Students desire cost savings and convenience. Faculty desire flexibility and academic freedom. But above all, everyone wants to see students succeed. Inclusive Access is transforming learning by enabling students to easily access affordable textbooks and more from the first day of class.
Prior to the Internet and eCommerce capabilities, college students had limited choices when it came to obtaining their textbooks: they either bought textbooks and course materials from the campus bookstore or they went without, the latter a somewhat unlikely choice given the relative affordability of textbooks in the past.
Fast forward to more recent history and, while most students can still buy from the campus bookstore, off-campus retailers like Amazon, eBay, and other platforms have captured more and more textbook sales by offering students lower prices and more convenient shopping options.
