Akademos webinar on decreasing textbook prices & increasing student success materials now available

Posted by Ariane Rasmussen on June 26, 2017

Last week’s well-attended webinar, City Colleges of Chicago’s Formula for Decreasing Textbook Prices and Increasing Student Success – Revolutionizing the Course Materials Adoption Process, received a lot of positive feedback from attendees.

The session provided a first-hand look into how CCC students have saved over $9.5 million off course material list prices since Fall 2014, through best practices and innovative tools that:

  • Dramatically improved on-time adoptions
  • Increased the number of students ordering before the first day of class
  • Significantly lowered textbook prices for students

Participants found the live case study on how changes in the adoption process, new policies, and a new software platform played a large role in addressing textbook affordability and student preparedness, engaging and highly informative.

This interactive discussion was led by expert panelists Jonathan Keiser, PhD, Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Educational Quality of City Colleges of Chicago (CCC); Autym Henderson, Academic Affairs Specialist of CCC and John Squires, CEO of Akademos.

The presentation and session recording of the webinar are now available to you and your institution for free.
