Key Features

  • LearnSmart


    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.

  • Connect Insight

    The first and only analytics tool of its kind, Connect Insight ™ is a series of visual data displays – each framed by an intuitive question – to provide at-a-glance information regarding class performance and assignment effectiveness.

  • General Ledger Problems

    General Ledger Problems, assignable in Connect Plus Accounting, enable students to see how transactions post from the general journal all the way through the financial statements. They provide a much-improved experience for students working with accounting cycle questions. Students’ work in the general journal is automatically posted to the ledger, navigation is much simpler, scrolling is no longer an issue, and students can easily link back to their original entries simply by clicking the ledger if edits are needed. Many questions now have critical thinking components added, to maximize students’ foundational knowledge of accounting concepts and principles.

More Features

  • Excel Simulations

    Simulated Excel questions, assignable within Connect Plus Accounting, allow students to practice their Excel skills, such as basic formulas and formatting, within the content of financial accounting. These questions feature animated, narrated Help and Show Me tutorials (when enabled), as well as automatic feedback and grading for both students and professors.

  • Interactive Illustrations

    Embedded links throughout the integrated Connect Plus Accounting ebook walk students step-by-step through the content of the most important illustrations in the chapters.

  • Intelligent Response Technology for Accounting

    Intelligent Response Technology is Connect Accounting’s new student interface for end-of-chapter assessment content. Intelligent Response Technology provides a general journal application that looks and feels more like what you would find in a general ledger software package, improves answer acceptance to reduce student frustration with formatting issues (such as rounding) and, for select questions, provides an expanded table that guides students through the process of solving the problem.

  • Interactive Presentations

    Interactive Presentations teach each chapter’s core learning objectives and concepts through an engaging, hands-on presentation, bringing the text content to life. Interactive Presentations harness the full power of technology to truly engage and appeal to all learning styles. Interactive Presentations are ideal in all class formats—online, face to-face or hybrid.

  • Guided Examples

    Guided Examples provide narrated and animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises.   This allows students to identify, review or reinforce the concepts and activities covered in class. Guided Examples provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance.

  • Simple LMS Integration

    All it takes is one click and Connect seamlessly integrates with every learning management system out there. Quickly access registration, attendance, assignments, grades and course resources in real time in one go-to location.

  • 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.
