Cengage Learning Integrates Free Digital Portfolio Access into MindTap

Provides students lifetime access to Pathbrite ePortfolio capabilities


BOSTON, Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cengage Learning announced today the integration of the Pathbrite digital portfolio app into MindTap, Cengage Learning's flagship learning platform.  Automatically available to more than one million MindTap users this fall, the integration grants current students free lifetime access to a Pathbrite digital portfolio.

The app allows students to showcase evidence of what they have created and mastered through an interactive cloud-based platform.  Lifetime access allows students to update their ePortfolios beyond their classroom experience, giving them increased ownership over their accomplishments.

"In today's competitive job market, digital portfolios differentiate students by demonstrating what they have learned beyond a static resume or transcript," said Jim Donohue, Chief Product Officer at Cengage Learning.  "From digital badges to presentations and business plans, ePortfolios offer evidence of abilities and experience.  We are pleased to provide a tool that enriches the relationship between educators, students and employers."

Cengage Learning acquired Pathbrite in October 2015 to extend the company's student-centric, competency-based learning capabilities.  Incorporated into MindTap, which is proven to increase engagement and improve outcomes, Pathbrite will encourage students to build an inventory of learning and life achievements as they progress in their education and careers.   

"Using Pathbrite in the classroom has helped my students become more astute in their digital abilities," said Sandra Owen, Professor and Early Childhood Education Program Chair at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.  "They are able to monitor their progress as they collect and store artifacts of their work.  This integration allows students to focus on learning while they simultaneously build a portfolio of achievements."  

Through personalized learning paths and dynamic assignments, MindTap helps students develop critical thinking skills.  Students who spend at least three hours in MindTap each week are twice as likely to get 90% or above on their assignments.  Learn more at http://www.cengage.com/mindtap/.
