Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article reviews five course platforms for mathematics, "one traditional course platform, two mastery-based learning platforms, and two just-in-time learning platforms." It also provides an overview of seven homework platforms in the same subject. Four of the five course platforms contain an ebook, while the last one is linked to a stand-alone book. By contrast, only one of the homework platforms (zyBooks) is tied to a book. "The usage data shows that these homework-only platforms, though newer than the textbook publisher platforms, are starting to gain popularity on many collegiate campuses." The reviews are comprehensive and cover a lot of ground; readers may want to translate them into a big chart on a whiteboard (one wonders if this is how the article was originally constructed).
