Evolve Online CoursesEvolve Online Courses are the most useful and valuable product because they contain a rich offering of multimedia resources combined with professional instructional design that targets specific user learning styles. Most courses supplement an existing Elsevier textbook and provide a comprehensive blended approach to learning.
Online courses can include self-contained interactive exercises, illustrations, photographs, animation modules with narration, vocabulary, spelling and pronunciation aids; videos, slide shows, assessment questions of various formats, such as multiple choice, true/false, matching, and fill-in-the-blank. Hyperlinks within the content also allow students to easily jump to more information on a particular term or topic.
