Likelihood to Recommend
Pearson Revel is probably best suited for distance learning of large sections where there is little time for discussion and grading assignments manually is prohibitive. I would prefer not to use it with small classes and traditional classes.
- Unfortunately, there are some videos that do not play, or situations where the video does not match the question content. These are bugs that should be attended to by Pearson, but although I have reported them (along with students), they have not been remedied.
- Instructors who would prefer to use only the digital text do not have the option to purchase the text without the platform.
- Because the text and software are integrated, there are no "page numbers" as in other digital texts which makes it hard to reference a particular section in a lecture, assignment, or presentation.

Pearson Revel does a great job of elevating a traditional reading experience for students. It allows them a comfortable space to practice and learns from their mistakes. Detailed reporting is available for both student and instructor. There are also lots of customization options for the instructor and assignment deployment.
I have used Pearson MyPsycLab in the past. I believe it was a better overall product than the REVEL system because the text and learning activities were separated, Students could view the text, then complete the activities. Overall, I think that both printed texts and systems like REVEL will be obsolete in the near future as content is readily available on the internet at no cost to the student.
