Why Bookshelf CoachMe?

It’s simple: doing practice causes learning.
Based on Learning Science
Through years of research, our learning science team replicated the causal relationship that Learn by Doing, and the Doer Effect have on learning. As online education continues to evolve and accelerate, research-based approaches like this pave the way to create learning experiences that help students succeed.
AI Done Right
The thoughtful integration of AI optimises individual learning journeys and contributes to a more effective and engaging educational environment, aligning with VitalSource's commitment to advancing learning through innovative and evidence-based practices.
Award Winning
Bookshelf CoachMe is the industry’s leading AI tool for learners. In 2023, CoachMe was awarded a Codie Award for Best Use of AI in Ed Tech and the 1EdTech Silver Learning Impact Award. Join us in celebrating these milestones as we continue to transform digital learning and empower educational success.

Prepare, Practice, Focus

Practice makes perfect. Bookshelf CoachMe’s AI-generated practice questions and knowledge checks are located in the margins and at the end of the chapter, allowing students to practice as they read. Practising has about six times the effect on learning than reading—that’s called the Doer Effect, a learning science principle.

Note: Bookshelf CoachMe’s practice questions and end-of-chapter knowledge checks are created by VitalSource’s proprietary AI technology and are part of the Bookshelf learning platform.


How Does Bookshelf CoachMe Work

Practice Questions

Students are prompted to answer practice questions while reading their Bookshelf etext.  Active learning through embedded practice creates the Doer Effect. Bookshelf CoachMe helps students study fast and study smart.

Knowledge Checks

At the end of each chapter, students answer summative knowledge checks to determine what they know. Our research (1) analysed data from courseware being used at a major four-year public university. The analysis showed a correlation between the amount of practice students did and their summative quiz scores. The more practice students did, the better their learning outcomes were.

Immediate Feedback

Students have access to immediate feedback on both their practice questions and knowledge checks and can retake any question, better preparing them for class and exams. Our research (1,2) proved the impact of the Doer Effect on a final exam and shows that the effects of doing practice increase learning gains even when the assessment takes place long after the initial learning.
