Deepening Connections to Inspire Successful Learning Environments

It’s clear today that we’re more densely networked than ever before, but less evident is the value of these connections. When our pool of contacts is wide but shallow, what is it really worth? At the heart of our mission at McGraw-Hill Education is the drive to deepen the connection between instructor, student, and institution. We’re convinced that a comprehensive understanding of student behavior ignites learning experiences that fuel success and inspiration.

But how can we nurture these connections?

Enter Connect Insight.

For some time, we’ve had access to reams of data on each student, but without analysis that data has little use. Connect Insight is the first-of-its-kind analytics tool that distills clear answers to these 5 questions and delivers them to instructors in at-a-glance snapshots:

  1. How are my students performing?
  2. How is this particular student performing?
  3. How is my section performing?
  4. How effective are my assignments?
  5. How effective is this particular assignment?


The focus is on utility: Connect Insight makes razor-sharp tie-ins between the analysis it provides and the decisions instructors make.

We pride ourselves on providing sophisticated technology that is intuitive and simple. Our elegant navigation allows professors to focus on what’s important: powering motivation within their classes.

John Wilson—President of Morehouse College and a former Obama administration staffer—has stated that armed with the right data, Teacher is thrust into the role of Advisor, more effectively propelling students toward success. I’m honored to be helping construct environments that are ripe for inspiration. McGraw-Hill Education is committed to providing tools that enable instructors to become more involved and engaged in student performance which, ultimately, fosters greater achievement for their students.
