Revel – Encouraging more active learning

Research shows that, when it comes to studying and homework, students very often don’t read enough and are not prepared for class. They also don’t always value self-study and may lose motivation and fall behind in their learning. Revel is a teaching and learning system that blends author content with interactive media and continuous assessment tools to encourage students to learn and practice in a fluid way. Revel is easy to use – right from day one in the classroom, with flexible access to content that is designed to engage, motivate and develop critical thinking skills as students build subject confidence and knowledge.
