  • 9. 9Tried and TrueHaving a McGraw Hill integration with Blackboard has been a gamechanger for sure. The single sign on and grade book synch savestime and reduces student frustration. It has increased studentparticipation and engagement and has allowed us to receivefeedback on the progress of each student immediately, and providesonline test proctoring that was not available to us before. Its a win-win for both students and us as instructors!

An important feature isthe gradebook synchronization : students do theirassignments and the grades are automatically putinto Blackboard. I as the professor dont have toupload grades. Liz Wilson, Marketing ProfessorI teach at least 3online courses (alongwith live ones) persemester and this islike hitting the jackpotfor me.A students are going to makeAs regardless of what is asked(or not asked) of them. TheConnect and LearnSmartassignments force all of thestudents to study in a variety ofways which evidentlyimproves their understanding. -Sharon Feaster, BiologyInstructor
  • 11. 11Student TestimonialsThe one-click access to myassignments saved me timebecause I use Blackboard for myother assignments. HavingConnect integrated into the serviceI already use daily was a huge timesaver.It made doing assignments 10 timeseasier and overall reduced time.I was able to put more focuson my studies rather thanexerting all my time andenergy towards the accessprocess alone.I didnt have to leave the Blackboardsite, go to other websites, login with adifferent name. And, the bonus wasthat it immediately posted my gradesfor my work to Blackboard, unlikeother courses where I had to wait forthe teacher to post them toBlackboard.
