“We are excited to partner with eCampus to bring digital and print course materials, access to online learning platforms, and open educational resources to our students in the fall." - Dr. Alyson Gill, Provost, University of the Ozarks
LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) April 08, 2019
eCampus.com ALL Access was selected as Ozarks' new course materials solution based on their cost-effective model and expansive access to both print and digital content. Beginning in fall 2019, the eCampus.com ALL Access program will provide Ozarks students with 100% of their required course materials at a significantly reduced cost, included in tuition. After students register for their courses, course materials are reserved and individually packaged for each student based on student schedule. Students will then pick up all materials before the first day of class in a convenient on-campus location. By providing course materials ahead of the first day of class, the ALL Access program ensures students are prepared for success while showing them the full cost of education up front.
The ALL Access program is part of the eCampus.com Course Material Solutions suite, which has helped over 200 institutions save more than $350 million on textbooks. The program was expanded in 2017 after the company acquired Rafter assets, further complementing eCampus.com’s existing one-price models for higher education. ALL Access makes it simple and affordable for students to get all the materials they need for their courses with a flat rate price. This reduced fee is factored directly into their tuition, creating a predictable expense and helping students combat the rising cost of textbooks, with savings up to 50%. Equally important, the program helps to increase student success by providing the course materials they need from Day 1. Faculty benefit from a streamlined adoption process that supports a comprehensive variety of content options, including print, digital, and open educational resources (OER).
“We are excited to partner with eCampus to bring digital and print course materials, access to online learning platforms, and open educational resources to our students in the fall,” said Dr. Alyson Gill, Provost for University of the Ozarks. “Students will also have the ability to have course materials delivered as rentals in print or digitally directly to their iPads as part of our Compass initiative. This program not only underscores our commitment to accessibility, it also lowers costs for our students and ensures that they have all of the materials that they need on the first day of class.”
“The ever-increasing cost of course materials demands an alternative approach to ensure students have the course content they need and are prepared for academic success from Day 1,” said Matt Montgomery, President and CEO of eCampus.com. “The eCampus.com ALL Access program is redefining how institutions are combating the frustrations of trying other textbook models and finding they don’t live up to expectations. ALL Access dramatically reduces course material costs for students, includes free shipping, streamlines adoptions for faculty, and ultimately drives academic outcomes. We are thrilled to welcome University of the Ozarks to the ALL Access program and applaud the University for making college affordability a priority for their students.”
