With LearnSmart I am able to offer my Organizations and Management survey course under an academic service learning model. I can dedicate class time so that my students can interview directors of a local non-profit organization and use the conversation to illustrate concepts from their text. I can also dedicate class time so that student teams can plan and execute semester long projects to increase awareness and raise money for the non-profit organization

Students are learning more, and I have time to commit to more advanced instruction (e.g., giving feedback on papers) because I am not grading homework assignments
—Julie M., Psychology Instructor, Glendale Community College
Multiple students have commented that they like the LearnSmart modules and they have been asking for me to post the online activities sooner so that they can begin studying sooner

I feel it is a great tool to administer homework. By having algorithmic problems, it virtually eliminates the possibility that a student can copy from a peer. Overall, it is an excellent method for determining student performance and effort in the class

On average, students who complete each LearnSmart study module to, at least, 50% completion, end up with one letter grade higher than their counterparts who do not use the LearnSmart study modules or do not complete them to, at least, 50%. Those who complete them to 100%, end up with a letter grade that is almost 2 letters higher than those who do not complete them at all

Students come to class prepared and as a result, I am able to utilize class time more productively for class discussion and participation in experiential exercises to support it

One student described LearnSmart as her own personal tutor. Several students have told me they like that LearnSmart stops and directs them to the textbook when they continually miss questions pertaining to a particular topic
