Move students beyond the point and click

 

The goal of the Exploring series has been to move students beyond the point and click, helping them understand the why and how behind each skill. The Exploring series also enables students to extend the learning beyond the classroom–a lot of learning takes place outside of the classroom, and the Exploring series provides learning tools that students can access anytime, anywhere.

 

Students go to college now with a different set of skills than they did years ago. With this in mind, the Exploring series seeks to move students beyond the basics of the software at a faster pace, without sacrificing coverage of the fundamental skills that every one needs to know.

  • Move Beyond the Point and Click: Students can move beyond the basics of the software at a faster pace, without sacrificing coverage of fundamental skills.
  • Extend Learning Beyond the Classroom: A lot of learning takes place outside of the classroom, and the Exploring series provides learning tools that students can access anytime, anywhere.
