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.
