Includes the following features

  • Learn Inside the Application!

    You heard that right. Our innovative In-App Functionality allows students to learn directly within the actual program. MSi courses provide comprehensive step-by-step written and animated instructions to guide them along. What better way to learn than by doing? This is not a tedious video lecture course. Students won’t be watching along as someone else uses the software. MSi allows them to drive in the actual software. We believe this is a more engaging and effective way to learn.

  • E-textbook

    Each course includes a complete e-textbook. The topics are chunked and embedded. Ideal for informing discussions or assigning homework.

  • Read-Along

    Listen - a read-along feature designed to support auditory learners is available in every course. This feature is available at the top of every topic page. Simply click on the "play" icon and start listening.

  • Comprehensive Grade Book

    Save valuable time by eliminating the need to create additional lessons. All MSi courses generate grades automatically from students as they complete knowledge checks, practice activities, quizzes, and projects. These grades are automatically entered into the MSi LMS (Learning Management System). You can easily import these grades into your district's grade book.

  • Assessments to Track Progress

    Easily measure your students learning gains and identify any knowledge gaps. At the beginning of every chapter, there is a pre-assessment. Once students have completed the chapter there will be a post-assessment. You’ll see these scores immediately so you can proceed accordingly.

  • Focus Mode

    To make it easier to concentrate, MSi offers a Focus Mode. This tool removes elements on the page that can be distracting. We’ve found this feature to be very helpful, particularly for visual learners.

  • Animated Instructions

    Each course includes animated instructions allowing students to see each step of a lesson as they are working - a helpful reference tool.

  • Course Completion Badge

    Share accomplishments! Upon completion of the course with a grade of 80% or higher, students are eligible for a course completion badge that is designed to be displayed on LinkedIn and other social media channels.

  • Course Completion Certificate

    Showcase success! After completion of the course with a grade of 80% or higher, students are eligible for a printable course completion certificate.
