Key Features

  • LearnSmart

    LearnSmart

    LearnSmart is an adaptive study tool proven to strengthen memory recall, increase class retention, and boost grades. Students are able to study more efficiently because they are made aware of what they know and don’t know. Real-time reports quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students—or the entire class.

  • SmartBook

    SmartBook

    SmartBook is the first and only adaptive reading experience designed to change the way students read and learn. It creates a personalized reading experience by highlighting the most impactful concepts a student needs to learn at that moment in time.  As a student engages with SmartBook, the reading experience continuously adapts by highlighting content based on what the student knows and doesn’t know. This ensures that the focus is on the content he or she needs to learn, while simultaneously promoting long-term retention of material. Use SmartBook’s real-time reports to quickly identify the concepts that require more attention from individual students–or the entire class. The end result? Students are more engaged with course content, can better prioritize their time, and come to class ready to participate.

  • IRT

    Intelligent Response Technology for Accounting

    Intelligent Response Technology is Connect Accounting’s new student interface for end-of-chapter assessment content. Intelligent Response Technology provides a general journal application that looks and feels more like what you would find in a general ledger software package, improves answer acceptance to reduce student frustration with formatting issues (such as rounding) and, for select questions, provides an expanded table that guides students through the process of solving the problem.

More Features

  • Tax Forms Problems

    Tax Forms Problems require students to complete a tax form, providing students with valuable experience and practice with filling out these forms.

  • Extensive Feedback

    Not only do students receive immediate feedback on their work, but the feedback is also very extensive and detailed, taking the approach of walking students step-by-step through how to calculate the solution to the problem like how instructors would do in class or during office hours. The extensive feedback is written by the textbook author team to provide the highest level of consistency between the problem material and textbook content.

  • Integrated eBook

    When learning tools are interactive, content is more approachable and engagement is deeper. Connect includes an Integrated eBook that builds student comprehension through animation, audio and video. As part of its rich media format, students can insert and review notes, highlight text, conduct searches for specific content and interact with high-impact images.

  • Reports

    Connect Reporting feature allows instructors to review students’ performance against criteria such as AACSB standards, difficulty, specific assignments and chapter learning objectives to help you identify specific areas of struggle.

  • End of Chapter and Testbank Content

    Connect includes direct textbook End-of-Chapter problem material, select Algorithmic problem material, and Test Bank questions. Assign students online homework, test and quiz questions with multiple problem types, algorithmic variation, and randomized question order. This fully integrated solution helps students master the concepts, practice problems and ultimately achieve success.

     

  • Lecture Capture with Tegrity

    Overcome time constraints and busy student schedules 

    With simple, one-click recording students can access your class lectures at anytime from anywhere an internet connection is accessible. A powerful keyword search function quickly pinpoints needed information. Easy access outside of class combined with a rich user experience translates into more learning opportunities and better prepared students.

  • Free Student Trial

    Make sure your students have all their course materials from day one
