Powerful adaptive quizzing, a game-like format, direct links to the e-Book, instant feedback, and the promise of better grades make using LearningCurve a no brainer. Customized quizzing tailored to each text adapts to students responses and provides material at different difficulty levels and topics based on student performance. Students love the simple yet powerful system and instructors can access class reports to help refine lecture content.

A Fully interactive e-Book
Every LaunchPad e-Book comes with powerful study tools for students, video and multimedia content, and easy customization for instructors. Students can search, highlight, and bookmark, making it easier to study and access key content. And teachers can make sure their class gets just the book they want to deliver: customize and rearrange chapters, add and share notes and discussions, and link to quizzes, activities, and other resources.

Intuitive and Useful Analytics
The gradebook quickly and easily allows you to look up performance metrics for your whole class, for individual students and for individual assignments. Having ready access to this information can help in both lecture prep and in making office hours more productive and efficient.

Assignable Media Resources with Assessment
Each LaunchPad incorporates a wide range of interactive resources developed exclusively for the course, including tutorials, animations, videos, activities, and more. All of these resources can be assigned through LaunchPad, with assessment results reporting directly into the gradebook.

Videos for Introductory Psychology (159 brief clips) span the full range of standard topics, with each clip easily assignable and assessable.

Topic Tutorials let explore a variety of important topics, often in the role of either researcher or subject. The tutorials combine animations, video, illustrations, and self-assessment.

Concept Practice, created by award-winning multimedia author Thomas Ludwig (Hope College),helps students solidify their understanding of key concepts.

Investigations let students participate in classic and contemporary experiments, generating real data, and reviewing the broader implications of those findings. A virtual host makes this a truly interactive experience.
