North Central University Launches Digital Initiative, Reducing Textbook Costs

North_Central_University_logoMinneapolis-based North Central University is moving their online bookstore to Akademos! Our newest partnership with the private, non-profit Christian university will tackle rising textbook costs and equip faculty with course-level analytics on student engagement. Named #13 in U.S. News & World Report’s list of Top Performers on Social Mobility, North Central University today announced the launch of a new initiative designed to dramatically reduce the cost and increase the accessibility of course content for its 1,100 students.

“With the high price of college textbooks continuing to inflate the overall cost of the degree, the digital transformation of course content remains one of the most powerful levers available to institutions to improve affordability and student outcomes,” said Raj Kaji, CEO of Akademos. “This initiative will support student success on multiple fronts because it extends far beyond just offering content and resources in a digital format. It’s about empowering faculty and administrators with digital resources of their own to better understand, track and support student engagement.”
