Dynamic content designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn
Integrated within the narrative, theory and concepts are brought to life through interactives and videos created to empower students to engage with concepts, and take an active role in learning. Revel's media interactives have been designed to be completed quickly, and videos are brief, so students stay focused and on task.
Revel's quizzing, integrated throughout as well as at the end of each module, provides students opportunities to check their understanding at regular intervals before moving on.
Revel's writing functionality, available in select courses, enables educators to integrate writing—among the best ways to foster and assess critical thinking—into the course without significantly impacting their grading burden. Self-paced Journaling Prompts throughout the narrative encourage students to express their thoughts without breaking stride in their reading. Assignable Shared Writing Activities direct students to share written responses with classmates, fostering peer discussion.
Highlighting, note taking, and a glossary let students customise their reading and studying experience. Instructors can add notes for students too, including reminders or study tips.
For courses in Java Programming.
Revel™ Introduction to Java Programming and Data Structures seamlessly integrates programming, data structures, and algorithms into one text. With a fundamentals-first approach, the text builds a strong foundation of basic programming concepts and techniques before teaching students object-oriented programming and advanced Java programming. Liang explains programming in a problem-driven way that focuses on problem solving rather than syntax, illustrating basic concepts by example and providing a large number of exercises with various levels of difficulty for students to practice. Revel Introduction to Java Programming and Data Structures engages students at the point of learning, which leads to a deeper understanding of the course material.
