I had to buy a McGraw-Hill textbook and online code for my accounting class. A good portion of the class takes place on the online portion, called Connect. It has been a miserable experience! The questions are poorly and even deceptively worded and focus on tangents not covered in the textbook. Further, the LearnSmart portion is atrocious! To name but a few of the problems there are constant pop-ups saying that I have no internet connection and my answers aren't being saved, which never turns out to be true. A mandatory pop-up survey appears mid-quiz, wasting crucial time as well as being totally inappropriate. And lastly and most egregiously, the night before every one of my tests the website flashes up an unavoidable pop-up, forcing me to create a profile for one of its stupid scoreboard things and then proceeds to deny me access to the questions ans study material, citing error #2032. That ridiculous bs has cost people a passing grade in this course, and would have for me too had I not brought it to the attention of my prof. As an aside, it runs on Adobe Reader, so Apple users are out of luck. I would urge administrators and professors to seriously consider an alternative to McGraw-Hill Connect. Integrating academics with technology is crucial to preparing for tomorrow, but not at the cost of all this frustration, dysfunction, and wasted cash. I have never been more unsatisfied with any product in my life.
