Digital textbook platforms are solutions for accessing vital reading list content. Textbooks and courseware can be difficult for some students to access regularly, negatively impacting their academic performance. Platforms like BibliU are designed to help your students succeed by providing easy access to digital textbooks and content — while still providing a steady return on investment for your universities and library.
These digital platforms may include automated workflow capabilities, as well as centralised dashboards for purchasing. BibliU, for example, contains a purchasing portal with access to the entire bibliography, pricing, and licensing models for instant procurement and deployment. This makes it easy for you to choose, purchase, and deploy new titles quickly.
For students, digital textbook platforms make course materials more accessible. These textbooks are available for download via the platform, helping your students save money on spending for course materials. This can also translate to savings for your university. For example, you can save 30-50% on high usage titles with BibliU.
BibliU has flexible pricing models that can work to help you save money. BibliU’s On Demand Learning solution provides a “pay-per-use” model, so you only pay for what you need. Our Curated Learning model can provide 30-50% savings on high-usage titles. And if you want to review your data, quarterly reviews with our Customer Success team will provide recommendations on license configuration to maximise ROI.
BibliU’s On Demand Learning solution allows your university to provide access to a vast e-textbook catalogue while only paying for the content your students actually use.
With BibliU, no student is turned away: you can optionally allow an unlimited number of students to access the same content simultaneously. Students can use BibliU to access e-textbooks on and offline, make notes, sync comments across devices, and more.
BibliU allows your university to say goodbye to time-consuming, manual digital textbook management workflows. BibliU includes a centralised procurement and deployment hub from which all content can be purchased and managed. Additionally, BibliU includes bespoke integrations with Reading Lists to identify and instantly fill gaps in core reading collections.
Student engagement and learning outcomes are core pillars of any higher education institution. But it can be hard to study engagement without data, even in an online learning environment.
BibliU’s holistic approach to engagement analytics allows your academics and administrators to look at when and how students use course materials and textbooks, allowing for a more tailored approach to course design.
