Key Features

  • 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.

    Intuitive Design

    Works with the way you teach and the way your students think and learn

    With Connect’s easy-to-use interface nothing stands in the way of your instruction or your students learning. We took what we learned from our partnerships with instructors and students and combined it with feedback from thousands of conversations and ethnographic research on college campuses nationwide. The result: a user-focused tool that fully engages students and solves real-world teaching challenges.

    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.

  • 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.

Case Study

I had students who were consistently scoring in the low 60's on each of the weekly quizzes. Once I started assigning homework through Connect Anatomy & Physiology, those same students started earning scores in the high 70's! On average, my students' performance has risen by 10-15%. I believe Connect is changing the way educational materials are being delivered. Connect is providing a platform for instructors to administer powerful assessments requiring higher ordered thinking with the luxury of having them autograde. That luxury allows more time for developing meaningful lessons. In addition, the Reports feature provides instructors with a staggering amount of information to assist them in helping their students, in modifying their lectures and exams and in preparing for reaccreditation.
