Good software for both students and instructors
Kommentare: I have used these on both ends of the spectrum, as a student and instructor. The software is easy to use, has a small learning curve and is compact with all needed information and data for instructor and student. As a student, I found using the different activities to increase my memory of the material covered.

MindTap for Class Reading
Vorteile: The simplicity. Accessing E-books for school can be a frustrating process when repeated multiple times a week. With MindTap, our instructor included links to the relevant chapters every week online, so accessing it was extremely quick and easy.
Nachteile: Only being able to have on window open at a time. When assigned multiple chapters in one week, it's sometimes useful to be able to have them both up at the same time to study.

Needs A lot of Work For Students
Kommentare: I would prefer not to use it again, but if they were to improve foreign language assignment types I could be swayed.
Vorteile: I have a lot of trouble answering problems with this program. My teacher did not know how to change deadlines so the work never lined up with the curriculum. I liked the organization, but that is all.
Nachteile: For foreign languages, it can be hard to listen to a fluent speaker and be able to write word for word what they say, and that is a common assignment that is impossible to get correct. The answers have to be completely the same and the program's for any credit.

Kommentare: Great product, excellent customer service/tech support.
Vorteile: Cengage is easy to setup and integrate with Blackboard Learn. The instructor can easily select the content they want for their course and make changes on the fly. Gradebook integration is (mostly) seamless. Perhaps the best feature of Cengage is their tech support/customer service. Our sales rep is very knowledgeable and is often our first point of contact when it comes to troubleshooting. Other Publisher Software companies will continuously "pass the buck" when it comes to tech support, but Cengage tech support takes ownership and works with you to find a solution.
Nachteile: MindTap can be a bit glitchy when using an older machine. Making sure your system is constantly up to date can help alleviate some of the issues.

By far, best publisher content & usablity
Kommentare: Great product, good customer service, and makes my job in helping faculty easier. Cengage is my favorite publisher content to work with and I work with many publisher frequently.
Vorteile: I help faculty with adding test banks and other publisher content and MindTap is by far the best compare to other publishers. I have less problems when we have MindTap, and Cengage overall.
Nachteile: MindTap, unfortunately, is not available for every Cengage book out there. But is a life saver when it is. I hate dealing with other publisher content, I feel Cengage is much more user friendly and has better customer service.
