Cengage Learning Releases CourseReader

Cengage Learning has introduced CourseReader, a customized, digital collection of content assets for the classroom, further strengthening its CengageCourse suite of digital learning products and services. CourseReader leverages Cengage Learning’s Gale databases, including its authoritative reference content and full-text magazine and newspaper articles.

The product offers instructors thousands of articles and historical documents, including both primary and secondary sources, specific to their discipline, all in one location. Instructors select a series of materials from these databases for their courses, which are then compiled into an online collection for their students to access, replacing traditional printed readers.

Instructors create their customized CourseReader collection by searching the database by author, title or keyword. While CourseReader databases are created for specific disciplines and course areas, instructors can choose to add selections from different disciplines to take advantage of the vast collection of materials in the larger database. Many selections begin with an introduction and finish with critical thinking or multiple choice questions to help students understand and analyze what they’ve read. Instructors can also highlight or make notations on the readings online to help guide their students as they read.

Cengage says CourseReader is a great value for students, whether purchased in conjunction with other Cengage Learning course materials or as a stand-alone product. Students log into a website where they can view the assigned material. In addition, to meet the needs of students who prefer to learn in various formats, many readings can be listened to immediately online, downloaded as MP3 files, or printed.
