Overall Satisfaction with McGraw-Hill Connect

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.
  • Because it did not integrate well with BBlearn and the adaptive quizzing did not function properly, we lost a great deal of time and had to face a large number of student issues. If it had worked well, we may still be using it.
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.
