CogWare™ : Advanced Adaptive Courseware from CogBooks
This Adaptive Courseware discusses the principles of genetics with application to the study of biological function at the level of molecules, cells, and multicellular organisms, including humans.
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
