October Release and Enhancements

We will be releasing several key usability improvements along with key features in several course areas this coming Saturday, October 22nd. We want to thank everyone in the Connect community for your suggestions and helpful feedback as we work to make Connect even better. Check out just a few of the highlights below!





At-Risk Student Report (Pilot)
Instructors and institutions have an easy way to improve student retention. Quickly find and help the students who need you most. The report will identify at-risk students and help you reach out to them to request a meeting during office hours, provide words of encouragement and get them re-engaged.






Section Switcher
An easier way to navigate your course. With the improved section-switcher, getting between your MWF and TuTh sections is a breeze. Just click “switch section” and you will see a list of all the sections in your course. Select the one you want, and you’re there.












And/Or Filter
See all of the content available to you, in any combination. We’ve updated the filtering in Connect so that you never have to choose between options like question type or learning objective again. Narrow the field by selecting your favorite filtering options and assign your homework knowing you’ve picked the very best content for your class and your goals.






We have helped clarify some of the key policies so that you get exactly what you want for your students each time you create an assignment.

Introducing McGraw-Hill’s Read It Forward


We want to give students the opportunity to save money and make a difference at the same time! That’s why we’ve developed Read It Forward.


It’s simple – for each McGraw-Hill eBook that a student purchases from CourseSmart, we will donate one physical book to a child through First Book, a nonprofit organization that provides access to new books for children in need.  Your students save by choosing an affordable option for their course content, and they have a positive impact on the environment and children’s literacy at the same time.


Visit www.mhreaditforward.com for more information, and to take advantage of this new, exciting program!

Lecture Capture: Making Instructors Even More Effective


McGraw-Hill Tegrity Campus, the lecture capture technology available within Connect, is making a significant impact at campuses across the country!


Since implementing Tegrity, Vermont College reports substantial benefits: “Students have embraced it. Grades have gone up. Students are not skipping classes as many people feared. And as Tegrity becomes more widespread, students are demanding it.”


Laramie County Community College has saved about $40,000 on each course that uses Tegrity to proctor exams!


Not only that, but Tegrity continues to offer new functionality to enhance the learning experience for students, including a new interactive note taking feature called “Tegrity Notes,” automated closed captioning, extended search capabilities and the introduction of an Android app for accessing recorded lectures on-the-go.


Learn more about Tegrity, a feature of McGraw-Hill Connect.
