Focus will be on how the delivery of content is evolving, content challenges facing institutions, and innovative approaches used to successfully implement a digital solution.

Extended Abstract

During this session we will introduce attendees to the benefits of moving from using print content in the classroom to a digital solution that enables better student-faculty engagement, inside and outside of the classroom. With the quality of education and student success becoming influenced more and more by content access, efficiency and scale - especially due to the explosive growth in mobile device use - there are many factors to consider during strategy development and implementation. We will also focus on how the delivery of content is evolving, content delivery challenges facing institutions today, and innovative approaches used to overcome some of those challenges to successfully implement a digital solution.

Topics Covered:

- Through our work with institutions, it has become clear that there are many factors to consider when adopting a digital solution and it is critically important to ensure that the chosen strategy addresses the unique needs of the specific institution.
- Improving quality of education and student success via expanding content access and increasing efficiency has to remain the primary objective.
- Additionally, as mobile device usage continues to grow rapidly, how does that impact the access component?
- Copia Overview and Solutions.
- Benefits of integrating Copia with your campus systems.
