Global education company Cengage Learning has announced the expansion of its EMEA-specific interactive learning programme MindTap, adding to its existing 450-strong range of customisable, cloud-based online courses with two new titles.
These new EMEA MindTap courses accompany two market leading titles in their respective fields. Management and Cost Accounting by Colin Drury, and Economics by N. Gregory Mankiw and Mark P. Taylor are widely used across higher education institutions (HEIs) on management accounting and introductory economics courses.
Now its ninth edition, Drury’s Management and Cost Accounting has been widely recognised as the definitive text on management and cost accounting for over 25 years. Drury has been praised for providing balanced coverage of both the theory and practice of management accounting. This comprehensive text is used by students on one- and two-year courses, on professional accounting courses and by students taking cost and management accounting for the first time at postgraduate level.
'While both these subjects have global appeal, it is hugely beneficial to students and lecturers to have local content and assets related to the UK and EMEA markets,' said Andrew Robinson, director of higher education at Cengage Learning, EMEA.
'We know that there is significant demand and room for innovation in this area. Digital solutions such as these are great propositions for higher education institutions because they address the needs of both instructor and student. Academics are better able to track progress and ensure the best possible outcomes and attainment for their students, while students themselves can move beyond simply being learners to becoming strategic thinkers.
'The launch of these titles is particularly timely given the increased focus on accountability in the UK as students demand better feedback and results.'
