Magdalena Andrade; Jeanne Egasse; Elías Miguel Muñoz; María José Cabrera-Puche

We know that students are changing. Technology is changing. The idea of the “classroom” is changing. Now, the way students experience Spanish can change as well! Tu mundo is a first. Its groundbreaking adaptive diagnostic and synchronous/asynchronous conversation tools create a 24/7 learning environment never before possible. With Tu mundo, instructors can tailor the environment while students tailor the experience, allowing everyone to take ownership of the learning experience.

Key Features

  • LearnSmart

    LearnSmart

    LearnSmart is an adaptive study tool proven to strengthen memory recall, increase class retention, and boost grades. Students are able to study more efficiently because they are made aware of what they know and don’t know. Real-time reports quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students—or the entire class.

  • EBook1

    Integrated eBook

    When learning tools are interactive, content is more approachable and engagement is deeper. Connect includes an Integrated eBook that builds student comprehension through animation, audio and video. As part of its rich media format, students can insert and review notes, highlight text, conduct searches for specific content and interact with high-impact images.

  • German_IntroductoryGerman_Kontakte7e_Tschirner_AssignmentBuilder

    Assignment Builder

    You can choose from a wide variety of assignment types and policy settings for each assignment you create within Connect. Through Connect, you are able to fully customize your assignments with policy setting capabilities such as: how many attempts are allowed by students, what type of automatic feedback they will receive, writing and creating questions of various types, how the content is organized, and more.

  • Spanish_IntroductorySpanish_Puntos9e_Dorwick_Mundointeractivo

    Mundo interactivo

    provides a digital world through which your students are immersed in the language and culture, and complete task-based activities that allow them to develop and practice their skills through real-world scenarios. With each scenario, the student receives an assignment. In earlier scenarios, the tasks are simple, such as information-gathering and note-taking. As your students work through the scenarios, they receive “promotions” and the tasks become more involved, for example, writing the script for a report and, towards the end of the text, writing and delivering the report.

  • Interactive Activities

    Interactive activities are designed to reinforce textbook concepts and aim at a higher level of understanding and application. The activities provide feature seamless assignability and automatic grading capabilities, and a variety of assessment types including click-and-drag and multiple choice.

More Features

  • LearnSmart Achieve

    LearnSmart Achieve is the first and only adaptive study experience designed to boost student success by providing individualized learning resources.  As students master course content, reports inform instructors on student and class performance. Time management features help students better prioritize their time, improve their course performance, and come to class ready to engage.

Case Study

I think one of the main challenges that Connect helps to overcome is the time factor. Learning a language is very time consuming, and it takes more than 3 hours in class each week to master a language. Connect Spanish helps with this in the sense that the students can use it to not only do the homework assignments, but also to practice on their own with a wide range of activities.
