Results are in From Kaplan University–Harvard Business Publishing Collaboration
Last December, we shared the exciting news that Kaplan University was working with Harvard Business Publishing to help test student materials. Since then, Kaplan University has been serving as a beta site where Harvard Business Publishing’s newest interactive case studies are put to the (student) test.
Well, the results are in! The first materials test was recently completed in MT 450: Marketing Management, a course taught by Ted Alex. Three approaches to learning were tested: traditional textbook, traditional case studies, and new interactive case studies. The results revealed strong improvements in student learning and success rates in both case study options when compared to the traditional textbook approach.
“The interactive case studies allow students to do more exploring in real-world scenarios,” said Dr. Tom Boyd, Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Due to the strong student success results, the School of Business and Management will be testing additional Harvard Business Publishing materials and learning innovations in the coming year.
