need to be successful educators. The exercises feature authentic classroom video clips, each illustrating a key theory, strategy, or topic. Accompanying rubrics scaffold students’ analysis of the techniques shown, while video analysis software enables students to annotate the clips with their rationales.

Additional Features

Track students' progress

The online gradebook automatically tracks your students' results on tests, homework, and practice exercises and gives you control over managing results and calculating grades. The gradebook provides a number of flexible grading options, including exporting grades to a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel and synchronizing MyLab grades with your LMS gradebook. And, it lets you measure and document your students' learning outcomes.

Easily scalable and shareable content

MyLab enables you to manage multiple class sections, and lets other instructors copy your settings so a standardized syllabus can be maintained across your department. Should you want to use the same MyLab course next semester, with the same customized settings, you can copy your existing course exactly — and even share it with other faculty members.
