Making the Move: Composition
Dr. Darcie Rives-East
Composition Professor at Augustana University
Dr. Rives-East, Composition professor at Augustana University, shares her experience moving to Achieve from LaunchPad. Achieve has so many more capabilities than LaunchPad (such as peer editing and instructor editing of papers, paper assignment templates, etc.). I also thought it was easier to integrate Achieve with an LMS (such as Canvas).
Making the Move: History
Dr. Susan McCormack
Professor of History at Community College of Rhode Island
Dr. McCormack, Professor of History at Community College of Rhode Island has found the key to a more seamless transition from using LaunchPad to Achieve is to have students use Achieve from the first day of class. She explains, ‘ I plan to utilize two Achieve tools on the first day to help the students get to know the software and me to get to know the students.’ Hear her firsthand account of her transition in her Day 1 blog.
Making the Move: Psychology
Dr. Michael Stroud
Psychology Professor at Merrimack College
Professor of Psychology at Merrimack College, Michael Stroud discusses his first hand experience transitioning from LaunchPad to Achieve. Professor Stroud explains, "the user interface with Achieve is much more fluid. Finding activities and materials and assigning them is much easier as well.”
