New Features and Content Available Now!

May 29, 2018

Here's what's new to the Learning Center:

  • Vocabulary Plus has been updated to match the new fifth editions of Building Vocabulary Skills, Improving Vocabulary Skills, and Advancing Vocabulary Skills. Chapter exercises, tests, unit reviews, and passages feature fresh items, including images to accompany all Final Check activities. In addition, eBooks for all three new titles are available. Students and programs with existing Vocabulary Plus subscriptions/licenses have been upgraded to this new material. Grades, scores, class settings, and progress data have been preserved during this upgrade. 
  • Bluford Series study guides and assignments have been expanded to include material for Girls Like Me. This new content appears within the existing menu of items for the Bluford Series. It can be added to classes at no charge. 
  • The eBook Reader was enhanced with a new feature: highlighting.  This is the first of a series of capabilities coming to the reader that will allow students to have deeper interactions with eBooks in the Learning Center. Forthcoming enhancements will also bring new options for teachers to incorporate eBooks into class assignments. Look for more details in fall 2018. 
  • PowerPoints have been added to accompany the newest Ten Steps book, Ten Steps to Mastering College Reading Skills. Like all our PowerPoints, these new additions introduce key concepts and provide an instructional foundation for the skills students will learn in their textbook and Learning Center assignments. 

The above new materials are available nowIf you have questions or want to know more about the items mentioned above, email us at or call (888) 752–6410.  We look forward to hearing from you!
