Concept
Coach

At Rice University, we have a team focused on embedding technology into our OpenStax textbooks to improve student learning outcomes. This free tool, called Concept Coach, will be embedded in the web view of OpenStax’s college textbooks. As students read, they will be asked questions to reinforce their understanding of the content. Concept Coach automatically incorporates proven cognitive science principles — spaced practice, retrieval practice, and feedback — to increase students' long-term retention. Concept Coach is designed to easily integrate into a professor's existing workflow and is not a replacement for traditional or online homework.
