McGraw-Hill Connect Improves Student Success and Increases Instructor Efficiency at Hinds Community College
In 2010, Professor Sharon Feaster began offering Connect Anatomy & Physiology to her students as an extra study tool. Professor Feaster was hesitant to require McGraw-Hill Connect and have her students go to two course websites – Blackboard Learn and Connect – so she made it optional for students.
As soon as the Blackboard integration became available, she immediately jumped on board and started requiring her students to use McGraw-Hill Connect. As a result, she experienced significant improvements in course and exam pass rates, demonstrating the effectiveness of Connect and LearnSmart on student learning. In addition, she saw a 29% reduction in course withdrawals, which she assumes is a result of fewer students feeling compelled to withdraw because they were succeeding in the course.
