Textbook Websites – A great tool for enhancing your online learning!

kelly-schmidtThe next time you open your textbook pay attention to the website listed either within the chapter content or on the back cover. Many textbooks are paired with a companion website containing various resources designed to help students master the course material and engage in the subject matter beyond the Blackboard classroom. Every textbook companion site is a little different, but most include items such as:

  • Games
  • Crossword Puzzles
  • Flashcards
  • Glossary
  • Interactive Quizzes
  • Audio Lectures
  • PowerPoint notes
  • Chapter Summaries
  • Case Studies
  • Videos
  • Simulations

 While the course content in Blackboard is definitely what you want to focus on, as it is designed to ensure you reach the course objectives in an engaging and effective manner, the resources available on textbook companion sites can supplement your learning experience and support your mastery of the course material!
