“Good software for both students and instructors”

OverallI have used these on both ends of the spectrum, as a student and instructor. The software is easy to use, has a small learning curve and is compact with all needed information and data for instructor and student. As a student, I found using the different activities to increase my memory of the material covered.
ProsMindtap offers a variety of activities for a student to be able to study and review material for a course. Activities vary from tradition flashcards to more engaging and creative tasks in order to review material.
ConsCustomer service and support can be slow to respond.

“Cengage MindTap”

OverallGreat product, excellent customer service/tech support.
ProsCengage is easy to setup and integrate with Blackboard Learn. The instructor can easily select the content they want for their course and make changes on the fly. Gradebook integration is (mostly) seamless. Perhaps the best feature of Cengage is their tech support/customer service. Our sales rep is very knowledgeable and is often our first point of contact when it comes to troubleshooting. Other Publisher Software companies will continuously "pass the buck" when it comes to tech support, but Cengage tech support takes ownership and works with you to find a solution.
ConsMindTap can be a bit glitchy when using an older machine. Making sure your system is constantly up to date can help alleviate some of the issues.

“Reliable resource for students”

OverallOverall, Mindtap has been a grade saver for me and has gotten me through a few classes. I use it whenever I study for chemistry class and it's been a great experience.
ProsMindtap makes learning easier with its in-depth information on each concept and personalized quizzes. Their notes are easy to understand and they provide videos and cheat sheets which are really helpful when studying.
ConsIt's not free, but I would say it is worth its value.

“Great Customer Support”

OverallGreat! You can see your grades, there are helpful videos throughout the readings, and useful reviews.
ProsI accidentally bought the wrong access code, but after talking to Customer Support they were able to get me switched over to the right course with no extra fees. They really care about their customers and making sure they feel supported.
ConsIt's pretty expensive, but if you have multiple courses on it, buy the unlimited package because you'll end up saving a lot of money.

“I hate MindTap and so do my students”

ProsIt grades assignments and exams automatically, so less work for me.
ConsI have it and my students hate it. Editing info imported from Aplia can't be easily edited. Problem are not real life problems. Problems take a long time and can be unnecessarily confusing.
