This software is very easy to use and have a lot of features. You can easily insert text books, Syllabus, tests.
Unfortunately, McGraw-Hill Connect does not integrate with other software well at all. I had so much trouble trying to find a way to get the software to work with another platform we were using.
Fantastic resource with a lot of hidden gems.
Overall, it is a highly valuable resource for both students and instructors alike. It allows users to have remote access to the text that is used in the classroom if they are not able to access a copy of the textbook. There are also multimedia resources and quizzes available for some texts/resources. I loved using this in some of my university courses.
It can be a little challenging to navigate as a new user. I also think that a lot of instructors are unaware of the full resources that are available to their students. Some of the resources can seem a little “hidden” at first but once you’ve used it a couple of times you can unlock its full potential.
Want the best Medical Office - Billing and Coding software - for College students? Look no further..
製品を使ってみた感想： I am moving as many courses and resource materials to MMGH so I can use Connect in as many classes as possible. I believe all my SP21 courses are set up with MMGH and will be using Connect. They also have a medical office simulation (game) that students can mimic the exact duties and responsibilities they will be doing in the Medical Office in this software and can get grading information on their work and progress. :)
Textbook, Assignments from the textbook, Workbook, Workbook assignments from the workbook are in this software. No need to purchase a printed book and wait to get it. Everything coincides with the text and/or workbook you use from McGraw-Hill. All Instructor resources are right at hand. I can add, change, delete, hide, upload, download almost anything out of or in to Connect.
Getting started process for Instructors. Getting the students, especially the ones that are new to the Medical Office environment, up and running in the first class time. Did not work the first two semesters I used Connect but since then is not so bad. Just big learning curve already and then add having to try and help the students get started was overwhelming.
A Greedy Business
製品を使ってみた感想： Garbage. I don't see any reason this software could not be directly provided by my university unless McGraw-Hill is refusing to do a bundle deal for the college. This forces us to buy individual packages which I'm sure doesn't hurt their bottom line.
It'd be great if it wasn't additionally price gouging student who are already paying thousands for an education.
The fact that I'm already buying textbooks, materials, and paying for classes, why is my university providing this?
製品を使ってみた感想： Overall I recommend this product to anyone else in higher education. Its definitely a staple in higher education.
As someone who uses this software throughout the week religiously I can say that I've never had any complains. You know you've worked in higher education for too long when just by looking at the logo brings back memories of late nights and coffee.
The price of this product continues to rise, but would still recommend to anyone considering using it.
Good, but not great
製品を使ってみた感想： I like this software a lot. My class uses it 2-3 times a week. There was recently a hiccup that wiped out all of my previous plans, so I'm having to sort through ALL the things again. It's really a pain. They make it easy for kids to log-in via a computer or tablet browser using "simplified log-in". It would be better if they could also use the app with simplified log-in, but as it stands, it's either app w/ complicated log in, or tablet browser with easy log-in. I hear the app is buggy, but I don't really use that because it's easier for first graders to use simplified log-in.
I love the options & diversity of materials included in this software - games, review, lessons, etc. I love that parents/students can access these at home and use them as review.
Deleting things on your planner is the biggest pain - it's all right click here and confirm there. I love all the materials, but there's got to be an easier way to get rid of lessons/activities that you don't want. Also, I really dislike that so many of the activities have almost the same name, even if they're different activities.
McGraw-Hill Connect - One of the Better LMS Integrations
製品を使ってみた感想： MH-Connect, by far, provides the best customer service from my experience.
McGraw-Hill Connect (or MHConnect) provides one of the best LTI integrations with Canvas, our institution's LMS. The MHConnect interfaces allows you to create assignments, quizzes, and exams and then sync them with Canvas. When students participate in these activities, they do so through the MHConnect interface, and then their scores are passed back to the Canvas grade book. We have multiple publisher integrations in our instance of Canvas. McGraw-Hill Connect continuously provides the most stable connection with little need for support. But when we do need support, we're able to resolve things very quickly with an actual person over the phone.
The interface for MHConnect could use a major refresh that includes enhancing the intuitiveness of performing key functions. For example, after creating assignments, quizzes, and exams, it's not immediately apparent that the instructor needs to then deploy those items to Canvas. It's frequently assumed that because their Canvas course is already linked to their MHConnect course, anything created will be automatically synced with Canvas. Also, changing certain settings for a course in MHConnect needs to be better communicated to the instructor.
Connecting with McGraw-Hill Connect
製品を使ってみた感想： Overall I love the software. Our K-6 ELA teachers use it daily in the classroom as their main ELA resource. The students love that they can log in and complete assignements assigned to them by their teacher.
I love that McGraw-Hill Connect made it easy for teachers to add the product license themselves for the teacher book and the student book. Teachers are also able to setup their own account.
i can say the only thing I don’t like about McGraw-Hill Connect software is the process for uploading students into the program. You have to use a excel template to type certain login credentials for each student. This process is okay on the front in of setting up your student accounts but we get several new students a month and it would be easier to just type those few students information directly into the program instead of completing the excel template and then waiting for it to upload.
Straight forward and up to date
製品を使ってみた感想： I'm a teacher by profession it make my work easier and I'm producing required results.
Communication features is great, and much simpler to use and time saver.
I think this software are up to date according to my experience and I would like to congratulate the programmers behind the scenes that are doing sterling work.
製品を使ってみた感想： The benefits are syncing student assignment scores to D2L as well as seeing how much time a student spends on each assignment and students receive immediate feedback on their results.
That is sync's the assignment grades in Connect to your school's learning management system such as D2L.
Nothing is missing or difficulty to use. It works well with our learning management system (D2L) and was easily adopted.
Easy to use as a student for different subjects and linking textbook codes and access codes for multiple courses at a time
Clunky at the time of use -- felt like it needed better integration of Java/HTML coding to make the switches more seamless
McGraw-Hill Connect - Education in the 21st Century
製品を使ってみた感想： My overall experience with McGraw-Hill Connect has been positive. I sometimes feel that there are simply too many assignments, too much homework, and far too many quizzes, but at the same time, as a remote student, I'm saving tons of time that would otherwise be spent driving to a campus, and probably learning more in the process.
When I returned to college in 2017 to obtain my MBA, I was surprised how much everything had changed. For starters, I was earning my degree 100% online. This meant lots of e-books and e-learning tools, and both are found through McGraw-Hill Connect. What I like most about this software is that it's easy to get started and easy to maintain progress. The site stores your textbooks, and when you access a textbook, the application remembers where you left off. It's easy to tag and highlight text, sections, and pages. Toggling over to work assignments, you'll find these are easily mapped out so you always know what's due and when it's due (assuming your professor has properly set up the course, of course). I admit I found it all a bit intimidating at first, but now I quite enjoy the many features and functions this learning solution has to offer.
At times, especially when you first being navigating the site, it can be easy to get lost. And this, of course, can be really frustrating when you are on a class deadline. My advice is to navigate the site slowly and learn where everything is stored. A bit of practice will save a lot of headaches in the long run.
Bringing homework to the internet, McGraw-Hill Connect is a viable option for educators and students
製品を使ってみた感想： I am currently taking an online-based class to improve my skills. Connect allows me to complete homework assignments to further my education and ensure I have a good grasp of the material.
McGraw-Hill Connect allows educators and students to digitally assign and complete homework. Connect provides a variety of testing and work options, from timed, password protected quizzes to textbook readings and questions. Educators have the ability to choose options that fit their needs - should the students have access to the book to make a quiz open-book? Should they have the ability to check the correctness of their work (once? unlimited times?)? McGraw-Hill has designed problem sets that complement their textbooks. This means students are able to do homework directly related to the material they are learning. If desired, Connect has hint videos that walk students through the steps necessary to complete a problem.
The solutions provided by Connect are not overly helpful. At times, the hint videos or solutions will provide a way to solve a problem that is different than the method taught in the textbook. Connect could use some work on consistency in this area.
Makes Learning Easiesr
製品を使ってみた感想： Overall this software is great. Our K-6 teachers use it for math and reading daily. It helps with assignment completion since students have access at home.
Connect is a great supplemental tool for the classroom, and is a great place for e-learning. It is available for a variety of classes, and offers differentiated activities and practice. It is available to students at school and home, so they always have access to the needed material.
It can be a bit difficult to located exactly what you want, as there are many resources and the setup is not as organized as I'd like. We also occasionally have issues with popups not working on Chromebooks.
Interactive textbook increases information retained from reading
製品を使ってみた感想： Overall I think it helps me understand the material better and I think the pros definitely outweigh the cons!
This software has been used for many of my college courses and it has definitely helped me understand the material from the textbook better than if I were to be reading it on my own. Having the textbook be interactive, with important sections highlighted and questions being asked along the way, forces me to pay more attention and think critically about what I am reading. It also helped make my reading more efficient, because I was aware of what the most important sections were when I was being quizzed.
Sometimes if I just wanted to read the textbook without having the quizzes, or just read at my own pace, little reminders about how I had been reading for awhile and not looked at any of the questions yet could get very annoying. The software is great when you want to be using it but if you are trying to avoid it, it doesn't like not being used.
McGraw-Hill for online teaching
製品を使ってみた感想： so far I had good experience, highly recommend for online homework and quizzes especially if you are teaching a larger classes.
I like their presentations and assignments, it is very easy to design a quiz and exams using this software. Straight forward to use, it is very helpful to my students and their performance in exams have improved after using McCraw-Hill
software is definitely helpful for students, however the price is little expensive, students often complain about it.
I like that this software has ease of use and functionality. The students know what to expect when they use it. The software allows for students to practice topics that are struggling in or get extra practice in what the topic they like learning about. It connects to what the students are being taught and giving them extra help.
Sometimes the information or passages to be read are not the best. They may contain harder words that should not be there or the topic is not the best for students to learn about.
製品を使ってみた感想： My students enjoyed the learning experience using this program. This program is full of interactive lessons that cover all objectives and make learning so much fun.
I have loved using this program. My students really enjoy working on our objectives and lessons using this program.
I truly enjoyed every aspect of this program. I have no cons.
A good tool that is still a work in progress
製品を使ってみた感想： The software is useful for review learning and for short weekly practice quizzes. Customer service has been excellent, prompt and knowledgeable.
The adaptive learning aspect works well. It helped many students learning the content and pass the class with a good grade (B+-A). Once the instructor becomes familiar with all the functionalities, it is a valuable analysis tool.
The use of the software is not intuitive. Many extra steps are required to perform simple tasks such as copying courses from one quarter to the next. The date and time tool does not work consistently. Integration and synchronization with the learning management system can be erratic leading to panicked emails from students. There is no way to enroll as a student. Student preview is not enough to troubleshoot students' problems.
Textbook and Homework Source
製品を使ってみた感想： I really enjoyed using McGraw-Hill for my accounting classes. I would recommend using it as an educational tool.
I was required to buy McGraw Connect to take my accounting homework in college. I also purchased my textbooks on McGraw which provided me useful study materials like flashcards and quizzes. My favorite tool is the interactive textbook that highlights important information.
One problem I had with the interactive textbook were the reminders to take the quiz. It would useful for there to be a way to turn off that notification because it was distracting.
Perfect for Distance Learning!
製品を使ってみた感想： Once students are in the system, it's really helpful for making content delivery varied from textbook to online.
I like the most that the software will read the lesson out loud to the student while the student follows along. That is really helpful for struggling readers! Also, being able to assign online content directly into Google Classroom is really helpful!
It is very complicated to add and move students and then also as to where they log in. It's really frustrating.
Great for students!
製品を使ってみた感想： Overall, McGraw-Hill Connect is wonderful for students who do not want to lug large textbooks around campus but still need to access the content.
I love the ability to access text books, study guides, and other educational materials online from wherever I am.
There could be a better system for taking notes in the online textbook and later being able to access them in an efficient and helpful manner.
MBA Program Book of Choice
The majority of my professors use this product for class. It provides an online book that is connected to assignments. One thing that I like is that it links the homework to the book, and depending on how the instructor sets it up, there are many help options to complete the questions. You can also go back and review your homework and the steps on how to solve each problem.
I sometimes get locked out of the book or my homework. Aside from some minor tech glitches, I have no complaints.
McGraw Connect student textbook functionality
製品を使ってみた感想： McGraw-Hill Connect is good for textbooks but with a few tweaks the viewing experience would be great.
The book directory is very good and points you the right way to find the portions you need. Registration is easy and fast.
The book functionality isn't the best. The zoom feature is no good and navigating exercises is not easy or simple.
McGraw Hill Review
製品を使ってみた感想： I love that both our math and reading curriculums are connected and they give the students online practice with the materials, which helps for their state tests online.
I love that I can upload assignments to students and they connect with our reading and math curriculum.
For MyMath, I can't print workbook pages as a teacher for students who need extra practice.
製品を使ってみた感想： My overall experience has been amazing and I believe all of the district enjoyed using this software.
When we used this software at my school it was amazing to use and the resources and information for our teachers and students was very detailed and in depth about the information in learning.
There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about the software. Unaware of why the district stop utilizing it but it would be great for them to put it back in the curriculum.
