Overall Satisfaction with MindTap

I am using MindTap in my Business Statistics classes at the School of Business, College of Charleston. I believe other professors in other courses are also using MindTap to help students' learning. I use MindTap because it has useful features that help students engage, visualize, and understand statistics better. It has applets, videos, and applied exercises that complement my classes. Also, it has assignments where students can apply the concepts and learn by doing. After three years of using it in my classes, I believe it helps provide a structure for the class and guide students in learning business statistics.
  • MindTap has applets that help me show students abstract concepts of statistics. Ba accessing and dragging the pointer over a distribution, I can show students how probabilities change as a results of changes in the area under the chart.
  • It has interesting videos showing applications of statistics by companies.
  • MindTap has assignments and additional tool students can use to learn-by-doing, getting feedback immediately.
  • I'd like to change some questions, eliminating parts of questions that I don't cover in a specific class.
  • I'd like to have random words replacing words in problems' statement to prevent students from looking for answer over the internet.
  • The positive impact is to help students practice statistics to solve business problems.
  • The negative side is that the pricing might be too high compared to other free options available, even though the free options might not have the same features MindTap has.
I have not used other similar tools to compare with MindTap.

Would you buy Cengage MindTap again?


MindTap seems a good fit for math and statistic based classes where students need additional tools to understand concepts and must practice exercises to get the dynamics of how to apply math and statistics tools to solve real problems. I never used MindTap for a conceptual-based class, so I don't know how it can add for a class that does not have math and statistics.
