Invigorate learning with the Enhanced Pearson eText
The Enhanced Pearson eText provides a rich, interactive learning environment designed to improve student mastery of content with the following multimedia features:

  • Listen to Learn audio overviews of chapter content in the Pearson eText illustrate why the design step is important to include by describing how it improves the instructional product. (See pages 25, 71, 136, and 160 for examples.)
  • Check Your Understanding of chapter content. Exercises matched to chapter learning outcomes help readers apply the concepts and ensure that they master the learning outcomes. Exercises and suggested feedback are provided in the Pearson eText. (See pages 4, 35, 64, and 168 for examples.) 
  • End of Chapter Assessments. Embedded assessments with feedback help students review new terms and concepts and encourage reflection and discussion on the issues of the chapter. These are presented within the Pearson eText as interactive quizzes. (See pages 25, 111, and 311 for examples.)

Students can experience the advantages of the Enhanced Pearson eText along with all the benefits of print for 40% to 50% less than a print bound book! Instructors, visit to register for your digital examination copy.

Additional text features include:

  • Chapter opening scenarios featuring dialogue between designers and others on the issues and challenges of the design steps and topics of the chapter put readers in touch with the rationale for why chapter concepts are important to learn.
  • Example design projects showing what student-designers might produce at each step in their design are presented in the Pearson eText and the Instrutor's Manual.
  • Design tips for creating and/or using resources such as podcasts/vodcasts, social media, and apps
  • Steps and criteria for producing effective hypermedia, audio/video, and web-based materials
  • Recommendations for designing learning environments ranging from traditional, in-person classrooms to completely online or virtual courses
  • Design principles and criteria for online and blended strategies ranging from the flipped-classroom model to MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses)
  • End-of-chapter summaries help students review the main ideas in each chapter.
  • Clickable keywords appear throughout the Pearson eText , providing definitions on demand.
