With Vantage, I set up my course in under 10 minutes, which is unheard of...And it benefitted students, they did all the right things in all the right places. I love Vantage!”

“I think that Vantage [is] an ideal system that will promote engagement of students.

Linda Trautman, Political Science
Ohio University

“What I most like about Vantage is that my students are coming into class prepared… Student performance after implementing Vantage is incredible. It used to be out of 40 or 50 students, I had 4 or 5 A’s… and now instead of having that bulk of grades in the C’s, they’re in the A’s. We know that reading increases performance, but this is a really tangible way to see that.”

Karen Deeming, Instructor
Merced College

“I am really excited to have tools that help motivate students to actually do the reading…”

Emily Hopkins, Psychology
University of Scranton

“...Really going to deepen students’ understanding and...boost their comprehension.
