This summer I am studying how to use Cengage Mindtap for my Fall technology courses. It’s a new online training platform for teaching MS-Office 2019. This new platform also works with Blackboard classroom software.
I find Mindtap relatively easy to use, but I need to get use to that lack of a student view, that was part of Pearson’s teaching platform.
One cool thing, we found is that Mindtap copies the course content, but not old dates, which makes it actually easier to copy an old course and reuse it.
Another new reason the college chose this new platform is that it prepares students to apply for MOS certification afterwards passing the course.
So, let the fun begin, as I set up 3 computer classes in between Mindtap and Blackboard.
