The Digital Marketplace, an initiative of the California State University Office of the Chancellor, has announced plans to launch a pilot to license digital course content from publishers Bedford/Freeman/Worth, Cengage Learning, McGraw-Hill Education, Pearson and John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Starting in the fall 2010 semester, pilot courses are scheduled at five CSU campuses. By offering faculty the choice of a licensing model, the CSU gives them the option of finding the highest quality content at the lowest cost. The purpose of the Digital Marketplace is to provide everyone access to quality, affordable educational content. Students will be able to purchase their personal-use subscriptions for the digital content through their local campus bookstore.
The pilot program will collect and analyse student and faculty user data during the fall 2010 term to learn more about usage and preferences for digital materials.
