McGraw-Hill’s Adaptive Learning Technology
Webinar sponsored by McGraw Hill
Cooper Library – Brown Digital Resources Laboratory

LearnSmart. Maximize time spent studying.No two students are alike. Why should their learning paths be? LearnSmart uses revolutionary adaptive technology to build a learning experience unique to each students individual needs. It starts by identifying the topics a student knows and does not know. As the student progresses, LearnSmart adapts and adjusts the content based on his or her individual strengths, weaknesses and confidence, ensuring that every minute spent studying with LearnSmart is the most efficient and productive study time possible. LearnSmart also takes into account that everyone will forget a certain amount of material. LearnSmart pinpoints areas that a student is most likely to forget and encourages periodic review to ensure that the knowledge is truly learned and retained. In this way, LearnSmart goes beyond simply getting students to memorize material. It helps them truly retain the material in their long term memory. Want proof? Students who use LearnSmart are 35% more likely to complete their class, 13% more likely to pass their class, and have been proven to improve their performance by a full letter grade.To learn more visit http://learnsmartadvantage.com/products/learnsmart

SmartBook. The first and only adaptive reading and learning experience.As the first and only adaptive reading experience, SmartBook is changing the way students read and learn. SmartBook creates a personalized reading experience by highlighting the most important concepts a student needs to learn at that moment in time. As a student engages with SmartBook, the reading experience continuously adapts by highlighting content based on what each student knows and doesn’t know. This ensures that he or she is focused on the content needed to close specific knowledge gaps, while it simultaneously promotes long-term learning. The end result? Students are more engaged with course content, can better prioritize their time and come to class ready to participate in thoughtful discourse.To learn more visit http://learnsmartadvantage.com/products/smartbook
