Engaging learning tools

Learning Catalytics™ 

Learning Catalytics is an interactive classroom tool that lets you use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop to participate and stay engaged. Simply respond to the questions your instructor posts during class. Your professor can use the results of these questions to help address misunderstandings, start small group discussions, or decide that you’re ready to move on to a new idea. With Learning Catalytics, you can tell your professor what you did—or didn’t—understand without saying a word.

MediaShare

Good communication skills open doors, whether at school or in the workplace. To build these skills, MediaShare offers an engaging online environment where students can interact with both peers and instructors. Mobile-friendly and structured like a social network, MediaShare facilitates interactive learning by making it easier than ever for students and instructors to share and comment on speeches, group projects, outlines, and more. Users can upload original content for peer and instructor feedback, or embed YouTube content with just a few clicks. And because comments on student speeches are time-stamped, MediaShare lets students process contextualized feedback quickly and easily, leading to improved communication skills.

A Personalized Learning Experience

MyLab Literature keeps students focused and accelerates their progress using a combination of macro-level assessments, a course-level diagnostic test, and micro assessments through pre- and post-tests for each set of topics.

The Composing Space integrates market-leading resources for literature, writing, grammar, and research within an easy-to-use writing environment that looks and functions like most popular word processing programs. Students have these powerful learning tools at their fingertips 24/7 as they research, draft, and revise. In this dynamic application, students can receive feedback from their instructor, their peers, and a professional Pearson tutor. Based on their individual needs, students are encouraged to think critically as they revise and improve their skills.

The Literature Collection

MyLab Literature includes Kennedy and Gioia's popular series The Literature Collection, an eText with more than 700 selections and valuable multimedia resources—including professional performances, author biographies, contextual videos, and interactive student papers—that bring literature to life.
