Exciting News About LearnSmart

McGraw-Hill LearnSmart is available to students as an independent study program!

Since its launch, we’ve heard from students each semester about how much they love LearnSmart. They agree that the engaging, effective, and personalized learning offered through LearnSmart is like no other study solution. As a result, there have been an increasing number of students asking for LearnSmart in their other courses where access has not been provided through Connect.

To heed this call, McGraw-Hill is thrilled to announce that students will now be able to purchase and use LearnSmart in over 40 courses. We’d like to invite you to be part of the adaptive learning revolution by visiting the new LearnSmart website and sharing the news with your students!

Virginia Tech Uses McGraw-Hill APR to Launch First Fully Online Human Anatomy & Physiology Course

Virginia Tech recently announced that it became the first four-year comprehensive university in Virginia to offer both the human anatomy and physiology lab and lecture delivered online during the 2011 summer sessions. According to the director of University Summer Sessions, students had expressed an interest in taking this course online since 2010. Faculty used McGraw Hill’s Anatomy and Physiology Revealed, which is currently available through Connect® Anatomy & Physiology, to deliver the course:

Gillian said she had a healthy dose of nerves while developing a deeply-rooted traditional course in the online environment. Being one of the first her peers to do so, she could not draw upon the experience of others. “Before starting the course, I was worried about all the potential problems that could arise in launching a new online class of such a large size. For the most part, everything went very smoothly.”

Gillian uses McGraw Hill’s Anatomy and Physiology Revealed software, which features an interactive cadaver dissection tool that students to peel back layers and as if they are part of a dissection.

“I feel like the students draw a lot out of the virtual dissections and come away with a good understanding of human anatomy and physiology,” she said.

LearnSmart – It’s Proven

The research shows that McGraw-Hill LearnSmart™ works. In a study involving almost 700 students from 6 institutions, students experienced higher success rates with LearnSmart.

Final analysis shows when LearnSmart is assigned more B students earn A’s and more C students get B’s.

The distribution shows the aggregate of letter grades assigned by instructors. A Chi Square test was performed to determine if final course grades were distributed differently across the two groups (control and experimental). The test indicated a significant difference, Χ2 (4) = 11.667, p = .020 (an alpha level of .05 was adopted for this statistical test).
