MindTap

What is MindTap?

MindTap is a personalized teaching experience with assignments that guide students to analyze, apply, and improve thinking, allowing you to measure skills and outcomes with ease. Built upon authoritative Milady content, MindTap guides students through a single learning path where they interact with learning tools —readings, multimedia, activities and assessments—in a READ, WATCH and DO format. Instructors can personalize the experience by customizing Milady content or by adding their own content directly into the Learning Path, delivering a seamless student experience that aligns exactly with the curriculum being taught in the classroom.

MindTap Learning Path

The Learning Path guides students through the curriculum and is where they will spend the bulk of their time, viewing and interacting with the content in a variety of ways. It truly is an experience that lends itself to all different types of learning styles. Instructors can utilize the existing components of the Learning Path “as is” or they easily customize what their student has access to providing a One-of-a-Kind experience for their school(s).

MindTap Social Media/Message Board

MindTap provides a Social Media experience for students via an integrated Message Board. The ConnectYard feature allows for instructors to interact with students, and students to interact with each other, by posting discussion threads throughout the course and communicating with one another on various topics. The environment provides the best of both worlds, as it appeals to today’s student and their needs, while offering a controlled environment of sharing within the school/class only, eliminating the unnecessary existence of anyone outside of the school viewing comments on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
