Educators Learn How to Use eBook Data to Better Understand, Engage and Support Students

The innovator in course materials management and content integration programs since 1973, Ambassador engineers, develops and implements bookstore and technology solutions of all sizes.

"Based on our experience implementing eBook programs at colleges and universities around the country, we've seen first-hand how the accompanying analytics can help educators better engage and support students," said Schneider.

Ambassador Education Solutions, the innovator in course materials and content integration programs, continues its thought leadership sessions on eBook analytics, this time presenting at the MAPCCS/KAPCCS Fall Conference. Ambassador has been invited to lead "The Power of eBook Analytics: Lowering Costs, Maximizing Personalization and Improving Outcomes" on Friday, October 16th.

"Based on our experience implementing eBook programs at colleges and universities around the country, we've seen first-hand how the accompanying analytics can help educators better engage and support students," said Bruce Schneider, Director of Business Engineering at Ambassador. "Being able to understand exactly how, when and to what extent students are using eBooks gives educators the visibility they need to monitor and measure student achievement, while advancing the education experience to meet the needs of today's learners."

Ambassador will explore the data analytics that are available as part of an eBook program, including the ways students engage with their eBooks as part of the learning process. Attendees will learn how to apply this information as part of their support and retention practices in order to proactively increase student outreach and improve learning outcomes.

In addition to delivering print textbooks, Ambassador has extensive experience building and managing eBook programs, providing alternative or supplemental access to digital content directly through a school's LMS. Ambassador customizes a plan for each school depending on its preferences and student demographics. Options include giving students a choice between an eBook and a print textbook; automatically providing an eBook with the option to exchange; offering only an eBook; or other models as appropriate. Students can also access a low-cost, professionally produced Print-on-Demand version to accompany an eBook. Ambassador's customized reports allow educators to collect and review eBook usage data, empowering them to identify trends, predict outcomes and support success.

For 35 years, MAPCCS/KAPCCS has been educating private, career colleges about trends, regulatory changes and accreditation. Its Fall Conference provides sector leaders, decision makers and key staff with access to information and insight that impacts their schools.
