Commentaires: Overall I am very satisfied. Although there is a learning curve, especially if you want to use advanced features, your time pays off with great resources for students. In the end, I believe my students benefit from Pearson's products, and I believe it helps with improving test scores.

Avantages: I currently work with a group of students that are very high need, and Pearson has products that are extremely useful for creating assignments and assessments that are tailored to each student's needs. Specifically, using MyMathLab has been a game changer for my building. I can't imagine providing these options without Pearson, at least in a way that wouldn't require an inappropriate amount of work from teachers (beyond what they already do).

Inconvénients: Some of the products are not intuitive, and it takes training from somebody who knows it in order to use many features. I am quick to pick up tech tools (and I take copious notes), but I have many coworkers that struggle regularly with how to use certain products.

Commentaires: I am a Grad student. I have spent a lot of time using a lot of educational software programs. Pearson Education has been the one that I have encountered and experienced the most. It's been the most consistent and easy to learn. I would recommend it anyone looking for an educational tool that makes school-life all the easier. I have nothing bad to say about it!

Avantages: Being a student means experiencing new software and ways of learning. It can be intimidating at times, but navigating through Pearson Education software, especially MyLab and Mastering, is facile and seemingly effortless to master.

Inconvénients: I am severely dyslexic, and I would really love to see an option to alter the literature for people like myself. For example, providing an option to transition the "pages" from white to yellow.

Commentaires: Our overall experience has been good, especially with using the tool to enhance what learning activities we can provide for our students.

Avantages: Pearson Education is a great way to bring the learning tools of their various series into the hands of students, with augmented features that print media alone don't offer.

Inconvénients: Like any new software, training for teachers is a factor. Schools can struggle to schedule enough training time, but if a school does provide that, the software becomes familiar and easy to navigate.

Commentaires: I have used Pearson software to study for standardized testing (GRE) and my experience has been nothing but positive.

Avantages: I have used a lot of different educational software and Pearson Education is consistently the most reliable and easy to access.

Inconvénients: The ability to return to testing diagnostic services after a certain amount of time has passed; I did not retake the GRE after initial attempt for another year.

Commentaires: I don't know if the issues I've had are really a problem with Pearson or an issue with the district not troubleshooting these issues before pushing it out to the teachers and students

Avantages: Our district uses Pearson Education for social studies classes. In the history courses, teachers and students access the textbook and other materials through Pearson Realize. Pearson Realize is easy for both teachers and students to navigate and use.

Inconvénients: The behavioral science classes in the social studies department rely on Pearson My Lab and Mastering. The eBooks don't always load properly and students have difficulty accessing the other parts of the program.

Commentaires: Overall, Pearson has increased school to home access and participation. That equals a win-win situation for both the students and the teachers.

Avantages: Pearson Education is making access to resources readily available to teachers, students, and parents. In using the software that complements student textbooks, students can review the day's lesson, self-assess their knowledge, watch tutorial videos, and so much more. Parents can work with their students at home and access the same tutorial videos, an invaluable resource for most parents. Pearson takes the classroom into the students' homes, giving them every resource needed to find success and mastery at school.

Inconvénients: In my experience, remedial materials are often still too difficult for students who are struggling the most. There are not enough remedial materials available at varying levels.

Commentaires: A decent platform for educators who enjoy a hands off approach, but if you are more involved you may want to opt more something else

Avantages: Pearson is convenient for both educators and students, with good integration between the grading side and the submission side

Inconvénients: The submission side (student) has a tendency to glitch and occasionally mark answers wrong when they are correct

Avantages: Pearson’s makes excellent interactive textbooks that accompany certain classes. Both the lessons and what’s online work very well together. There is also practice sections and study tools to help you grasp concepts you are learning.

Inconvénients: Don’t forget your login information because when you create an account for one class, no matter how long ago it was, that will be the same for any other class you take that is associated with this company.

Avantages: I am the LMS admin at a community college and I Love Pearson products. I deal with several 3rd party content publishers and Pearson is by far my favorite to work with. Their products integrate seamlessly with our LMS and their customer service and tech support is definitely the best in the field.

Inconvénients: I don't really have anything negative to say at this point.

Avantages: As a teacher, the software has helped me a lot in providing my students with formative assessments since it contains vast number of problems/tasks stored in the data base. Along with these problems, immediate feedbacks are provided which enable the user to monitor his/her progress. The software is user-friendly for both the administrator and the user.

Inconvénients: The software is rather costly especially if the courses that students are taking use different textbooks.

Commentaires: Overall, my personal experience Pearson Education has been positive. The support for educators and teachers generally helps with any problems.

Avantages: Pearson has been involved in my own education and continues to make useful tools for educators and their students. I'm impressed with the MyLab feature available through Pearson, a lot of students seems to enjoy using it and find it helpful for studying or reviewing. I find it particularly great for helping with mathematics.

Inconvénients: So far the functionality hasn't been an issue with Pearson products, however the pricing can be off-putting for some. I suppose "you get what you pay for" applies here, but is something to keep in mind before making decisions about products for students.

Commentaires: Our school corporation uses e-learning days in place of a snow day. Pearson Education allows students to continue their education at home without worrying about a forgotten textbook sitting in their locker.

Avantages: Some of the textbooks that our school uses are available through Pearson Education. With the advancements in technology and the shift from brick and mortar to virtual learning, Pearson online textbooks is the way to go.

Inconvénients: This software can sometimes be a little tricky to use. It is not 100% user friendly for adults let alone the 12 year olds in the classroom. This problem is solved with training.
