MindTap Webinar

  1. 1. Introducing: <br />the Personal Learning Experience<br />EARLY ADOPTER PROGRAM OVERVIEW<br />May 4, 2011<br />
  2. 2. Today’s Landscape<br />From what’s out there today:<br />at best, eBook replicas of the print experience <br />lots of disparate, loosely integrated digital content solutions<br />fast emerging demand to learn on multiple devices<br />pent up demand to personalize digital content <br />From 2010 Cengage/Eduventures Study:<br />58% of instructors believe technology in courses positively impacts student engagement. <br />In addition, 71% of instructors that rated student engagement levels as “high” report using technology as the basis of their instruction.<br />Instructors that rated engagement as “high” also saw a greater benefit to learning outcomes.<br />
  3. 3. What is MindTap?<br />Personal Learning Experience<br />Not just an eBook, Homework, Assessment, Resource Supplement or LMS solution<br />Delivery Platform, Products driving engagement and outcomes based learning, AND Services<br />Built on a powerful and extensible MindApps framework of Apps<br />MindTap Reader is included in all current Cengage products to drive a more enhanced eReader experience while setting the stage for a more comprehensive MindTap future<br />
  4. 4. How Does it Work?<br />Cloud-based technology allowing you and your students to access from anywhere, on any device<br />Integrates into your LMS<br />Mixes all your assets into one experience – narrative, multimedia, activities, assessments, etc.<br />Can be personalized through:<br />Personal annotations also aggregated in a notebook <br />Turning apps on/off to enable/disable capabilities<br />Changing sequence of learning path units and activities<br />Embedding your own content (text, video, PowerPoint, lecture captures, etc.)<br />
  5. 5. Why Did We Create It?<br />Research shows technology leads to better outcomes<br />Research shows that “students prefer print” because the “right” digital solution does not exist yet<br />Requests by educators to be able to make digital content more personal and extensible have been largely unsatisfied<br />Efforts to date from content/technology companies have been too restrictive and offer too many non-integrated elements<br />
  6. 6. What Makes it Different?<br />It’s all about choice – your choice, not ours:<br />We do not focus on or require a single LMS, or any LMS<br />We do not require you or your students to purchase a specific device<br />It’s modular, so you add what you need, not what we think you need<br />It can be personalized, allowing you to set the sequence and activities to best adapt to your curriculum<br />
  7. 7. Has MindTap Been Tested?<br />In the past year, a number of research models have been applied to testing the concept, interface, efficacy, services, etc.<br />The vast majority of instructors and students noted never seeing anything like it.<br />Nine schools are currently using it in a classroom setting, and feedback initially has been exceedingly positive.<br />
  8. 8. What’s the Early Adopter Program?<br />We want instructors that will take full advantage of the power of this Personal Learning Experience<br />Schools need to be: <br />Bellwether institutions that believe in the power of technology in education<br />Open to using digital resources as their PRIMARY source of content delivery<br />Willing to take advantage of the included services to ensure maximum efficacy<br />Willing to provide feedback<br />
  9. 9. Why Should I be in the Program?<br />Agree to use MindTap in your Fall 2011 course<br />Your students receive a 50% scholarship for use in the first term<br />Requires feedback and other participation<br />The program is effective and easy to use<br />
