“With Vantage, I set up my course in under 10 minutes, which is unheard of...And it benefitted students, they did all the right things in all the right places. I love Vantage!” 

Karin Machluf, Instructor
Penn State Scranton

“What I most like about Vantage is that my students are coming into class prepared… Student performance after implementing Vantage is incredible. It used to be out of 40 or 50 students, I had 4 or 5 A’s… and now instead of having that bulk of grades in the C’s, they’re in the A’s. We know that reading increases performance, but this is a really tangible way to see that.” 

Karen Deeming, Instructor
Merced College

My learners really enjoyed the SAGE Vantage experience. Many of them said it forced them to read, which aided in their comprehension…The feedback I received is that they all really enjoyed the interactive nature of the program, as well as the [number] of activities…”
