Engage students as they read

Revel was designed to make sure every student is prepared to participate and learn prior to class. To keep students engaged as they read through each chapter, Revel integrates videos, interactives, and assessments directly into the author-created narrative. Thanks to this media-rich presentation of content, students are more likely to complete their assigned reading and retain what they've read.

Encourage practice and review

Embedded assessments such as quizzes and concept checks afford students opportunities to check their understanding at regular intervals before moving on. Assessments in Revel let instructors gauge student comprehension frequently, provide timely feedback, and address learning gaps along the way.

Foster critical thinking through writing

Available in select Revel courses, writing assignments enable educators to foster and assess critical thinking without significantly impacting their grading burden.

  • Self-paced journaling prompts throughout the narrative encourage students to express their thoughts without breaking stride in their reading.
  • Assignable shared writing activities direct students to share written responses with classmates, fostering peer discussion.
  • Essays integrated directly within Revel allow instructors to assign the precise writing tasks they need. Educators can create and grade their own prompts, or they can use a Pearson-created prompt, grade the first batch of assignments, and let the assisted auto-scoring functionality in Revel do the rest.

Interactive assignments in Revel offer students opportunities to further their knowledge by applying concepts and testing their understanding.

  • Video quizzes engage students while checking their understanding of concepts. Instructors can share videos accompanied by time-stamped multiple-choice questions.
  • Shared multimedia assignments enable instructors and students to post and respond to videos and other media. Students can also record and upload their own presentations for grading, comments, or peer review.

Keep students on pace with their reading

Revel allows educators to monitor student progress on assigned reading, which is a good indicator of how the class is doing. By tracking reading, and having the option to make it a percentage of the final grade, instructors can hold students accountable and keep them on track.
