GIVE YOUR STUDENTS AN EDGE!
We know the college experience can be very demanding for your students. They are making decisions every day about what to study, how to study, and what tools to use to succeed. However, not all students understand the importance of the course materials that you selected and are electing not to purchase anything. As a result, their course preparedness and grades are suffering.You can change that!
Students look to you for information and guidance on what tools will help them succeed in the course. To help you communicate the importance of these materials, we have created a suite of tools for your use in the first days of class. These tools should help you communicate the value of learning, the importance of your course materials, and in turn, enhance student’s classroom experience and performance.
