Inspiring Stories

Digital-first course materials improve student outcomes, but don’t take our word for it. Listen to everyday instructors and students talk about the transformative benefits of using learning platforms in their courses.

"It’s very important for me to craft a great learning experience for my students."

Professor Alan Halfen often found himself lecturing to a room full of unengaged students. WileyPLUS Learning Space helped him turn a tuned-out class into an interactive community of learners.

"Monitoring student progress during the semester is extremely important, and intervening is just vital."
