Education is changing. So are we. The new McGraw-Hill Education.


McGraw-Hill Education is a really exciting combination of two things. First a 125 year old company renowned for delivering fantastic high quality education for more than a century. Inside of that traditional publisher we’ve now created a brand new business. A business that applies learning science to changing lives. A learning science company is a much more apt descriptor for the McGraw-Hill Education of now. Learning science is a phrase that we are using to describe what it is that we use and apply to help people learn. So we think about how do we use technology to bring that content or deliver that content in ways we’ve never been able to before. We are focused on student achievement. We’re focused on outcomes. Technology is one of the ways we can improve outcomes. And improve achievement. The science comes in the fact that we adapt to the learner, are able to engage them, and then measure those results. This is revolutionary because suddenly we’re able to cater to the individual. We make things that are personal and personalized that they adapt to what it is that the students already know. So we try to understand where the students are based on what their needs are; we give them instruction to help fill that gap. It goes beyond the student just getting a grade back. It’s actionable. That’s really exciting. We make it accessible wherever the student is. So mobile – it’s a big part of what we do. When I think back to my education it was really one-size-fits-all. Today’s classroom and today’s student is nothing like we were when we were kids. We can release new features in really, really rapid timelines. So how good is it to know that the products that we are creating. Today have a rapid positive impact tomorrow. Not sometime down the future, but literally tomorrow. I think that a lot of what we do is we enable people to move up that social ladder. So that they can have a better life. We know that the technology is making a difference because the teachers and instructors who use it. Because the children who use it in K-12; the young adults who are using it in college respond to us and say “This is helping me.” We are now able to actually say we can be a part of the solution. We can help those institutions be more successful for their students. That is the biggest difference for us. We can help people learn better.

    Very impressive; just the sort of thing I'd expect from McGrraw-Hill. Glad to see my old company changing with the times.

    Time and sensitive release of new learning features…that's excellent! Not to mention the company's move towards the learning sciences. I am thrilled. That's really diving deep into the domain. Remarkable step for MGH Ed because many Educational Technology companies are not yet moving in that direction. They probably will find it hard do that without drawing upon the work of knowledge workers in the field.

    Does the company realize that their mobile website still doesn't allow students to turn in assignments? If you follow the link below you'll find an article or snippet the company made in regards to their mobile website from 2012.

    http://connect.customer.mheducation.com/2012/09/going-mobile/

    Focus in on this quote:

    "NOTE: Students cannot take their assignments in this mobile view. The focus for this first phase is to make the study materials available to students when they are on-the-go."

    When is this second phase coming? Where is the follow through?
    You know Pearson did something very similar. In a different class I used a Pearson textbook and they had a mobile app that was supposed to allow you to read the book online. It was completely unusable. When I called the help desk they were surprised it wasn't working well and were further shocked when I pointed out to them that their app was getting horrible reviews on Google Play. They showed a lack of follow through on making sure that their product works and keeping it up to date.

    McGraw-Hill is showing a lack of follow through on their mobile website.

    Can I just say, to you and all textbook companies, if you aren't going to stay on top of your mobile access options that you just don't start the venture at all?

    Time sensitive release of new learning features is laughable.  I am now taking my third class that uses LearnSmart and SmartBook and they still don't work with the mobile apps (iOS) because they require Adobe Flash Player.  But their marketing materials are full of students using tablets.

    McGraw-Hill Education has given up on providing effective customer service. In changing from EZ Test to TestGen they have been a complete failure. You have other options, be very careful where you spend your money, do not make the same Mistake we did.

    The ALEKS program is made to allow students to grow at their own rate. However, the explanations are difficult to understand. Teachers will sometimes use it instead of actually teaching. Aleks needs to add videos as options as explanations.
