Thomson Higher Ed., Aplia Align for Econ. Solution

Thomson Higher Education and Aplia Inc. have formed an alliance to help students better prepare for economics lessons outside of the classroom. The solution, which combines Thomson South-Western economics books with Aplia’s auto-graded student assignments, online experiments and course management tools, allows students to study key concepts on their own time.

The new integrated program enables teachers to access a large library of assignments, create announcements, manage grades and print performance reports. The new economic solution will be available for the fall semester. For more information, visit
