The newest feature in Bookshelf, Bookshelf CoachMe, is a free, built-in study coach that provides embedded practice throughout the etext, offering “in the moment” learner engagement and low-stakes confirmation of the material. Students prepare, practice, and focus all in one place and show up to class confident and ready to learn.
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. Practicing 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.
Access Bookshelf CoachMe for free in thousands of titles in Bookshelf. There is no training necessary for instructors, students, technology teams, or administrators. It’s the Bookshelf you know and love, just better.
