Chapter quiz

Brief multiple-choice review quizzes for students to test their knowledge of what they’ve just read and studied. Questions are also available for instructors to mix, match, and create their own quizzes.


Readings (text)

Boxes from past editions of The Film Experience are collected on the LaunchPad Solo, giving students access to an archive of additional possible reading assignments. The LaunchPad Solo also includes summaries of key concepts for each chapter, for easy studying and review.


Videos (no assessment)

The Film Experience includes several video essays that elaborate on topics covered in the print book, as well as a sample video essay.


Videos with questions

Dozens of clips from real movies are available for assignment and discussion, complete with critical thinking questions written by the authors of the book. These clips include Viewing Cues, which focus on individual aspects such as editing, cinematography, and sound; Film in Focus, which go further in-depth on a particularly important film; and Form in Action, corresponding to boxes of the same name in the printed book. The LaunchPad Solo includes new clips for all of these categories while maintaining all of the clips used in the previous edition.
