GMAT course upgrade: A new way to watch on-demand classes

Posted in Test Prep on December 17, 2010 by

We’re really excited to announce another big upgrade to our GMAT course! On top of the recent improvements we made to our content and reporting (oh yeah, and a brand new CAT), we are now rolling out a new on-demand class experience to all of our students.

Over the last few months, we heard from students that viewing classes on demand was giving them some trouble, so we created a custom video player to make some sweet improvements:

  • Improved layout: You get a bigger lesson area for easier viewing.
  • Easy navigation: A new progress tab lets you jump from section to section as you watch.
  • Even more help: A team teaching display gives you two Knewton teachers instead of one!

The first video we’ve released is Sentence Correction 1. You’ll find it marked with an asterisk (*) in the on-demand drop down menu. The rest of your lessons will become available in the new format in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

Check out the first lesson and let us know what you think by following the link to our survey from the video player! You can also watch the video below to get a sneak peak at one of these classes in action:

This is also the first feature of the course we created with mobile devices in mind, so the new video player is fully functional for those of you with iPads out there! Let us know your feedback and ideas, and watch this space for continued improvements!
