Hi, I'm here to talk to you about some of the exciting features you'll find in MyLab IT.

Designed specifically for Information Technology students and instructors, MyLab IT offers quality content developed by practicing IT educators, effectively integrated into training and assessment exercises to enhance students' knowledge of Microsoft Office applications and computer concepts.

First off, it's challenging for instructors to find effective methods to teach Microsoft skills to students - where they can practice and get help. They also want something that offers auto-graded training and provides feedback. So with Realistic Simulated Training Exercises…

Students have a realistic, simulated training environment that allows them to learn Microsoft Office skills. It offers help and hints that use multiple methods of completion, is automatically graded and provides feedback so they can see what they've done incorrectly. Students are better prepared to apply their Microsoft Office knowledge. With the accessibility screen reader and language translation, instructors can make sure MyLab IT sims are accessible to student needs.

Next, instructors want students to be able to use their knowledge of Microsoft Office skills they've practiced and apply it to a live in the application project. With Grader Projects…

Instructors can easily assess their students' Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint skills by assigning projects that are submitted and immediately graded by MyLab IT's Grader engine. The engine also captures potential integrity violations at both the document and content level to ensure students are completing their own work.

From there, instructors want the flexibility to create and use Grader projects that not only come straight from the book but also align to their course. They'd also prefer not to grade these projects by hand. With Project Creation Tool…

Instructors can create grader projects from scratch, testing the skills that align to their course goals and learning outcomes - plus have them graded by the MyLab IT grading engine. Students apply the skills they've learned in training to a live, in the application project, and get immediate, personalized feedback.

Finally, instructors want to verify that students have obtained the Microsoft Office skills in the course and that those skills will eventually translate to potential employers. Through MyLab IT Badging…

Students are provided verified evidence that they have demonstrated specific skills using Microsoft Office applications. These earned badges can also be easily shared on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, online profiles and resumes leading to real opportunities in connecting with employers.
