Features

  • A Personal Study Plan is then generated based on the way the student completes the exercises and will list the relevant certification exam objectives and highlight the areas in the text that needs review.

  • Enhanced Comprehension: All completed labs reflect a complete understanding of the tasks and concepts as they directly relate to the referenced curriculum and the Cengage Learning textbook. Through LabConnection's guidance in the virtual lab environment, the student develops skills that are accurate and consistently effective.

  • Exercises: Includes exercises that assess and prepare the learner for the virtual labs, establishing and solidifying the skills and knowledge required to complete the lab.

  • Virtual Labs: Labs consist of end-to-end procedures or multi-step tasks performed in a rich simulated environment where the learner can apply skills and critical thinking required of professionals and on standardized exams.

  • Guided Learning: LabConnection allows learners to make mistakes but alerts them to errors made before they can move on to the next step, sometimes offering demonstration as well as media rich answers, all in a simple, intuitive interface

  • Video demonstrations: Instructor-led video demonstrations guide the learners step by step through the labs while providing additional insights to solidify the concepts.
