SaplingPlus—technology that offers the best value and price. Because students’ needs are changing, our most powerful learning option is now also our most affordable. SaplingPlus is a new digital solution that supports students and instructors at each stage in the learning path, from pre-class to in-class and post-class.

A richer commitment to broadening students’ understanding of the global economy.
