Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
McGraw-Hill Education, a learning science company, and BenchPrep, a digital learning platform company, today announced a collaboration to develop Cross-Platform Prep Courses for students aspiring to attend medical school, law school, and other graduate school programs. The new, innovative cross-platform program includes both a print edition and a personalized, interactive test prep program accessible on web, mobile and tablet devices.
For more than a century, McGraw-Education has been the trusted authority in raising student achievement with comprehensive test prep, study guides, language instruction, and dictionaries. With a newly redefined focus in technology, the company is introducing new ways to apply learning science to further improve student achievement and outcomes. McGraw-Hill Education’s decision to work with BenchPrep reflects an increasing demand for blended learning solutions that combine the unparalleled expertise of McGraw-Hill Education’s editorial staff with BenchPrep’s expertise in personalization, instructional design and learning experience.
Over the next 12 months, the two companies will release more than 20 Cross-Platform Prep Courses covering graduate admissions exams including the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, and MCAT in addition to revisions of their SAT, ACT, and Advanced Placement Exam (AP) courses. These online courses will be offered as part of McGraw-Hill Education’s broader digital & print portfolio and will be branded as McGraw-Hill Cross-Platform Prep Courses. The cross-platform format is specifically designed to provide democratic and personalized access across all formats and modalities to help students improve learning outcomes.
The new solution provides students with a personalized curriculum, robust assessment engine, interactive instructions, engaging games, and insightful analytics that improve proficiency in core learning objectives tested on the standardized exams. The digital solution is designed to help users identify their strengths and weaknesses, stay organized with a personalized study plan, and simulate the test taking experience with full-length interactive practice exams followed by actionable score reports.
”Cross-Platform technology is an incredible tool for students preparing for the current generation of assessments – each student who uses the course will have a personalized study experience geared specifically toward his or her strengths and weaknesses,” said Bob O’Sullivan, associate publisher, test prep for McGraw-Hill Education. “ The McGraw-Hill Education team is thrilled to partner with BenchPrep to offer our proven test prep content on an interactive and adaptive platform.”
“We are very excited to partner with McGraw-Hill Education on this pioneering initiative. Both organizations are committed to offering best-in-class digital learning tools to students in the format they prefer and on the device they own. The cross-platform solution brings together the best of print and digital to enable student success,” said BenchPrep CEO & co-founder Ashish Rangnekar. ”With the new cross-platform solution, students won’t have to decide between print and digital.”
Additionally, the solution will leverage well-grounded instructional design principles and learning techniques developed by BenchPrep to improve engagement and learning outcomes. The platform leverages game mechanics, micro-learning modules and intuitive user interaction elements to deliver an engaging learning experience.
More than 30 education & training companies use BenchPrep’s proprietary learning technology to deliver digital learning courses to more than 1 million learners worldwide.
