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.

McGraw-Hill Connect Boosts Student Performance at State College of Florida!

Professor Cheri Kittrell was looking for a digital solution that would help reinforce course concepts without adding to her grading workload. She began using Connect® Psychology in Fall 2009, anticipating that it would provide interactive content designed for diverse learning styles, yet still be user-friendly enough not to intimidate students who had little experience with technology. She is seeing exactly the results she expected, as well as meeting her initial goals of reinforcing concepts for students. Read this CASE STUDY to learn more about how Connect has increased student grades, and improved Professor Kittrell’s ability to spend more valuable time with students.



Professor Kittrell reports that she has seen steady, measurable improvement in student grades from semester to semester using Connect Psychology. “Students love Connect. They always say that it is easy to use, that they love the content, and that it is improving their test grades.”

McGraw-Hill Connect Increases Student Performance and Engagement at San Diego State University!

Professor Lois Bitner Olson had been using a course management system to assign exercises that supported her lectures, but she was frustrated by the amount of time she was spending writing assignments and solving technical problems. She needed a solution that would help students learn to apply the marketing concepts she was teaching, and free her of time spent on solving technical glitches. Connect® Marketing not only addressed both of these needs, but also increased student final average grades by 5-7 points. Learn more about Professor Olson’s experience with Connect in this CASE STUDY.



Professor Olson says, “Connect has made my life easier and my students are doing better. They walk away knowing the concepts, not just learning them for the test. The Connect online exercises, drag and drop, video cases, etc. do a pretty good job of getting students to learn how to apply concepts. That was what first attracted me.”
