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.

  • SmartBook

    SmartBook

    SmartBook is the first and only adaptive reading experience designed to change the way students read and learn. It creates a personalized reading experience by highlighting the most impactful concepts a student needs to learn at that moment in time.  As a student engages with SmartBook, the reading experience continuously adapts by highlighting content based on what the student knows and doesn’t know. This ensures that the focus is on the content he or she needs to learn, while simultaneously promoting long-term retention of material. Use SmartBook’s real-time reports to quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students–or the entire class. The end result? Students are more engaged with course content, can better prioritize their time, and come to class ready to participate.

  • BandE_Interactive_Application

    Interactive Applications

    Interactive Applications stimulate critical thinking and reinforce key concepts, and students receive immediate feedback and can track their progress in their own report. Students will be asked to “click and drag” specific choices to make decisions, categorize, or put in a time sequence, and then are asked multiple-choice questions to confirm understanding of the key concepts of the activity.

More Features

  • 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.

  • Detailed Feedback

    Connect Finance helps students learn by providing complete step-by-step solutions for every problem, and you decide when students receive the solutions. Solutions include calculator keystrokes when applicable. These solutions can then be accessed before an exam so students can use them as a study tool for their tests.

  • End of Chapter and Testbank Content

    Connect Finance includes both static and algorithmic versions of end of chapter problems and exercises, and the testbank.

  • Lecture Capture with Tegrity

    Overcome time constraints and busy student schedules 

    With simple, one-click recording students can access your class lectures at anytime from anywhere an internet connection is accessible. A powerful keyword search function quickly pinpoints needed information. Easy access outside of class combined with a rich user experience translates into more learning opportunities and better prepared students.

  • Online Learning Center Content

    Your instructor resources such as the instructor’s manual, solutions, and PowerPoint are all available on the Library Tab in Connect. Students can also access their content in this area also.

  • Digital Success Academy

    The Digital Success Academy is your go-to resource for building your Connect knowledge from the ground up. Whether you’re new to Connect or looking for advanced tips, you’ll find just what you need. Made of the Connect Success Academy, Success Tips, and the Connect Blog, the Digital Success Academy is your essential tool for getting the most out of Connect.

  • Finance Prep Courses

    Do your students need a review of Accounting, Math, Excel, Statistics, or Economics? With the Finance Prep Courses, students will view a video to refresh them on these topics, and then answer questions to test their understanding. You can either assign as homework or include for optional practice. This product gives you more time in class to cover finance topics, and ensures that students do not get left behind.
