"Cengage, an education and technology company, launched MindTap ACE, a digital solution that blends curated Open Educational Resources (OER) with Cengage content. Designed to help faculty seamlessly integrate OER into their courses, MindTap ACE expands Cengage’s portfolio of learning solutions that use open resources, including MindTap, WebAssign and Learning Objects.
'Today’s education landscape demands new and innovative approaches that deliver better learning outcomes at more affordable price points. Yet far too often, the debate is an either/or of achievement versus price, when the reality is that OER can complement proprietary content,' said Michael Hansen, CEO, Cengage. 'MindTap ACE addresses this challenge by including OER alongside Cengage’s best-in-class content. The result is an affordable option that ensures students still benefit from a meaningful learning experience.'"
