Well first you have to have a textbook match, they have a pretty good library but I can only vouch for business and law courses. It can be very helpful for online students in remote areas who may have trouble getting a hold of the hardcopy textbook and as noted the mobile app/study features are a huge hit with PT students. On the Instructional Design side, it can also be helpful to a Blackboard/HTML novice who either isn't comfortable building content within the LMS or doesn't have the time required to build out a full course.

It's hard to imagine not renewing it as the professors would not want to go back to the way their courses were previously populated.The only thing that would cause us to change would be in the textbook changed and the new company offered a better tool

Alternatives Considered

MindTap

MindTap doesn't stand a chance against McGraw Hill Connect, Pearson Revel, or WileyPLUS. All three of these competitors offer an adaptive technology within their platform so that each individual students has a unique learning path based on their foundational skills and comprehension. After reviewing the competition, we stopped using Mindtap and switched to Connect.

Return on Investment

MindTap

  • It saves the designer and faculty member a lot of time with course setup - especially in maintaining robust question banks for exams from semester to semester.
  • The pop-up issue often taxes our IT Help desk, especially early in the semester.
  • From a student POV - their pricing model has a very friendly 'try before you buy' model. I believe it is two weeks of free access before they have to choose to subscribe or go with the hard copy version on the textbook.
  • Because of the auto-grading features our faculty and TA's are freed up to focus more on students that may be struggling.
