Each course features professor-reviewed content paired with multimedia elements, self-assessments, discussions and other activities. Integrated analytics allow instructors to track overall course engagement, individual student engagement, progress and success.

In addition, the company has launched a new mobile application, BearTracks, that allows students to access any Perceivant course via iOS or Android mobile device. Students can complete and submit self-assessments, view instructional videos, receive assignment reminders and other notifications, track coursework history and more, all through the app.

The new courses are currently available for faculty review and for adoption in the spring 2018 semester. For more information, visit the Perceivant site.
