If you are a current MindTap user, more than likely when you logged into your MindTap course at the beginning of this year you received a pop-up notification “A Holiday Gift from MindTap – Enjoy early access to a new MindTap dashboard.”
As of January 1, 2018, instructors can now opt-in to experience a new MindTap dashboard featuring 2 refined views that will streamline your course content into “Week” and “Outline” views.
The “Week” view shows by date which activities are due with each week of your course. The Outline View will organize content by unit or by chapters.
In addition, you will find “Edit Mode” which allows you to adjust multiple activities at the same time, hide multiple activities, adjust due dates, change the grading type and adjust the possible number of points for multiple activities at one time.
The new 2-view dashboard will become the default MindTap dashboard in Summer 2018.
