Wiley Visualizing’s multi-media approach to learning helps students achieve more

SEG Research recently conducted a national, multi-site study of students enrolled in introductory-level college courses. The study evaluated the effectiveness of Wiley Visualizing, an educational program designed to better engage students, increase retention, and improve student learning by use of a pedagogy in which meaningful visuals and multimedia are integrated with the text.

Wiley Visualizing supports faculty and promotes student engagement by facilitating comprehension leading to increased retention.

A collection of videos accompany each Wiley Visualzing text

A collection of videos, mostly from the award-winning National Geographic Film Collection, accompany each Wiley Visualzing text. Each video clip illustrates a specific concept or topic and is accompanied by commentary and questions that further develop student understanding. Icons in the text indicate when a video clip is available.
