Overall Satisfaction with MindTap

The MindTap application is a very useful tool for those who want to teach a distance learning course, it is one of the best editing integrators you can get. Among its many functions we can add textbook plug-ins to speed up learning. The technical support provided by MindTap has been one of the best integrations that this tool has, in case you have a question or problem with the application, the support staff is very friendly and 100% of the problems are solved in record time. MindTap is an application that has been perfectly easy to adapt to the students and older teachers we have. At times it can be tedious with its endless pop-up windows, but overall, we have had an excellent time using it.
  • The main advantage of MindTap application is that you can add digital textbooks as a support complement, apart from that they have accessibility tools that integrate between reading voice in high volume and a tool to take notes quickly in case of making a note.
  • MindTap allows us to synchronize with applications such as Blackboard to import content into an LMS. We can import and export from grades or preset activities for students. It also has the option to copy and paste content from one semester to another.
  • The application has an extension for cell phones, students can access any material such as flash cards wherever they are. It has been completely useful as it shows grades digitally while other institutions only use printed books.
  • The application integrates an LTI section where all the information and planning of activities, exams and grades can be imported into the same learning system, unifying the entire course in a single window per course.
  • As for the exams and evaluations given to our students, the application also allows us to create self-evaluation questionnaires to determine how effective your instructors are, and they can also create customizable exams for each student.
  • The application has a section where we can assign an internal technical support staff so that both teachers and students can contact each other to solve any problems that may arise.
  • For those who are just using the app, it can be frustrating with ad blockers. Because MindTap has so many pop-ups, the blockers sometimes don't even let it open the platform properly and tends to generate a lot of frustration with students.
  • The application sets statuses to differentiate who is an instructor and who is a student, however, the application lacks a robust set of roles to set or change those statuses. It is very complicated, for example, to upgrade a regular student to an assistant worker when they are in the internship stage.
  • The application is totally different between students and instructors; for the former the usability can be very comfortable, but for teachers it can be frustrating because of its lack of robustness to implement functions that we consider basic.
  • This application has provided us with an increase in service payments because it is not so expensive and also has a free version that is fully functional.
  • We have been able to decrease expenses on prolonged training for teachers and administrative staff due to its overall ease of use.

We started using the application optimally at the beginning as a digital learning and consultation platform. In it we imported all kinds of bibliographic material so that students could access them with the ease of a tap. The application is perfect for those instructors who are not beginners in HTML. In that case, the application very practically allows them to create a complete course in the shortest possible time because it has a state-of-the-art instructional design. It was excellent for unifying all the basic course plans between teachers teaching the same subject, giving the advantage that all courses at the same level would have exactly the same information and nothing would be overlooked
