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

“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
