CourseSmart, Pearson eCollege Team Up To Provide Digital Materials
CourseSmart and Pearson eCollege have partnered to provide more than 20,000 electronic textbooks, custom products, and other digital materials through a single sign on.
All the titles are available through Pearson's learning management system, Pearson LearningStudio, with no implementation fee.
Pearson LearningStudio, delivered as software-as-a-service, is an online learning platform that allows instructors to provide students with content and the ability to communicate and collaborate inside and outside the classroom. It also features assessment and analysis tools for improving retention, identifying at-risk students, and managing learning outcomes.
CourseSmart provides electronic textbooks and digital course materials for higher education institutions. Their electronic texts offer students the ability to print, search, copy, and paste.
As part of the new partnership, students will be able to access course materials instantly through Pearson LearningStudio and faculty can access adopted texts for review or evaluation online. Bulk purchases are also possible through the LMS.
