Affording textbooks can be a heavy burden for students. See what our co-founder and CEO, Dave Sherwood, had to say and how BibliU is helping students on Fox News!
Edtech platform BibliU was recently featured on Fox News' America Reports for National Education Week in a segmented on affordability in higher edcation. A startling 11% of students reported skipping meals just to afford their textbooks for class.
"[Higher education institutions] are doing all sorts of things like freezing their fees, increasing scholarships," said co-founder and CEO Dave Sherwood, "but it's a very nice addition to say we're saving [students] fifty percent on their textbook materials, and it's included in your student account."
With affordability becoming more and more of a pressing issue in higher education, platforms like BibliU aim to provide accessible and affordable options for students so they no longer have to worry about the costs of course materials.
BibliU is running a pilot program with the Occidental College library (Los Angeles) to provide digital textbook reserves to an initial cohort of its students.
