MyOMLab: Some Enhancement for Spring 2015
HTML5 Player Enhancements: Show Work and Printing Options The HTML5 player will include a redesigned Show Work component that lets students enter text either from a keyboard or by using a stylus or finger to draw freehand on different backgrounds (such as a coordinate graph) using multiple fonts and colors. Students can also continue to upload images such as phone-photos of hand-written work. The printing enhancements include improvements to the layout of printed exercises to be more pen-and-paper friendly and the addition of several new printing options for the instructor (only available if HTML5 player is available for all devices in given book) including the ability to add instructions, add an honor statement, print an answer sheet with answers in-line, and more.
Show/Hide Learning Aids at the Question Level New options for learning aids availability let instructors choose whether to show or hide all learning aids for specific questions or to show or hide specific learning aids for specific questions. These options are accessed from the View Question Details/View Assignment Details page on Step 2 of assignment creation.
Study Plan Enhancements Instructors will have a new Gradebook view that lets them easily review and analyze students’ progress on Companion Study Plans, including an Item Analysis view that identifies which objectives the class mastered or had trouble with. Instructors can also set as the default a new interactive view of the course (the former View Progress page) that lets students go directly to the sections or topics that need study. Also, the next-assigned Companion Study Plan will be automatically shown to students, simplifying their navigation in the Study Plan.
Dynamic Study Modules Improvements Improvements to Dynamic Study Modules included a revised progress bar that better visualizes the students progress in a module, a new introduction video familiarizing students with DSMs and popups that replace the “Rose” avatar, a streamlined experience between rounds, and the ability for Pearson to add customized end-of-module messages.
Improved MMND Discussion Board The ND discussion board is getting a new design and layout.
