Michael Lafreniere, a long-time WebAssign user and math professor, recently presented at the EdMedia 2016 Conference in Vancouver, BC. He showcased his research on ways to improve mathematical proficiency through computer-mediated communication which led him to develop a set of best practices involving digital inking to engage students. Read on to learn more on this topic and read his full paper on findings and results.

As part of the WebAssign Sabbatical Program, Dr. Anne Triplett, a professor of mathematics at the University of Mount Union, has written a collection of sports-themed math questions in WebAssign. At the heart of her sabbatical project is getting students, who are generally not interested in mathematics, involved by using sports to make math fun. These questions are meant to teach basic skills in statistics and hopefully provide students with more relevant content to increase engagement.
