Implementing an online bookstore to manage all of the course material logistics doesn’t mean it is necessary to get rid of the on-campus store. Campus stores can be a central location where students frequently gather to shop for spirit wear, grab coffee and snacks, and meet up with peers. Mitchell Technical Institute has partnered with us to manage their course materials while they focus on selling tools, spirit wear and other goods to support their programs, scholarships, and more.
When the online bookstore is launched, students at MTI, an innovative leader in technical education based in Mitchell, South Dakota will gain access to more personalized, efficient, and cost-effective course materials. Akademos integrates all course materials and delivery options into one platform with a vast selection of low-cost options including a Marketplace, rental program, and OER titles, plus the option to choose between new, used, or digital textbooks.
Not only will students be able to seamlessly order their course materials through the online bookstore, but they will be able to have their books shipped directly to the campus store for pick up. Picking up their books at the store on campus gives them the opportunity to shop around for dorm room supplies and other goods.
