When we speak with prospective clients or work with academic peers, they often tell us their top goal is to lower costs for students. Yet when we dive deeper into what students’ average cost is today and what their objective is, they are often unaware of their current metrics and don’t have a crisp definition of success.
Using a course materials strategy to improve academic performance and financial stability
We are excited to share our newest partnership with Eastern Mennonite University! EMU is working hard to help support students both academically and financially in this rapidly changing educational environment. The private liberal arts university in Virginia, historically known for its commitment to educating leaders who value peace, justice, and intercultural engagement, will bring additional long-term benefits to students through our course materials platform. The new online bookstore is set to launch to support the summer 2021 term.
For twenty years, we have focused on reinventing the higher education bookstore model. From developing the first used book marketplace and accepting financial aid for all book types, to preparing schools for the transition to digital and integrating with OER based adaptive courseware, we have made it our mission to provide students with easy access to affordable course materials. 2020 has shown us that students require a state-of-the-art online bookstore and course materials platform. Technology is a necessity now more than ever.
Giving students seamless access to low-cost print and digital textbooks
We are thrilled to announce our newest partnership with Emory & Henry College, a private liberal arts institution in Emory, Va., the oldest institution of higher learning in Southwest Virginia, devoted to transforming lives and increasing excellence. E&H has selected Akademos as its partner to launch its new online bookstore and course materials platform. Beginning this spring, students will benefit from the convenience and substantial cost-savings of ordering and accessing course materials online.
Offering greater accessibility and significant savings for books and merchandise to the university community
We are thrilled to announce our newest partnership with Cardinal Stritch University, a Franciscan values-driven university in Milwaukee, WI committed to continuously encouraging academic excellence and growth among students, staff and faculty. Stritch has selected Akademos as its partner in developing an online store for merchandise and course materials. This partnership will give their students, alumni, and greater university community access to a vast selection of low-cost textbooks and Stritch-branded apparel and merchandise through a personalized online ordering platform. The new online store and course materials platform has launched to support the spring 2021 semester.
