LEXINGTON, Ky. (PRWEB) April 17, 2019
Beginning in Summer 2019, Oglethorpe students will have access to an innovative online bookstore solution, serving all their course material needs with average savings up to 70% off publisher list prices. Oglethorpe selected eCampus.com Virtual Bookstores to help students obtain course materials at a significantly reduced cost, aligning with the university’s focus of providing an exceptional education at an affordable price. Beyond cost savings, students can take advantage of every purchasing option, including new, used, rental, eTextbook, and an expansive network of third-party Marketplace sellers, all through a streamlined and convenient ordering process.
Understanding the institution’s commitment to an optimal student experience, the eCampus.com platform will offer a seamless integration with Oglethorpe’s Student Information System, ensuring a user-friendly ordering process utilizing Single Sign-On (SSO). With SSO, the purchasing process is even more simplified as students can make purchases and use financial aid directly from their student portal. With this cohesive strategy, students will also enjoy the convenience of registration integration. When students register for courses, they will instantly see a personalized listing of required textbooks according to their schedule, along with the ability to purchase or rent the materials with the click of a button. Further complementing the solution is a superior customer support team available to answer student inquiries every step of the way.
Oglethorpe University faculty also benefit from the new eCampus.com solution with customized administrator training on the adoption submission process. The dedicated eCampus.com Management Team ensures an exemplary partnership, including desk copy delivery to faculty, bolstering confidence in best-fit content adoptions.
“At Oglethorpe, we’re constantly looking for ways to expand and improve the student experience,” said Michelle Hall, Vice President for Campus Life at Oglethorpe. “Partnering with eCampus will offer our students a textbook purchasing process that is affordable, convenient, and time-saving.”
