An increasingly tech-savvy student population, intensified scrutiny on institutions to improve student retention and success, and a costly textbook model that is far short of optimal are consistently challenging traditional methods of teaching and learning. The burden falls to institutional leaders to drive down costs while also improving the quality of education.
Incorporating eTextbooks, while a great first step to easing the rising cost of higher education, only scratches the surface of what is possible. A bigger opportunity exists to truly transform the educational experience by addressing the core challenges facing higher education:
- Improving faculty and student engagement around all course content through a common toolset
- Enhancing pedagogy through the delivery of rich content
- Creating the conditions for the lowest cost on proprietary eTextbooks through aggregated demand
- Allowing instructors to supplement traditional course materials with low-cost alternatives, such as open educational resources and faculty-generated content
- Enabling immediate access to all course materials to support full-term learning
- Assisting with student retention and success efforts via current reading and engagement analytics
