Technology Resources for Concepts of Biology

by Theresa Martin 1 year, 6 months ago

Hi there,

Has anyone has any experience with the technology apps that go with Concepts of Biology?  I am teaching an introductory biology course online next semester, and am looking for an adaptive learning product to pair with the text. It needs to integrate with Canvas, and I notice that WileyPlus offers such a product. Has anyone tried WileyPlus or another product you can recommend?

Thanks! Theresa (College of San Mateo)

Some of our instructors use Sapling Learning to go with the Concepts of Biology text.  They have been using it for a few semesters and seem happy with it.

Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for that information. I will look into it. Right now, Sapling is not listed as one of the apps on our Canvas platform, but I see from the Sapling website link you sent that they do have Canvas integration.

Thanks! Theresa
