Revel™ is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel offers:
Dynamic content designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn brings concepts to life
Integrated within the narrative, interactives and videos empower students to engage with concepts and take an active role in learning. Revel's unique presentation of media as an intrinsic part of course content brings the hallmark features of Pearson's bestselling titles to life. Revel's media interactives have been designed to be completed quickly, and its videos are brief, so students stay focused and on task.
TechTutors offer video training and instruction for key technologies, software, and instructional concepts. TechTutors for Adobe products of particular interest to educators, including Creative Cloud software and Adobe mobile apps, have been added to this powerful multimedia resource.
Voices from the Classroom includes video of educators both in and out of the classroom demonstrating and discussing the technology relevant to that chapter. These voices of real teachers telling their own stories about technologies they have integrated into their classrooms help readers to see how educational technology is relevant to real classrooms.
Check Your Understanding multiple-choice assessment questions test students’ knowledge of the content they have just read at the end of each major section. Feedback for the correct answer is provided.
Consider This interactive questions appear at the end of each major section. This feature allows students an opportunity to stop and informally review critical content and think about how it can be applied in the digital classroom before moving to the next topic.
Interactive Reflections—short-answer questions with feedback at the end of each chapter—provide additional opportunities for students to think about how they would apply what they have learned to their own teaching and student learning experiences.
Learning Together exercises—short-answer prompts at the end of each chapter—allow students to share their thoughts and ideas on key issues. With this feature, students can read and respond to their classmates' comments in a discussion board-like setting.
- Flash Reviews—interactive flash card reviews provided at the end of each chapter—offer students an opportunity to test their knowledge of key terms in an interactive format.
- An Interactive Glossary links bolded key terms in the text to glossary definitions, enabling students to comprehend what they are reading while they are reading, without having to skip concepts they do not understand.
- The Revel mobile app lets students read, practice, and study–anywhere, anytime, on any device. Content is available both online and offline, and the app syncs work across all registered devices automatically, giving students great flexibility to toggle between phone, tablet, and laptop as they move through their day. The app also lets students set assignment notifications to stay on top of all due dates.
Highlighting, note taking, and a glossary let students read and study however they like. Educators can add notes for students, too, including reminders or study tips.
Superior assignability and tracking tools help educators make sure students are completing their reading and understanding core concepts
Revel’s assignment calendar allows educators to indicate precisely which readings must be completed on which dates. This clear, detailed schedule helps students stay on task by eliminating any ambiguity as to which material will be covered during each class. When they understand exactly what is expected of them, students are better motivated to keep up.
Revel’s performance dashboard empowers educators to monitor class assignment completion as well as individual student achievement. Actionable information, such as points earned on quizzes and tests and time on task, helps educators intersect with their students in meaningful ways. For example, the trending column reveals whether students' grades are improving or declining, helping educators to identify students who might need help to stay on track.
Revel’s Blackboard Learn™ integration provides institutions, instructors, and students easy access to their Revel courses. With single sign-on, students can be ready to access Revel’s interactive blend of authors' narrative, media, and assessment on their first day. Flexible, on-demand grade synchronization capabilities allow educators to control exactly which Revel grades should be transferred to the Blackboard Gradebook.
