Meeting Student Needs with Day One Access to Digital Materials

The high cost of print textbooks has long been prohibitive for college students, many of whom delay or forgo purchasing their required texts due to price. Additionally, these books, with their static pages, lack inherent interactivity.

Digital course materials have emerged over the past 10 years as a cost-effective and more engaging option to print textbooks. This webcast will feature a college dean and eTextbooks thought leader who will discuss:

  • Why many students increasingly prefer eTextbooks
  • How delivering digital materials on the first day of classes sets students up for success
  • Tips for securing stakeholder buy-in for a digital-only program

Presenters:

  • Keri Cole, Dean of eLearning, Hinds Community College
  • Dr. Mike Hale, VP of Education, VitalSource
