Classroom to Career Resources: All aspects of the course and supporting resources were created to bridge the gap between the classroom and careers. “Career Center Resources” include career coaching videos, tools to create an e-portfolio, and job/internship search resources.
Adaptive Practice: Every student has a different starting point, and adaptive practice provides endless opportunities for practice to effectively prepare for class or quizzes and exams. Active retrieval of information with practice questions is proven to improve retention of information better than re-reading or reviewing the material, and students who use adaptive practice to prepare for exams do significantly better than those who do not. Students begin with a quick, section-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know.
