As you probably can relate to, I am struggling with students to read the chapters. WileyPLUS has helped me a lot in getting closer to my goal of getting students to read the assigned chapters by making WileyPLUS’ adaptive practices part of the grade. The adaptive practices WileyPLUS developed are unique and set themselves apart from other publishers. If students try to attempt to complete the questions found in adaptive practices without reading the corresponding chapters, they will have a hard time receiving the full credit. A student who is well prepared when starting the adaptive practices will be able to identify the concepts they are still struggling with and which concepts they have mastered. In contrast, a student who is struggling with a particular concept may be prompted to review and answer questions related to earlier concepts relevant to the current concepts. For example, a student struggling with the physiological changes related to stress may be prompted to review concepts first introduced in the biology chapter to ensure that they have mastered the concept.
  • Engage students with materials.
  • Help students review.
  • Help students practice the material.
  • I really can't think of anything.
  • Make WileyPLUS compatible with Safari.
It works great for asynchronous online courses and synchronous face-to-face courses. There really isn't a scenario where it is less suited for.

We use it for our accounting classes. It intergrades well with Canvas. They have quality content and are relevant to meet our teaching needs. Several of their textbooks has a data analytics component which is very helpful.
  • Quality content - the materials were developed by faculty who have lots of experience in the field. Several of their textbooks have a data analytics component which is very helpful for our students.
  • Great customer support - representatives from Wiley are very good at returning emails and they are very attentive to any needs that we have for their products.
  • Good value - I believe their textbooks along with their learning supplements provide very good value for faculty and our students.
  • I have compared them with other publishers and I can't think of any at the moment. Other publishers may have several titles for the same subject as Wiley, which provides more options for instructors to pick from, but I personally don't think it's an issue.
It's a good platform that has some very good content. We use Canvas as our learning management platform. It is nice to be able to integrate some of the pre-build WileyPLUS course modules into our Canvas course. Other publishers are good too and they sync with Canvas, but I find Wiley's Canvas modules easy to use and customize.

WileyPLUS is our homework and material platform for intermediate accounting students. Students enroll in this platform, and their homework is administered there. The platform also includes direct links to an e-textbook that corresponds to the topic.
  • Provides students with e-textbook access.
  • Provides professors with a platform to administer assignments (up to, and including, exams)
  • Grades assignments automatically.
  • Provides links by topic to extra resources (even at 2 am!)
  • Pre-designed assignments are too long and difficult to edit.
  • Algorithmic assignments continue for too many problems.
The Wiley Intermediate Textbook is the best in the industry. Pairing it with WileyPLUS is a "no-brainer".

WileyPlus is a great learning management system that allows students to access all of their textbook materials in one place. Students can explore chapters in the LMS and find educational materials that will better help them learn the material and develop proficiency in areas where they may have weaknesses. WileyPlus contains an e-textbook, adaptive practice materials and guided practice materials, as well as a wealth of other resources that students can use. Whatever a student might need, it can be found in WileyPlus.
  • Excellent e-textbook.
  • Adaptive practice with learning paths customized for each student.
  • Videos, updates, lots of exercises.
  • Would like to see a feature that makes it easy to switch from one edition of a textbook to an updated edition of that same textbook.
It is a great tool for all types of educational settings.

We use WileyPLUS for some of our courses. Students use WileyPLUS for their homework assignments and to prepare for their exams.
  • WileyPLUS provides excellent Power Point Slides.
  • They provide up-to-date learning materials.
  • They have very supportive customer service team.
  • They could provide simplified steps to set up a homework assignment.
  • The selections of different features could be displayed on the same webpage with different tabs.
  • Overall, WileyPLUS has done a wonderful job and I enjoy using it.
With the help of WileyPLUS, instructors can prepare the teaching efficiently using pre-build Power Point Slides and solutions, and set up homework assignment and exams from abundant resources. Students can also have interactive learning by using adaptive practices. Wiley also provides up-to-date materials and problem-solving videos for students to learn effectively.

I use WileyPLUS in my Introduction to Psychology Course. It has some incredible and unique features that help students achieve academic success in today's online learning environment. For example, auto-graded assignments where students get immediate feedback, the Orion Adaptive Practice allows students to practice based on their individual needs, and it integrates nicely into Canvas which I use extensively for teaching.
  • Allows educators to tailor the products to their curriculum
  • Is accessible to all students regardless of learning styles
  • Allows you to monitor student progress so you can catch struggling students early
  • Would like more hands on activities and/or labs that students could use in the course
  • Make it easier to grade some of the homework. It doesn't always catch small details that are missing
It is great for scenarios where you have a diverse group of students. In my case, I teach high school students, traditional college students, and non-traditional students. It's nice that it fits a broad spectrum of students. Also, it does well meeting the needs of students with most disabilities. It is probably less appropriate for instructors that don't use Canvas or other learning management tools for teaching, or those teachers who are not flexible and/or care about their student's success.

We use many WileyPLUS textbooks for our undergraduate and graduate-level courses. They have many options in textbooks. They really care about students and instructors. Their sales and technical support are excellent. They provide many useful materials (e.g., PowerPoint slides, animations, solution manuals) for instructors. They keep updating the materials up to date.

  • Some errors in homework problems and their solutions

I use WileyPLUS as the E-text for my accounting classes. Students also utilize additional resources and complete problem sets/exams on the site. This creates a great alternative to classroom lectures and paper assignment submissions for the online environment. I have used the online version of WileyPLUS for many years, and each version becomes more user-friendly.
  • Grading
  • Providing information
  • Providing exams
WileyPLUS is well designed and has solid content. Students in a fully online environment will benefit from utilizing this software. I also think it would still be useful in a hybrid or traditional classroom environment although I have not used it in that setting. The immediate feedback and grading would still be useful for students in more traditional learning environments.

I utilize WileyPLUS for my personal finance courses at FHSU. Students love the easy-to-use platform and the affordability of the product. I love the fact that it is auto-graded, algorithmic, easy to adapt, and comes with multiple different resources for students and faculty. The customer support and tech support are phenomenal.
  • Student resources
  • Faculty resources
  • Customer support
  • Tech support
  • Affordability
  • Could use a more thorough ongoing case study that is in WileyPLUS platform for assessment. Currently has one, but would appreciate a more detailed comprehensive case.
I love WileyPLUS for educational purposes. It is appropriate for courses that require regular assessment for each chapter that include calculations and the need for algorithmic problems.

I use WileyPLUS in my mathematics course. It provides a cost-effective e book and enables immediate feedback on assignments. I have been using it for 6 semesters, with each class having approximately 40 students.
  • Easy to install.
  • Great customer support.
  • I like their weekly tips: it would be nice to have a library of them.
It is extremely useful for freshmen classes.

WileyPLUS is the online book and homework system for my course. I have been very happy with the integration with canvas which saves time and keeps grades automatically updated. The e-text displays through VitalSource so students can highlight and make flashcards out of the text. There are supportive topical videos, interactives, and multimedia support for course topics. I teach organic chemistry, so I really appreciate the mechanism and synthesis explorer questions that can be pooled! They make improvements often and are responsive to feedback. They have adaptive assignments that you can define by the sections of text covered (content-adaptive). There are a few errors in the homework questions and some questions are too broad leaving students guessing what format they should use for the answer. I would recommend WileyPLUS!
  • Customer service! Whenever I have trouble, they are quick to help!
  • The conversational tone of the text is easily understood by students and the drawings/visuals are excellent!
  • Integration with canvas makes grading the online homework effortless!
  • There are a few errors in the homework answers.
  • Some questions could be worded better to help students better match the formatting expectations when they change throughout the chapter.
  • The offline PDF of the text should always be included in any online package.
I have 450 students, so I couldn't grade homework for that many students and give feedback if that is all I did all day! It is great for large courses and encourages interaction with the material! The integration with canvas is essential for extra-large courses - I would never go back now! Really, whether you have 20 or 450 it gives students an opportunity to work through the material with fast feedback which aids in learning the material.

I'm very grateful for the quality of WileyPLUS products, the number and variety of resources available to incorporate in my courses, and their support of my students' learning. The team is responsive and supportive. Solid academic resources.
  • The auto-grader is reliable.
  • Variety of learning activities (videos, tutorials, references, textbook, and assessments).
  • The challenge level of analytic and excel assignments that are integrated with the course material should be higher.
I use WileyPLUS in the University courses in Foundational Accounting. My colleagues use it for more advanced Accounting courses.

I love WileyPlus! WileyPlus saves me time each and every semester. I do not have to generate assignments from scratch and students get customized, tailored assessments each and every time. One of my favourite parts of WileyPLUS is the adaptive practice assignments, which tailor themselves depending on students' responses.
  • Tailored assessments.
  • Auto-graded exams.
  • Some questions may be hard to view on the screen.
I used WileyPLUS this last semester for all of my accounting classes. It did a good job in allowing me to offer assignments to my 150 students with ease.

WileyPLUS has always been a great support for our course - helping us to customize our lab manual for the A&P course. Any time a problem cropped up - they were right there to help us through it. The materials in WileyPlus are a great help to the students' learning in a heavy content course. The WileyPLUS courses are easy to use and provide so many resources - they make the course easier to teach.
  • customer support - quick and easy
  • lots of resources available
  • reasonable pricing

We use WileyPLUS as an online tool in our anatomy and physiology lecture courses. It allows our students to have access to the electronic text and published assignments through our LMS.
  • The electronic text is incorporated into WileyPLUS. This is a great resource as it allows students access on multiple devices. It can also be printed and downloaded for offline use.
  • Adaptive assignments offer students the opportunity to assess themselves without the pressure of a high-stakes activity.
  • Easily integrates into the Canvas LMS.
  • The customization of adaptive assignments.
  • Manipulation of assignment due dates within the system.
  • Gradebook synchronization could be improved.
WileyPLUS has been well suited to help my students assess their understanding of concepts in my course. I appreciate that the system adapts to each student's strengths and weaknesses. The new A.I. that drives the adaptive assignments is a tremendous improvement over the previous versions.

I use WileyPLUS in my classroom. It is a great tool for helping students learn and retain important information. I would highly recommend it to other instructors. WileyPLUS is also very versatile and can be used and adapted in a variety of situations. I have used the product for a few years now, and I plan to continue using it in the future!
  • Great question banks
  • Good organization
  • Good user support
  • Reduce bugs
  • Faster response times to user requests
  • Easier to copy content across modules
WileyPLUS is well suited to be used for out-of-class assignments and assessments. I think it is very adaptable, which is nice for instructors to be able to use it in whatever way they see fit. I think it is probably a bit less appropriate to use in the classroom during lectures.

WileyPlus helps me grade students' work with auto-grading. It gives the students immediate feedback that I could not provide. Wiley Plus provides many tools for my students, such as the etext, videos, flashcards, audio text, and more videos. I really like the Adaptive Assignment, because it helps the students see their weak points.
  • Auto-grading- provides immediate feedback to students.
  • Adaptive assignment- helps the students see their weak areas.
  • Video, videos, and more videos! There are solution walk-through videos, interactive tutorials, and real-world videos.
  • Tech support- I get help when I need it, right away!
  • In an ideal world, there would be no errors.
  • No typos. (especially in the power points)
  • They need better error reporting in Adaptive Assignment.
I've used Wiley Plus for many years, and they just keep adding more great tools every year! The tools my students have in their hands provide them with anything they need to learn the content. One of my students said in my end-of-semester review, "You can't help but get an A in this class when you use all that Wiley Plus has to offer!"

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.

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 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.

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.
