Today’s generation of students has grown up in a digital world. Students use technology in their personal lives to create, collaborate, and share information. Delivering educational content to students through their computers is a welcomed change. No more heavy backpacks. No more searching for used textbooks. No more standing in line to purchase new ones. No more overpriced textbooks. Must be why three quarters of student users thought Courseload was better than traditional textbooks.
The cost of textbooks has risen twice as fast as other costs in higher education. Research indicates that more than one-third of all students go without one or more textbooks each year, driving students, parents, faculty, and school leaders to actively look for ways to cut textbooks costs.
