"Everything worked well, it's just a little slow"

What do you like best?

As an administrator/instructor, MyLab is easy to use. It is easy to track the student process and view their scores. The wide variety of available content makes it good for every course. It is also easy to catch a student cheating thanks to the time tracker. It is also easy to use from the students side.

What do you dislike?

It is just a little slow. We need to wait a little bit to load a course and to update assignments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is probably the best Education management software out there.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This significantly reduces the workload for instructors. In brief, instructors create assignments online within MyLab and electronically transmit them to their class. Students enter their answers online, and Mylab automatically grades the assignment and gives students instant feedback on their performance.

What do you dislike?

was a little hard to figure out so a tutorial would have been nice. that or have the extra support online when we arent able to have time to call the phone or have a little pop up where questions could be answered by someone who is online and knowledgable in the site and whats the problem that we may be having

Recommendations to others considering the product

great if you need something that helps you in an easy and laid out matter. it helps us to have a organized and a great way to keep us on track and keep us going in a great way since we were able to maintain our professional views and our professional needs and what we need to do to help others with what they need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

saving time and the layout. nice for when we have a time contranst or when we have a quick need for something so that we can tell more and that we would be able to do the basics that are needed before we can provide the increasing service.

"Great, if used Fully"

What do you like best?

I love that it integrates well with other platforms, such as BlackBoard Learn. I also love that it has so many reinforcement modules, and that it provides immediate feedback and unlimited practice for students. This is vital in a math course, as only through regular practice can students learn, master, and retain this information.

What do you dislike?

I think the price per student is outrageous if only used for one course over one semester.

I also think that if professors would use more of the tools available to them it could be better for the students in their courses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to take advantage of all the features, including controlling the number of attempts available, and the integrating with LMS softwares.

Also, make sure students are aware that the one-time price can be used for multiple courses over a set period of time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MyLab reduces grading time and gives students immediate feedback. It also allows them unlimited attempts, without extra effort from the instructor.

MyLab integrates well with BlackBoard so students' grades from math courses can be seen in the same place as other courses.

I appreciate that students' engagement is also measured. This allows both students and professors to have insight into how much time students are spending in the course, compared to other students and to standardized benchmarks for success. This gives motivated students a sense of satisfaction and a series of goals to achieve, and provides support for those who need extra motivation.

"Great for Students"

What do you like best?

Flexible options for creating assignments and easy to share with other instructors. Also they have recently reduced the price for students. This is a very big positive!

What do you dislike?

The automatic grading features are difficult to adapt and to adjust. If assignments are past due the zero is not factored in to the running average for the students even though the option to count unattempted and past due assignments has been checked.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for sharing among many professors

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Increased student achievement, instant verification for students of their accuracy. Additional online tutoring availability.

"Pearson's system, though one of the more sophisticated school software programs, poorly performs."

What do you like best?

The idea's that Pearson tries to implements, such as having tests and quizzes online, are a great idea. I have many times enjoyed the ease of completing homework assingments from home on my computer rather than using pen and paper. The documents and books that are available online along with the homework checker are nothing short of great software.

What do you dislike?

Pearson is extremely buggy and lacks the resources to keep the website up and running. There are many times where I have tried to log on and been unable to access the proper documentation I need to complete assignments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared to face bugs that may hinder your experience with MyLab.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have not personally solved any business problems with MyLab, however I have done homework and this in turn was a huge benefit rather than turning it in, in a paper format.

"Great user experience of affective learning combined with an easy to use interface"

What do you like best?

I really like the different help buttons one can use when stuck on a problem. The software does not give you the correct answer, rather it shows you the correct path toward solving the problem.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the guidelines, especially the problems requiring equations, are too vague for me to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Out of the many platforms available for college students nowadays, I would not hesitate to try MyLab. It is a great software, sufficiently serving the students as well as the professors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it as the main homework and test platform for my Business Statistics class. This software has many benefits including instant feedback on my work, easy grading format, and well organized calendar, showing due dates of assignments

"A powerful tool useful in teaching applications"

What do you like best?

The customizable nature of MyLab is great for my courses. Allowing me to stress course content in areas that I know my students struggle with, while also cutting out nonessential items. The ability to track student progress in real time is also an advantage, allowing for early intervention to help a student before it is too late. Students also find the platform to be very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

The set-up for an instructor to customize the content takes a bit longer than I would like. And load times are sometimes also problematic. The largest disadvantage of the program is the cost, it is simply outrageous. We have discontinued the use of this product for this reason alone. I don't always like the wording of the questions, or the specificity in wording required by some of the answers. This becomes frustrating for both the instructor and the student.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be very mindful of the costs for your students. With the current information indicating that students delay purchase, or simply never buy, required textbooks, this program is quite pricey.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It works well to integrate in my college's LMS, allowing instant grade book updates, etc. The real time feedback allows me to intervene with a student if necessary. It also allows me to see specific content areas that may not have been conveyed well to students.

"A great Product"

What do you like best?

I like that this product is simple, but contains alot of options for the user. It is very easy to use and hardly freezes or causes delays

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is that it is sometimes hard to navigate through the screens. Tabs and buttons are not descriptive and do not seem like they relate to the link.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue of having courses in a centralized area. It allows easy access which is great for our line of work where we need quick access.

"Interactive but dull learning integration"

What do you like best?

The thing I like the most with MyLab is it's layout and appearance. It's easy to navigate and find whatever you're looking for.

What do you dislike?

The learning modules are slow and annoying to navigate. The pop-up windows that appear isn't appealing to the user whatsoever.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems that you are solving with MyLab is an efficient way to learn new material. Even though the platform could be improved in terms of visualization and smoothness, the learning platform is well-constructed.
