Summary

iHealth is an integrated print-digital learning system designed to meet the needs of today’s students and instructors. It has two components: a Brief text, and an online system that is integrated completely with Blackboard. The brief text provides a framework for teaching key health concepts, and the online component allows for easy, automatically-graded assessment, and simple course management. We offer over 80 assignable articles from magazines and journals to supplement the print component that you can assign online, allowing you to choose which topics and themes you would like to emphasize and giving you the freedom to make the course your own.

Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective.
