Overall Satisfaction with WileyPLUS

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
  • Positive: Freed up time for me
  • Negative: I don't get to know the students' handwriting as well.
  • Positive: Easier for students to master the material
WileyPLUS is targeted at a different function than the others. Blackboard Collaborate focuses on online presentations to a group (e.g., online lectures), while Blackboard Learn manages the entirety of a course (assignments--including from WileyPLUS, gradebook, etc.), but has no built-in questions/help.
I rarely have problems, but got quick fixes when I've contacted them.

Did implementation of WileyPLUS go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy WileyPLUS again?

Yes

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.
