Helping You Go from Current State to Future State

Navigating the Digital Migration

The pivot to a digital course materials strategy for institutions can be scary, overwhelming and hard to do if the institution is entrenched in the old ways. The happy, positive experts at Ed Map care deeply about your school and your students’ success! We partner with you to bring affordable and engaging course materials to your students. It’s what we do.

Strategic Planning

Ed Map is your guide to successfully transitioning your campus from print to digital so your community can thrive in the digital world. Our content strategy consists of the following steps:

  • Working with you to devise and implement a course materials strategy to fulfill your institution’s goals
  • Studying your current course materials processes and workflows to identify gaps and inefficiencies
  • Providing a thorough review of your current selection, acquisition and distribution processes, staff and vendors
  • Helping you manage the relationships between content owners and institutional stakeholders
  • Helping you identify, segment and phase in student cohorts that are good candidates for digital and open resources
  • Offering training and educational hands-on workshops for your institution

Our Business Model: Platform as a Service (PaaS)

To better align with the interests of our customers to keep course materials affordable, Ed Map has introduced a revolutionary new business model for distributing course materials. Rather than marking up the price of books and digital course materials, Ed Map now provides OPENVUE® Platform as a Service (PaaS), which separates the cost of content from the true costs of providing the course materials and related services to institutions and students.

Students win from lower costs of course materials. Institutions benefit from predictable costs based only on services used. Faculty maintains academic freedom while helping students save money. Everybody enjoys the efficiency of OPENVUE’s integration with campus systems for management, distribution, analytics and reporting.
