*The modular format promotes student learning and success by presenting content in small, manageable chunks.
*The “Appreciative View” puts function before dysfunction and treats psychology as an integrated science. Students come to understand the true breadth of the discipline and to apply what they learn to their own daily experiences.
*The adaptive learning system helps students identify what they “know and don’t know” – then guides them to a focus on what they don’t know through interactivities, exercises, and readings.
