The Right Mix for You

Find Your Perfect Blend of Digital and Print

Solving the Course Materials Equation

Learning is supported by a variety of course materials — materials that are sometimes digital, sometimes adaptive, and sometimes supplements to a great lecture by a great teacher. A multiverse of digital course material options like eTextbooks or freely available Open Educational Resources (OER) connects students to course content in new and exciting ways.

The benefits of digital course materials are undeniable. They include the opportunity to provide learner-centered, customizable and up-to-date content on or before the first day of class, as well as offering students an affordable choice. This just makes sense.

But what’s the right mix? For you and Ed Map, it’s about balancing the course materials equation in a way that’s right for you!

The Right Mix for You

Because One Size Does Not Fit All

We help stakeholders in higher education (students, faculty, institutions and the companies that serve them) figure out the right mix of course materials from a variety of sources and in a variety of formats. In the end, course materials, like education itself, are not “one-size-fits-all.”

In a world where content is becoming increasingly digital and the traditional supply chain is disrupted, it’s important to think about course materials beyond the traditional paradigm of textbooks written by faculty, produced by a publisher and available for a high price in the campus bookstore.

Ed Map saw this change coming and we’re uniquely positioned to help you migrate to digital with the right mix. We make it easy for higher ed institutions to capitalize on all of the market dynamics and bring affordable and accessible course materials to their students. It’s what we do.

We understand that every institution is different. That’s why we work closely with every client to develop a custom digital migration strategy that addresses each institution’s specific goals and objectives. And we make it a point to address necessary change management activities, including education, training, technology and expertise, to help your students, faculty and staff enjoy the benefits of digital tools, while successfully navigating the digital migration.

With our expertise, experience and connections, Ed Map makes it easy for you to take the first step toward digital. Even a small step is a step forward!

Why Transition to Digital?

The benefits of digital course materials include:

Reading Analytics. Using eTextbooks’ reader analytics, faculty can more easily identify and assist struggling students. Faculty and administrators can also use data to evaluate the efficacy of learning materials.

Digital Literacy. Working with digital materials strengthens students’ digital literacy, an important 21st century skill.

Immediate Access. With no delays in getting course materials, students can engage with course content on or before day one.

Seamless Integrations. The provisioning process is streamlined by connecting with institutions’ SIS, LMS, financial aid and business intelligence systems. Similar processes — including Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integrations — expedite access to resources.

Social Engagement. Students interact with faculty and peers using collaborative tools.

Faculty Choice. When you go digital, faculty retain their academic freedom to select the course materials for their class. We support your transition by working with publisher partners to fulfill faculty adoptions in digital formats.

Student Choice. Ed Map’s OPENVUE® platform provides options to students who aren’t yet fully comfortable with digital. For example, they can upgrade to print or can select an inexpensive Print-on-Demand (POD) companion to the digital book. OPENVUE® also enables students to opt out of its All-In Model (AIM)® in compliance with DOE regulations.
