APA Digital Learning and Digital Equity in Psychology Instruction

The American Psychological Association (APA) has created two digital learning tools informed by strong psychological science to promote digital equity, supporting psychology students and instructors across teaching environments. These tools provide affordable, high-quality instructional content on unique technology platforms that support success for all students, helping them meet learning standards and build lifelong learning skills.

PsycLearn® and Academic Writer® are particularly adaptable, easing the strain on psychology instructors if teaching must shift among face-to-face, hybrid, or online instruction. Delivered through the learning management system (LMS) used on your campus, PsycLearn and Academic Writer allow instructors to assign content, monitor student progress, and support students as they master course content and APA Style® research and writing.

PsycLearn
PsycLearn—a complete, all-digital instructional resource now available for Research Methods, Social Psychology, and Statistics courses—was designed to help psychology instructors immerse students in course content and provide a personalized learning experience. Structured around learning science research, PsycLearn enriches instruction across teaching environments to help students achieve critical learning outcomes for psychology majors. APA is continuing to develop PsycLearn content for additional courses.
Academic Writer
Recently updated with the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association seventh edition guidelines, Academic Writer offers a rich assortment of assignable quick guides and tutorials on APA Style, research, and writing fundamentals. A robust writing platform allows students to apply those skills as they independently compose research papers or collaborate on group projects. Academic Writer supports all students in courses that require APA Style with the tools to think and write like seasoned professionals.
