McGraw-Hill's Connect includes features for both students and instructors, including tools such as access to lecture materials, practice problems and eBooks for students, plus lesson plan setup, assessment tools and online grading tools for instructors. The system also generates reports on student progress and class section analytics, and it includes a tool called LearnSmart, which strengthens memory recall and increases class retention.
Connect gives instructors a simple way to integrate digital resources into course planning. The system's tools and features are all customizable, so each instructor can tailor the program's resources to his individual course materials and setup. Connect provides premade assignments if the instructor wishes to use them, or an assignment creation tool if he wishes to create his own.
Students may use Connect to submit assignments digitally, access the note-sharing app which allows students to share their notes with each other, and access study tips and tools that keep students organized and help them to focus on the information they need to know to succeed.
Both students and instructors have access to virtual training on how to use the Connect system, which includes video tutorials, articles, step-by-step instructions and infographics. Live help is available through the online chat function, and the Connect page provides a toll-free phone number for further assistance.
