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.

But what’s the right mix? For Ed Map, it’s about balancing the course materials equation in a way that’s best for your institution.

The Right Mix For You

Because One Size Does Not Fit All

Ed Map helps internal and external stakeholders determine the right mix of course materials from a variety of formats and sources. Because course materials, like education itself, are not “one-size-fits-all.”

We understand that every institution is different. That’s why we work closely with you to develop a course materials strategy that addresses your institution’s specific goals and objectives.  If you are interested in moving away from costly print texts, enhancing your usage of digital material, or moving toward freely available Open Educational Resources, we can help.

Our expertise in digital migration, our contacts in the traditional publishing industry, and our co-located warehouse work together to meet you where you are while simultaneously helping get you where you want to be.  And we make a point to address necessary change management activities, including education, training, technology, and expertise, to help students, faculty, and administrators leverage the implementation of your new course materials strategy.

With our expertise, experience, and connections, Ed Map makes it easy for you to meet the unique needs of your institution.

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.
