Many WebAssign courses include a dynamic ebook to provide a one-stop-learning experience for students. The ebook is fully integrated and directs students to the most relevant sections of the text to help them answer each question. The powerful Assignment Templates in WebAssign empower faculty to choose between giving students access to the ebook during the assignment or disabling the ebook for high-stakes assessments. eBook access varies by title and publisher.
Discover the MindTap Reader from Cengage
Cengage creates learning experiences that build confidence and momentum toward the future students want. That’s why we’ve made the MindTap Reader available within WebAssign for select Cengage textbooks!
The MindTap Reader provides more than just text learning for the student. It compiles tools to help students learn chapter concepts in a way that resonates with their workflow and learning styles, and offers options to personalize their reading experience.
Personalize their experience
Within the MindTap Reader, students can highlight key concepts, add notes and bookmark pages. These are collected in their online notebook, ensuring they’ll have a ready-made study guide at their fingertips when it comes time to study for the exam.
Flexibility at their fingertips
With access to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary and the book’s internal glossary, students can personalize their study experience by creating and collating their own custom flashcards. For extra flexibility, the Readspeaker feature reads text aloud to students, so they can learn on the go—wherever they are.
Embedded answers to select assessment items
Students’ lives are hectic—they can’t always make it to office hours when they need help. The MindTap Reader within WebAssign has interactive, collapsible views of select answers, allowing students to practice assessment items and prepare for exams on their own time.
Deep, question-level linking
A “Read It” button at the bottom of each question links students to corresponding sections of the textbook, enabling access to the MindTap Reader at the click of a button and at the precise moment of learning.
Within the MindTap Mobile App, available on iOS and Android smartphones, MindTap Reader enables students to download their entire textbook to their smartphone in ten seconds or less. Once downloaded, students can highlight, make notes, search and bookmark the reading material—online or off.
