McGraw-Hill connect is being used as an educational training course to better understand accounting. The course is used to improve accounting skills and concepts across the entire organization. The business problems it addresses is improving efficiency by giving individuals access to an easily comprehensible training course.
  • McGraw-Hill Connect does a good job of being user-friendly and easy to understand. If you struggle with a concept the site will allow you to click right into the appropriate part of the text to read up on concepts.
  • In some circumstances, Connect allows the user to watch a walk-through video of some concepts in order to better understand why certain decisions are made.
  • Connect does a great job of giving feedback on incorrect responses and allows you to go back and see reports on previous assignments.
  • McGraw-Hill Connect could do a better job of staying current and making sure all of its videos and references to real-scenarios are up to date.
  • It can do a better job of immediate explanation or advice when an answer is incorrect.
  • It can improve upon its ability to autosave assignments. If an internet connection gets buggy and kicks the user out of the system, sometimes the assignment progress will be lost. This is because to save the assignment, it takes you out of the assignment and doesn't just autosave.
McGraw-Hill is best suited for scenarios in which the user needs a brief reminder or warm-up on certain concepts. It should not be used for learning the concept from the beginning as a text book or instructor would do that better. Use it for practice on concepts that have already been taught or learned.

McGraw-Hill Connect was used by a team of faculty teaching an introductory psychology class to approximately 1600 students. It was utilized by a small group within our department. It was supposed to allow us to use adaptive quizzing and other resources associated with the text book.
  • McGraw-Hill has very responsive customer support for students and faculty.
  • McGraw-Hill has a large number of resources available.
  • The program should integrate with your department's learning management system (LMS).
  • The integration with Blackboard was somewhat clunky and not very smooth.
  • The adaptive quizzing portion did not function fully when we adopted it, causing us massive issues with student grades.
I think McGraw-Hill Connect could be very useful for online and hybrid courses with large online components. The program allows students access to a large number of resources. In fully face-to-face courses it may not be as appropriate. I would also make sure to verify the complete successful functionality of the product before adopting it again.

I have only used McGraw-Hill Connect for this specific course and it works perfectly.
