Willo Labs, the leading technology platform for digital learning delivery, and Elsevier, a global leader in research publishing and information analytics, today announced “DIRECT 2 STUDENT,” a new learning content delivery model combining instant digital learning access with doorstep delivery of print textbooks. The DIRECT 2 STUDENT model is offered exclusively through college campus bookstores, saving stores the cost of shipping and inventory management.

“We joined forces with Willo Labs to transform and modernize how students buy and receive their course materials,” said Jennette Sagraves, Manager, Channel Partners & GTM Strategy at Elsevier. “So many students are learning from home and need a better way to get their books and digital materials. With the Willo Labs technology, we’re giving students instant digital access and shipping their custom print book bundles to the address of their choice.”

“Cost savings and a simple delivery process are what today’s students expect and deserve,” added Kate McKain, President of Willo Labs. “And since 60% of students in the US need to use campus-based funds to pay for their materials, we’re especially proud that DIRECT 2 STUDENT gives them that option at a discount, through their local campus stores.”

The DIRECT 2 STUDENT program is launching at select campuses in January 2021, with full availability starting with Spring 2021 terms. Willo Labs is the distributor of DIRECT 2 STUDENT for US institutions.
