Courseload to Help Guide eContent Expansion at Ball State University
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 9, 2013 – Courseload, Inc., the leading innovator in the aggregation, delivery and use of digital course materials, today announced that Ball State University has chosen the Courseload eContent Readiness Program (CERP) to help guide broad-scale eContent adoption at its 21,000-student campus.
Following the success of a recent pilot with Courseload, Ball State made the decision to move forward with an expansion of its digital course materials initiative via the CERP, an institution-specific, multi-phased planning and implementation methodology to advance the use of digital course materials.
“We evaluated Courseload during a pilot program last year as a means for delivering textbook content to students in a digital format,” said Yasemin Tunc, assistant vice president for academic solutions. “Courseload was selected based on simplicity, accessibility, and the additional teaching tools it provides for both the faculty and students as they interact with content.”
The CERP includes a dedicated launch team to guide participating institutions through every aspect of the transition to digital course materials, including course and program selection and rollout, eContent strategy, business process alignment, faculty recruitment and growth, communication, and faculty and student support services.
“This program helps educational institutions such as Ball State recognize the academic return on investment from transitioning to digital course materials, enabled by Courseload’s award-winning platform and innovative business model,” said senior vice president of academic and business partnerships, John Falchi.
Driven by a commitment to increase access, lower costs and improve learning outcomes, Courseload is the leading innovator in the aggregation, delivery and use of digital course materials in higher education. Courseload eliminates the barriers that have impeded the print-to-digital evolution in academia through a business model inclusive of all stakeholders, an innovative platform incorporating study tools and analytics to enhance learning and pedagogy, and a team with deep experience in implementing educational technology solutions.
