CogWare™ : Advanced Adaptive Courseware from CogBooks
This Adaptive Courseware explores processes of adaptive change and speciation in sexual populations.
Because the course is built on CogBooks’ Advanced Adaptive technology, it instantly helps you teach more effectively and provide every student with the individual support they need.
Your students will find the experience miles ahead of a static textbook. And because our smart instructor tools give you deep insights into each individual student, you’ll find you can use your valuable time much more productively.
“When they come to class, we have the ability to check where they have questions, so only cover those points instead of going for the whole curriculum.”
Susan Holechek Arizona State University

The Evolution course has been crafted in close collaboration with faculty at Arizona State University. It is based on Oxford University Press content, and enriched with dozens of video clips and interactive elements. Combined with our Advanced Adaptive Learning methods, it provides a state of the art courseware experience.
CogBooks partners with Oxford University Press as a major content contributor to this course on Evolution.
