The K20 Center supports instructors to effectively integrate Advance U: The TALENT Machine into their classrooms by providing full implementation support, tiered technical support, and a handy “Instructor’s Guide” that will:
In addition to integration support, the K20 Center’s GamePortal allows Instructors to view each individual student’s progress, time on scenarios as well as success/failure indicators.
