Do you feel like your students are over-reliant on the homework system? CengageNOWv2 is designed to better prepare students for the exam by providing an online homework experience that is similar to what students will experience on an exam and in the real-world.  During this session, you will see some of the exciting new upgrades we are working on for CengageNOWv2 – including the new Multi-Panel View, Blank Sheet of Paper Experience, and Adaptive Feedback.
