RedShelf
RedShelf has been great in a higher ed environment to help connect students to textbook and publisher materials. It has helped make the process of purchasing/accessing those materials so much easier for students. I am at an institution now where we don't have RedShelf, and the faculty and students are regularly frustrated with this process, so I'll be looking to get us a license here soon. RedShelf is particularly useful if instructors are using various different types of materials from different publishers. However, if an institution was only using Cengage Unlimited for example (that is a service where students will just pay for access to that site and all the books/materials for all of their courses would be accessible on there), that would be a time where I would think RedShelf wouldn't provide you with as much benefit. That being said, we may be using RedShelf in a very specific manner, and it may be able to provide us more ability/features that we haven't taken full advantage of.

Rosetta Stone
While there are things that Rosetta Stone could do to help the teachers and district with providing educational data, I have seen a tremendous improvement in many beginning ELLs. This program has given them the confidence to move from silence in the classroom to be able to share their thoughts and demonstrate their grasp of the class material.

Cons
RedShelf
  • Waiting for a course management tool to streamline the process. It's in the works and a tall order since all clients approach the process differently.
  • A little bit of a stumble with a recent software rollout for day one access roll out, but at least it was intuitive to work through

Rosetta Stone
Rosetta Stone is a very comprehensive program with several different components. In truth after an initial orientation by a teacher, students (adults or school children) are able to use the software and navigate through its sections.

Rosetta Stone
There is no real accountability to learning since users can click the "show answers" button through the entire program--although I wouldn't recommend getting rid of the "show answers" button either because coming up with the verbatim expressions the program demands would be nearly impossible without being fed the answers.

Rosetta Stone
In the past, I have tried iReady, Edmentum, and others; however, Rosetta Stone has by and far provided the best success in my classroom with helping the newcomers and beginning English language learners. Most of the other programs did not start close enough to the basics for these students to be able to build the confidence they needed to gain success with the program.
