Gabriela Martorell

Connect Psychology is a state-of-the-art learning environment that helps instructors connect students to their coursework. McGraw-Hill’s LearnSmart Advantage is the new series of adaptive learning products housed within Connect and fueled by LearnSmart – the most widely used adaptive learning resource that is designed to maximize productivity and efficiency in learning. These adaptive learning tools create high impact study sessions that focus students on the concepts that they need to learn.  The LearnSmart Advantage suite does this by ensuring that each student is deliberately practicing the concepts that they need to learn or are struggling with, and identifying and bringing back the content that the student is most likely to forget.  Also available in Connect, Milestones of Development is a powerful video series that allows students to witness life as it unfolds.  With Milestones, students can track the early stages of physical, social, and emotional development and see a longitudinal view of real children achieving their developmental milestones.  Assessment is included to help students and instructors track progress and gauge understanding of key course concepts.  Whether accessing online homework or quizzes, using the LearnSmart Advantage adaptive study tools, or utilizing the interactive eBook, Connect provides a complete digital solution for your course.

Key Features

  • LearnSmart


    LearnSmart is an adaptive study tool proven to strengthen memory recall, increase class retention, and boost grades.

Real-time reports quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students—or the entire class.

    A powerful tool that allows students to witness the life of a person as it unfolds, from infancy to late adulthood. With Milestones, your students can track the early stages of physical, social, and emotional development. By watching one child over time and/or comparing various children’s development, Milestones provides a unique, experiential learning environment that is achieved by being able to view real human development as it happens in the form of pre- and post-transitional milestone segments. In addition, McGraw-Hill’s Milestones includes a powerful, customizable assessment tool, to help students and instructors track progress and gauge understanding of key course concepts.
