Thoughtfully designed interactive educational software (courseware) that replaces textbooks and complements personalized instruction. Interactive Explorations adapt easily to classroom, distance learning, and hybrid educational environments. No software can replace a great teacher. But when done right, courseware can significantly enrich learning. Interactive Explorations use time-tested pedagogical techniques to reinforce instruction. By design, Interactive Explorations provide flexibility in the time and location of instruction and the use of additional resources.
Interactive Explorations make learning richer and more meaningful. Student achievements are tracked and reported through the Interactive Grade Book. Interactive Explorations titles are intended to serve as the “textbook” for introductory or survey courses in a variety of humanities and social science disciplines, including anthropology, biblical studies, criminology, history, philosophy, religious studies, and sociology.
Interactive Explorations include an array of tools to allow the instructor to customize the student learning experience and to help the student succeed. Every page of text is attractively illustrated at the rate of one for roughly every paragraph of text—a ratio that print textbooks cannot begin to match—and packed with information to bring the concepts alive. Students are offered a number of ways to interact with the material to maximize learning. Students have frequent opportunities to check their comprehension of the material. A robust set of supplementary materials (including test banks) is provided to the instructor on adoption.
By teaching in an engaging manner that enhances independent learning, Interactive Explorations free up time for the kind of learning that teachers provide best: student interaction, discussion, and the opportunity to address specific student needs and interests. If you are tired of assigning material that students don’t read, or that leaves students struggling to retain information, Interactive Explorations is your solution.
