The Student Experience

Everything—from the initial login to the final assessment—is designed with the student in mind. Students receive lifetime access to the tools they need to achieve academic excellence.

Hawkes Learning’s user-friendly interface allows students to focus less on navigating the program and more on mastering the course content. A Virginia Tech student said, “The interface is really user-friendly and easy to use. I have used plenty of other online learning systems for other classes and I can honestly say I prefer Hawkes by a landslide.”

Student Dashboard

The courseware encourages students’ time-management skills right after they log in with a to-do list. This list displays assignments that are due or overdue. Students just need to select the assignment name directly from the list to start their work. Additionally, a red notification pops up in the top right corner alerting students to looming assignment deadlines.


The Learning Path

Once students select an assignment, they are greeted with the Learning Path. This path has three modes:

Learn offers a multimedia-rich presentation of the lesson content. It includes concept builders, animations, instructional videos, and interactive skill checks.

Practice engages students with algorithmically generated problems and intelligent tutoring in an ungraded, penalty-free environment.

Certify requires students to demonstrate mastery of the material at a defined proficiency level without access to tutoring aids.

The Learning Path includes Learn, Practice, and Certify modes.

This learning path operates on Hawkes Learning’s mastery-based approach. Our method to mastery promotes positive, active learning and adapts to each student’s needs through algorithmically generated questions and tutorials. Students gain a holistic understanding of the course content, meaning that if students do well on their homework, they’re going to see positive results come test time.

The courseware’s unique tools also include:

  • Explain Error – Get precise feedback from the system’s artificial intelligence, which anticipates and diagnoses specific errors.
  • Interactive Tutor – Break down questions with guided, step-by-step tutorials and detailed explanations.

A student from Riverland Community College – Austin Campus claimed that Hawkes Learning “is helping me learn better by having that tutor option and showing a step-by-step option as well. I will be using this for as long as I can.”

Practice Tests

Students can create practice tests to better prepare for their assigned tests. With these practice tests, students select which topics to cover, how many questions to answer, and an optional time frame to complete the test. After students finish, they receive a breakdown of demonstrated competency to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses on a per-topic basis. Students can jump into the specific lessons that need more review directly from this personalized feedback.
