Students Struggling to Access the Right Technology? We Can Help.

Offering Dell technology through the Akademos course materials platform provides options for low-income and remote students

Working closely with our partner schools, we have seen that having the right materials at affordable prices doesn’t just mean textbooks and other course materials. If students lack the right technology - laptops, software, dependable internet access - they can struggle just as much as they would without course materials. This is especially true for students in rural areas and low-income families who don’t have the resources to buy their own or travel to school or the library to use technology labs. Add a global pandemic on top of that and you have a whole new subset of students who may not be able to get to campus for class, never mind the campus store or library. Integrating Dell offerings directly into the online bookstore has provided much needed support and accessibility for all students. You may say, what is the big deal about offering technology through an online bookstore? Isn’t that a given? For Akademos, it’s not just about what is offered, but why. And more importantly, how can we assure everyone who needs it, gets it.
