Follett, DubLabs Partner to Ease Access to Course Materials
Follett has partnered with DubLabs in an effort to make it easier for students to access course materials.
As a result of the partnership, students at schools that work with both companies will have access to a link in their campus app that provides one-click shopping access to all of their required course materials.
"Clicking the Buy Books link in the campus app redirects students to a pre-populated shopping cart on the campus store's eFollett.com website where they can select from digital, used and text rental options as well as apply financial aid funds, where available," according to a press release.
"Our goal is to meet students where they are and provide a seamless path to purchase the materials needed for academic success," said Roe McFarlane, Follett Higher Education Group's chief digital officer, in a prepared statement. "With this integration and Follett's broader suite of digital solutions, we're able to deliver personalized access to shop course materials from the course catalog, student information system, learning management system and now the local campus mobile app."
