Perceivant Launches 15 New Courses, Mobile Application to Boost Student Engagement in Higher Education
September 17, 2018
Perceivant, an education technology company that replaces traditional textbooks with cost-effective, interactive and data-driven learning experiences, today announces the expansion of its product catalog with the launch of 15 new courses and a mobile application. These new offerings will provide college students with a more active learning experience, and educators with an easy, efficient way to analyze the efficacy of their courses.
Each new course from Perceivant replaces traditional textbooks with cost-effective and interactive experiences in conjunction with an easy-to-use interface specifically designed to make the learning experience more engaging. With the courseware, educators can maximize time by managing multiple courses within a single platform. Carefully-curated and professor-reviewed content are supported by auto-graded labs and self-assessments that reduce administrative work while increasing teaching time and improving students’ success rate.
Alongside the new courses, Perceivant has also launched a new mobile application. The BearTracks™ mobile app is designed to allow students to access any course using their iOS or Android mobile device. This includes the capabilities to complete and submit self-assessments, view instructional videos, receive notifications and assignment reminders on their phone, track all work history and more.
“Universities nationwide are facing a challenge on how to make textbooks more relevant, meaningful and engaging for students. This is especially true among general curriculum courses, where lack of engagement can lead students to falling behind while simultaneously jeopardizing their college careers,” said Brian Rowe, CEO and founder of Perceivant. “Our new courses – which include subjects like psychology, American history, biology and more – help educational institutions overcome this obstacle by establishing more successful learning environments for both the instructor and student.”
Perceivant courses are paired with the world’s most powerful, cutting-edge analytics to create more active learning experiences. By leveraging this data, educators can track in real-time various insights that provide enhanced visibility regarding overall course engagement, individual student engagement, progress and success. Perceivant also provides unique editorial design, tools and support for new course materials. This includes the ability for educators to create custom solutions that exceed university needs and standards.
“Perceivant’s courses are already enabling 90 percent student engagement for the fall semester,” said Rowe. “We remain committed to helping universities nationwide by providing educators with an easier, more efficient solution to analyze course efficacy while measuring metacognitive and cognitive learning.”
Perceivant’s new courses are now available for faculty review and will be available for adoption in the spring 2019 semester. Each course follows a low-cost, high-efficacy pricing model that is customized based on the needs of each university.
