Continuing Innovation in Teaching and Learning
Continuing its longstanding reputation for innovation in teaching and learning, Drexel Undergraduate Nursing has launched a cutting edge e-book initiative in collaboration with Elsevier, the leader in health sciences publishing.
Beginning in fall quarter 2010, all nursing texts will utilize an on-line interactive learning platform that blends content and technology. All required nursing e-books are downloadable to your personal computer and easily accessible both on-line and off-line anywhere - anytime.
With Evolve e-books from Elsevier, you have easy access to all of your nursing textbooks, interactive media and support materials 24/7. Integrated social networking capabilities also enable “connecting” with classmates and faculty in a collaborative learning environment that makes learning more effective, enjoyable, and engaging.
