Strengthen critical analysis and decision-making skills for the real world

Operations Management Simulations

Operations Management Simulations give students hands-on experience in real-world roles, helping them make decisions, think critically, and link course concepts to on-the-job application. 

By receiving real-time, dynamic feedback from stakeholders, students see the impact of their choices and can gauge their performance against individual, peer, and system metrics. 

Results of these simulations are recorded in the MyLab Gradebook.

Learning Catalytics™

Learning Catalytics is an interactive classroom tool that allows every student to participate. Instructors ask ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ questions that help students ​recall​ ​ideas,​ ​apply​ ​concepts, and​ ​develop​ ​critical-thinking​ ​skills. Students​ answer ​using​ ​their​ ​smartphones,​ ​tablets,​ ​or​ ​laptops to show that ​they​ ​do—or ​don’t—understand. Instructors monitor​ ​responses​ to adjust their ​teaching​ approach, and even set up ​peer-to-peer​ ​learning. More importantly, they use ​real-time​ ​analytics​ to ​address​ ​student misconceptions​ ​the​ ​moment​ ​they​ ​occur and ensure they hear​ ​from​ ​EVERY​ ​student​ ​when​ ​it​ ​matters most.

Additional Features

A powerful homework and test manager

A powerful homework and test manager lets you create, import, and manage online homework assignments, quizzes, and tests that are automatically graded. You can choose from a wide range of assignment options, including time limits, proctoring, and maximum number of attempts allowed. The bottom line: MyLab means less time grading and more time teaching.

Comprehensive online course content

Filled with a wealth of content that is tightly integrated with your textbook, MyLab lets you easily add, remove, or modify existing instructional material. You can also add your own course materials to suit the needs of your students or department. In short, MyLab lets you teach exactly as you'd like.

Robust gradebook tracking

The Gradebook offers an easy way for you and your students to see their performance in your course. Item Analysis lets you quickly see trends by analyzing details like the number of students who answered correctly/incorrectly, time on task, and more. And because it's correlated with the AACSB Standards, you can track students' progress toward outcomes that the organization has deemed important in preparing students to be leaders.

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.
