It is only being used in College Algebra. Not because other courses couldn't use it, but it's hard to get people to agree on one curriculum.
  • student individualized instruction and assessment
  • teacher ease of deployment
  • Excellent Analytics
  • wider deployment
  • better advertising
  • better job of showing how they are different than other LMS's
When students struggle, it is often difficult for the instructor to determine What they don't understand and HOW to help them succeed. The individualized instruction, immediate feedback, and adaptive learning all combine to help students succeed.

We use WileyPlus for many different accounting classes in the business department. It is an intuitive online platform that includes the student's books, interactive tutorials, homework, videos, CPA exam preparation questions, etc. It integrates well with our LMS but also has an excellent standalone login. Their customer support for both instructors and students is responsive and takes the burden off the instructor to figure out why something won't work.
  • CPA Exam Review - Accounting students see they are learning, it's on the CPA exam!
  • Interactive Tutorials: Caters to different learning styles
  • Video Homework Solution Walkthroughs
  • Not being able to edit their question sets (preset homework) for late policies, etc.
It is well suited for students who have access to the internet and technology. During the pandemic some students home internet hasn't been great and they can't use it. That isn't a fault of WileyPlus, just an unfortunate reality of our current situation. It is well suited to online classes though with many resources for students to learn on their own and for instructors to assign.

It is being used in all sections of our Accounting for Managers, Principles of Financial Accounting, Principles of Managerial Accounting, and Intermediate Accounting I & II. We use it to help students learn the content, complete homework, quizzing, and exams (not used in all sections for exams.)
  • Provides excellent study resources for students.
  • Provides effective ways for faculty to assign assessments of various levels to students.
  • Provides agile customer support.
  • Provide the students with a print option within assignments.

All sections of our course Stat 200 rely on WileyPLUS embedded in Canvas for our eTextbook, practice problems, graded homework assignments, and adaptive practice.
  • eTextbook is accommodating and has interactive features to benefit learning.
  • Policies control on assignments is exactly what we want to control.
  • Adaptive Practice allows students to have content issues identified and remedied effectively.
  • After attending the most recent training update for improvements on their way, all the areas I was looking for improvement on have been addressed.
This is difficult to assess because it is based on textbook availability. If your textbook is available in WileyPLUS, then I'd give a green light if all the features are available with that textbook. Otherwise yellow with caution.

WileyPLUS is used for online teaching, homework, and assessment in the School of Business in multiple courses. Students purchase the product and instructors design the assignments, quizzes, and exams. A course eBook is also included when students purchase WileyPLUS, which often saves students a lot of money, as they don't have to purchase a text separately. WileyPLUS is also used in other departments and schools within the university. It comes with a huge question bank for homework and exams. It also has a very strong adaptive practice tool, which provides individual student-focused "drilling" and assessment. Of course it has a grade book too.
  • Online homework
  • Enabling adaptive learning
  • Online assessment
  • eBook
  • Summarized grading
  • More full integration into university LMS
  • More algorithmic questions
  • Elimination of some elements of Canvas that are not needed
WileyPLUS is paired with a textbook in all cases I know. In the cases where I have seen the pairing, WileyPLUS works splendidly. If your chosen text does not come with the product, then Wiley does not see a "fit" or it is yet to come. I have not seen a text yet in my field of instruction where WileyPLUS is not a great companion. I teach in an area where weekly homework and frequent assessment is common and can be easily machine graded. Courses where essay or composition questions dominate homework or assessment would not necessarily be a great fit for WileyPLUS.

I am currently using WileyPLUS in my Thermodynamics class and am considering using it for my Materials Science class in the future. I like WileyPLUS because I can easily create and modify assignments, or use suggested assignments from Wiley. I can also embed additional resources from the e-text and supporting documents such as video examples, animations, and more directly into my LMS for easy student access.
  • Randomized number for all problems to prevent students from copying each others work
  • Ease of integration into LMS (Canvas)
  • Competitive pricing
  • Automatic grading
  • Simplifies focus for students (removes less applicable content)
  • Great customer service
  • Easily customizable grading (number of attempts, point deductions, hints and solutions available to students).
  • My text (Moran 9e Fundamentals of Thermodynamics) doesn't have adaptive practice
  • I'd like to be able to add my own questions to the question sets occasionally
I think the adaptive practice really puts the platform over the top. If my text had that, or the text I was recommending had adaptive practice, I'd recommend it 10/10 times! It's still very useful and I'm enjoying the platform, but that has been the more significant downside so far.

It is used in the Accounting Department for Intermediate I and II and for Advanced Accounting Issues. It is a great product for teaching students accounting.
  • Keeps up to date with accounting changes.
  • Is an outstanding online learning format that blends with university LMS.
  • Auto grades homework saving faculty time for dealing with students.
  • Provides amazing resources/tools for students to improve their skills.
  • Very few areas - Would like more questions in question banks.
  • Videos/power points need some work to broaden topics.
  • Have presenters of videos/ power points be familiar with the subject.
  • Grade book needs to allow faculty a tool to select what items it the grade book.
  • Remove course administrator due to the ability to copy class to other faculty.
I would rate it as a 10 - I have looked at other resources in the market and WileyPLUS provides far more features that benefit both faculty and students. The resources to assist students are varied and of different types which is beneficial for students.

WileyPLUS is being used in the Department of Chemistry for our Organic Chemistry courses. WileyPLUS helps us engage our students and prepare them for high-stakes testing.
  • WileyPLUS is a great engagement tool for our students.
  • WileyPLUS helps students practice questions that are very similar to exam questions.
  • WileyPLUS helps students develop the skills necessary to succeed in Organic Chemistry.
  • WileyPLUS's interface is a little dated but their new platform which is coming in Fall 2021 is a modern and sleek interface.
  • It will take you a semester or two to figure out what works best for your students but that is true of any online homework program.
  • WileyPLUS can be daunting to start, but their support is great and helps you get through the starting pains.
WileyPLUS is great at providing multiple ways to assess students, pre-lecture, post-lecture, multi-chapter. The flexibility is amazing.
They provide multiple levels of support, including 24/7 chat support.

I am currently using WileyPLUS primarily for teaching purposes. I usually use it to assign daily and chapter assignments for students to apply the concepts they have learned in the class. Students can also access their e-Text and also do some practices through Orion.
  • Wiley Support
  • Innovative Format for Assignments
  • Easy Use for both Teachers and Students
  • Easy LMS Integration
  • Customization of some problems and questions
  • More Questions not on the book
  • Sync the dates between WileyPlus and LMS
WileyPLUS is really a good tool to use to assign assignments to students. It provides student quick evaluation of their work. In addition, students can use WileyPLUS for practices.

It is used as an ancillary for our Intro Accounting classes.
  • Frequent updates.
  • Excellent support.
  • Helpful outside of WileyPLUS- teaching methods, contacts with other professors, [etc.]
  • 24/7 help.
  • Ability to make changes in WileyPLUS quicker. Too many clicks [required] to accomplish some tasks.
  • More videos for chapters.
Very good for intro classes. It helps get the students off to a good start. It provides students with the help they need to be successful in the class.
They are accessible any time and they have the answers I need.

I use WileyPLUS in my Accounting courses - Financial and Managerial Accounting.
  • Provides a great platform for students to learn about Accounting.
  • Real world scenarios.
  • Great resources for students- videos, practice exercises, quizzes, flash cards, interactive tutorials.
  • Easy to read, navigate.
  • Great technical support.
  • None - they are constantly improving and adapting.
Great resource to teach Accounting to both traditional and non-traditional students.
Ample opportunity to assign different kinds of assignments which enable students to practice.
Very good videos that explain accounting concepts, applications in the real world, and case scenarios.
Easy to read e-textbook, and good examples to illustrate important concepts.

This is used currently only in my classes. It is used for my science classes to help with the retention of material. It is an educational program. It works really well when used after lectures or notes. Other similar programs are used, but this is only relevant to my classes.
  • Test banks.
  • Videos.
  • Adaptive practice.
  • Questions for practice.
  • Hard to understand.
  • Clunky to get started.
Very well suited for the science and math classroom as it uses additional practice. The additional practice helps students learn the material and apply it to differing scenarios. It also keeps all of their formative work in one area that students have the ability to access later on before tests or quizzes.

We are using WileyPLUS integrated into Blackboard for several of our science classes, no matter who is teaching it. Some assignments are required for consistency, and others are optional for each instructor to add as they wish. The Adaptive Practice assignments are used as formative learning for all sections. It has been a valuable learning tool for student success.
  • Great instructor support and training.
  • Seek instructor feedback and input and keep implementing new updates.
  • Adaptive Practice definitely helps student success and brings consistency across multiple sections, often taught by new part-time instructors.
  • Integration into LMS has made the experience seamless for students and added the ease of automatic input in to the LMS gradebook.
  • Over the years Wiley has had multiple platforms at one time, but that is changing to one common platform this coming year, which will solve some confusion when initially getting students enrolled in their sections.
  • WileyPLUS does add some cost to product for students, but students do have option if they want to use only the code and not purchase print book and unless they are on financial aid and have to purchase through school bookstore with their markup, they could purchase directly from Wiley after 14-day free trial at lower cost.
  • Transitioning between changing platforms does take some time to adjust, but the support is there in so many forms - assigned support staff, 24-hour email for instructors, chat for students, lots of video tutorials, etc.
It is great if you are only one teaching class or if you are course coordinator and can require it across all sections. Could be some push-back if different instructors in same course and some use it and others don't because of additional cost. Need to make sure at least some assignments are required so students feel they are getting their money's worth.

WileyPLUS is currently used in my department as a source of course material and also for assessment. It has helped with the uniformity across sections taught by different instructors and with the current situation of teaching remote, it has been useful for testing students.
  • Quality of the content it provides for our students.
  • Quick customer service response.
  • Easy to use platform and easy to integrate into LMS being used.
  • Difficulty of end of chapter problems.
  • Removing solutions for problems from the web.
WileyPLUS is suited for an online course offering. It has all the capabilities needed for an online course—quality and detailed content, short videos based on content, and video illustrations, and problem-solving techniques (chalkboard problems). Finally, it also gives an instructor the flexibility to add/remove materials one does not require for a particular course.

I have used WileyPLUS as an online tool to help my students practice the concepts that are taught in class. I especially like that they are continuously adapting and evolving. They take their users input into consideration as they bring out new versions of WileyPLUS. My students love the videos that are accessible via Orion. I have been a WileyPLUS user for a few years now.
  • Their videos
  • The range of questions per learning objective
  • The layout
  • Integration could be a little challenging at times
  • More quantitative examples-excel based questions. This is just for the book that I use so it should not be considered a missing functionality.
  • More algorithmic questions. This is just for the book that I use so it should not be considered a missing functionality.
It is well suited for a host of accounting courses but not as much for capstone courses. The capstone courses require in-depth analysis of cases so its a lot more descriptive. I don't use WileyPLUS for courses that are heavy on case studies.

WileyPLUS is an e-learning platform utilized by several disciplines both online and traditionally. It is used in combination with our LMS to deliver high-quality, varied instructional materials to higher education students.
  • It innovates. WileyPLUS is not a stagnant platform. There are updates and new tools/ideas all the time.
  • It supports students and instructors. Too often third-party platforms are challenging because student and instructor support are non-existent. WileyPLUS does a good job supporting students and instructors, and they are very good at creating community among users.
  • Some of the processes for integrating the product with learning management systems are confusing and complicated.
WileyPLUS has authentic and well-developed content in the field of accounting. Gradable Excel, unique exercises, and lots of support and practice opportunities.

WileyPLUS is being used for students as part of an accounting course. We use WileyPLUS for assessments, providing students with practice questions, and to enhance the learning experience.
  • Responsive Service Team
  • Flexible platform
  • Integration with platforms
  • Continuing to add to test bank
  • Continuing to add Excel-based questions
  • Continuing to add more algorithmic questions
WileyPLUS is well suited for courses where there is a desire to supplement the learning experience with great features. I can’t think of many scenarios from an educational perspective where WileyPLUS would be less appropriate.

I use it in the various computer science courses as a tool for adaptive learning. It's been a fantastic tool so far and well worth exploring further as they take faculty input and add it to their platform. It helps build content and courses a lot more efficiently than depending on faculty to build them out themselves.
  • Quick to adopt.
  • Takes input from customers.
  • Great training and planning features.
  • The tools are external to the learning management system.
  • It can take time for students to learn how to use it.
For any course that has a WileyPLUS counterpart especially in online education, it's well worth exploring further. It's easily one of the best tools when comparing similar options from other publishers.

We use WileyPlus in a three-course sequence of math classes for preservice math teachers. The classes focus on content and pedagogical practices. We have used WileyPlus for 7.5 years with great success. The product is integrated with our Learning Management System, making use easy for students and instructors. WileyPlus's support team is amazing!
  • Customer service.
  • LMS integration.
  • Multi-media resources.
  • User-friendly.
  • Day one access.
  • Student ambassadors/partners.
  • Adaptive practice is not available for my title.
If you are looking for course materials that include homework, tests, projects, discussion prompt, readings, instructional videos, and more than WileyPlus is for you. WileyPlus can be integrated with your learning management system. WileyPlus is user friendly. It can be set up for day one access. WileyPlus will train and pay one of your students to assist your students in getting started with WileyPlus. Their customer service is excellent!
24-7 support is available by phone, chat, or email. They also hold annual events which I have been blessed to attend twice. The staff is excellent. They are knowledgeable and genuinely care about you and your students. There are online forums for instructors to collaborate, learn, and have fun. Instructors receive gift cards for their participation too!

I am one of the few to use WileyPLUS at my organization. I teach statistics for engineering majors. They like the immediate feedback they get from the online homework problems. I rarely (never?) have anyone say they've had difficulty accessing WileyPLUS. It is very reliable and easy for students to use.
From a teacher's perspective, it is also easy to use. The available problem sets make it easy to get just the right problem to help students master the needed skills.
  • Detailed help on how to solve questions
  • Instant feedback!
  • Lots of questions to choose from
  • Creating my own algorithmic questions
WileyPLUS is good for teaching any available subject. The instant feedback to the student, available tools to help them learn the skills they need to know, and an excellent pre-made question pool are huge plusses.

It is less appropriate for subjects requiring lots of open-ended responses or essay-type answers. I think those would be better handled directly from the LMS.
I rarely have problems, but got quick fixes when I've contacted them.
