In my last post, I talked about how we at VitalSource are constantly reaching out to students in an effort to solicit feedback and understand challenges they face while reading their assignments or studying specific materials. Our solution to students faced with confusion over their homework was a new feature allowing for looking up content in Wikipedia.
When I was in school, I remember using World Book Encyclopedias when I wanted to do a quick browse on a topic. Over the years, with encycopedias moving online, this habit has moved to a quick Wikipedia search and review. Wikipedia is often the first or second web hit when using an online search engine. Accoring to Alexa Internet, Inc. and SimilarWeb (companies that track commercial web traffic data and analytics), Wikipedia was the fifth-most used website in 2016.
At VitalSource®, it is a priority for us to listen to our users and make our solutions as useful as possible to teaching and learning. That’s why we are excited to announce we have integrated with Microsoft OneNote to expand on our popular feature: Export your Notebook.
