Revel Communication

Preview Features

Designed for how you want to teach — and how your students want to learn

Revel is an interactive learning environment that engages students and helps them prepare for your class. Reimagining their content, our authors integrate media and assessment throughout the narrative so students can read, explore, and practice, all at the same time. Thanks to this dynamic reading experience, students come to class prepared to discuss, apply, and learn about communication — from you and from each other.

For example, when reading about public speaking anxiety, students are prompted to complete a self-assessment to gauge their own communication style, and explore ways to improve upon their skills. Or when students read about Martin Luther King Jr.’s famed “I Have a Dream” speech, they can also watch a video of the speech. By providing opportunities to read about, see, and practice communication principles, Revel engages students deeply, which leads to a better understanding of course material.



The best of MediaShare functionality, including student video submissions and video quizzes, is available to use and assign within Revel.
