"Our goal with MindTap is to inspire and teach students to think critically and be better prepared for the workforce. We're honored for the recognition of the impact our efforts are having on education and of our dedication to improving learning through engagement and technology."
MindTap is a cloud-based learning environment that makes it possible for students to learn from anywhere 24/7 using their preferred mobile device.
