Student Perspective of CourseMate
Student Sound Bites…
“Love the online book,
it really helped me
because I ended up
losing my book. I also
loved the practice
quizzes and
essays…they really
helped me”
“I like how you can move at
your own pace and redo the
tests and quizzes as many
times as you want.”
“Flashcards are
awesome! They
saved me time from
having to write down
all the vocab”
“Easier than using
the printed book”
“Gave me a different way to
study the chapter, plus it
gave me immediate
feedback and I didn’t have
to wait on my teacher to
grade it over the weekend.”
“It gives you other ways to explain the information than my
instructor…..uses creative ideas to show the material such as
diagrams, and it’s easy to use.”
