Enhance Your Online Courses

MyCourseTools is a dynamic online library of more than 36,000 digital assets that will energize your online content, engage your students, and enhance the learning experiences of any online, hybrid, or web-enhanced course. All assets are 100% Pearson-owned, which means no extra royalty fees, and no time spent waiting for rights and permission research to be completed.

The wide variety of media forms a rich palette of active learning experiences allowing an institution to effectively address many different learning styles. The simulations, videos, animations, figures, virtual labs, interactive tutorials, podcasts, and documents provide a unique resource for course developers. Access to the assets in this interactive and searchable site can be available via institutional annual license fee, unique customer portal, or an enrollment-based agreement.

The taxonomy is straightforward with assets tagged by discipline, course, topic, asset type, asset title, and keyword. Navigation is user-friendly, icons are explained by subtitles, and the learning curve is short.

MyCourseTools contains a continually expanding breadth of content that can enhance courses at all educational levels.

MyCourseTools is interactive. Using a site-provided personal page and workspace, course designers can:

  • Browse by discipline, course, topic, asset type, and asset title
  • Navigate and search easily
  • Search within each discipline by asset type, asset title, and keyword
