“I REALLY use MyLiteratureLab in this literature course. This class lasts almost three hours, so the varied activities offered on your website are very helpful. Thank you.”
— Marlene Posner Falken, Broward Community College
“I have used the MyLiteratureLab site last semester for the first time. I totally enjoyed showing the students all of the aspects available. They enjoyed the variety of presentation and they enjoyed having someone else talk to them! I think it is so helpful to have the videos of some of the plays included. It has been such a hassle sometimes to find ones that I could get and like. I think that you have added even more now. It is a great site that I will be using next semester.”
— Mart Stchur, Luzerne County Community College
"In terms of daily reading assignments and discussions, my favorite element of MyLiteratureLab is the supplemental information about stories and authors located in the Resources tab. The brief, yet informative, author biographical information, as well as the Longman Lectures, serve as excellent springboards into class discussion and analysis. I am also a fan of the literary research resource section. Here, students get a manageable, yet comprehensive, guide to writing about literature, a content-specific skill that is different from other modes of writing they have been taught.”
— Pamela Jaycox, Mineral Area College
“Although this is my first experience with MyLiteratureLab, I have found it to be invaluable. It allows my students to work individually as well as on assignments/projects for the whole class. One of the resources that I’ve found very helpful is the Writer’s Toolkit--assessing grammar and mechanics skills; also EBSCO Select allows my students guided access to literary sources for research papers. So, it serves students in both ways.”
— Terry Clark, Kennedy King College
“Knowing that the quality of the content in MyLiteratureLab was exemplary allowed me to round out the online portion of my hybrid course using MyLiteratureLab. My students enjoyed reading the authors’ biographies, hearing passages of the texts read aloud and gaining additional insight from the Longman lectures. The program is easy to navigate, even for those less proficient with technology. The most popular feature was the personalized feedback each student received from the online tutors. I highly recommend MyLiteratureLab.”
— Dr. Kristina Beckman-Brito, Pima Community College
“I am especially impressed with the Composing tool in MyLiteratureLab. The fact that it is modeled after Word will be an asset to students who should be instantly familiar with what they see. Having the tools immediately available on the right side of the screen within Composing is also an asset.”
— Nikka Vrieze, Rochester Community and Technical College
“My students like using MyLiteratureLab because it is a central place where they can easily access everything they need for the class. They like having all their documents there; they expect that they can access it repeatedly."
"With MyLiteratureLab, I can post announcements and assignments on the calendar. I can email all my students, organize them into groups, and post documents quickly. Students can upload papers and download handouts. MyLiteratureLab is a centralized hub that is extremely easy to use and it saves me time."
"I love that the assignments are already created for me and I can go in and assign work for a month or two months out. This is a huge relief, especially teaching four classes.”
— Lauren Mason, Ph.D. Armstrong Atlantic State University
“MyLiteratureLab has made the management of an enormous teaching load much easier. It is a stellar tool for communicating with students, posting assignments, setting up peer groups, and grading papers quickly. The writing tools section offers students an extraordinary range of technical information and support that they can apply directly to their work.”
— Elizabeth Huergo, Professor, Montgomery College
