BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University and Pearson are working together to reduce the costs of digital textbooks for students on all IU campuses. IU's eTexts initiative enables faculty to optionally choose these digital textbooks and online exercises at reduced prices for students.
[snip]. [Brad Wheeler] IU vice president for information technology and chief information officer [said] "Pearson is a world leader in developing the next generation of online learning experiences, and this deal enables IU faculty to choose Pearson products and save students money."
IU faculty can now choose digital texts from Flat World Knowledge, Harvard Business School Publishing, IU Press, MacMillan, McGraw Hill, Pearson, W.W. Norton, and Wiley -- with other publishers to come.
Students especially like being able to highlight and share study notes with peers and to see annotations by faculty. Students have access to both online and print versions that suit their study needs, and they will have ongoing access to all of their eTexts as long as they are enrolled at IU.
