Simple. Effective. Affordable.
That’s course materials adoption, management, delivery and access with Ambassador.
For decades, schools and publishers have trusted Ambassador to simplify course materials adoption, management, delivery and access. We bring everything together in a streamlined, effective and measurable way.
Our team knows what it takes to relieve the course materials burden. Our experienced, in-house technology experts manage and maintain all integrations and customized solutions. We do our own inventory management and fulfillment and we deliver 360-degree transparency for all transactions. Plus, our responsive, knowledgeable client services group is there to support everyone, every step of the way.
At Ambassador, we are always thinking of new and better ways to support the course materials lifecycle. Our revolutionary Course Materials Platform, RODA, is the evolution of our partnerships and represents our commitment to introducing the right kind of change, making it easier for students, schools and publishers to work together. RODA merges access, affordability and transparency. It is built upon the same reliable technology and support services schools have come to know and expect from Ambassador, plus added controls, functionality and analytics to address changing market dynamics. With RODA, course materials have never been easier.
I AM Team Ambassador
Our team prides itself on being the very definition of a partner, a collaborator and an innovator, serving higher education institutions, K-12 schools and districts, and publishers. With Ambassador, we are all on the same team. We understand and support every stakeholder’s role in the course materials lifecycle.
Students: We simplify access to affordable course materials and courseware. Because we aggregate all content, deliver it through our easy-to-use interface, and hold prices consistent over a term or distribution, students don’t have to shop around or navigate multiple platforms and they have more time to focus on their studies.
Schools: We streamline course materials operations including publisher relationships. Relieving the burden from faculty, administrators and IT, we manage integrations through our Course Materials Platform, we help schools comply with applicable Department of Education regulations, we facilitate extensive customer support, we handle all publisher related issues, and we provide 360-degree transparency to verify transactions and fees.
Publishers: We ease account management and reconciliation. Because we integrate with each school directly, we provide accurate and verifiable data for all transactions, usage and opt-outs so publishers are paid what they are owed. Plus, we enable publishers to block access for students who opt-out. We also relieve the burden from publishers’ support and IT teams by servicing and guiding schools.
Dynamic Organizations Choose Ambassador
We used another course materials platform in the past and we even tried bringing the operation in house, but nothing really worked the way we wanted it to until we brought in Ambassador… The Ambassador team was incredibly thorough in getting us up and running quickly, and they continue to be flexible and responsive, accommodating last minute changes, unique requests and/or trouble-shooting without hesitation.
Ambassador’s responsiveness and flexibility have been exceptional as the System’s three school brands have evolved over our decade long partnership. When the System’s three independent schools merged into the singular, regionally accredited Sullivan University, the Ambassador team went to great lengths to make sure all students of the larger, more dynamic University had uninterrupted access to their course materials.
We put students at the center of everything we do, and we select vendors who share our student-first philosophy. Ambassador fits this mold, and then some. Ambassador’s eBooks service is not only easy for students to use, but it gives them flexibility and choice in how they like to access their course materials.
St. Andrew’s School
Switching our course materials operations to Ambassador was the right decision for our school; our experience has been very positive. Always quick to respond to inquiries and resolve issues, Ambassador's promptness is refreshing and its commitment to making sure our program runs smoothly is second to none. We know we have a champion in our corner.
Global Education Provider
When we transitioned to Ambassador, your team had big shoes to fill, replacing a course materials provider that had a long-standing record of accomplishment in the traditional school space. You did this all so effortlessly. Under Ambassador’s guidance, we have not only seen measurable improvements, we have built a bookstore and course materials operation that works, relying on your superb technology and committed support team.

The digital content management process is time intensive and challenging for many schools. Ambassador approaches it differently with automation and accuracy. They track, inventory and supply all access codes, which makes it easy for students to obtain materials, provides schools the controls to avoid duplication and ensure accurate payments, and gives us insight into exactly what materials are being sold and used. Ambassador's digital content management process is awesome!
Our account representatives at Ambassador are really an extension of our own team. They have an intimate understanding of our operations and our goals and they believe in open and regular communication. Ambassador is a stellar example of what it means to be a partner and not just another vendor.
Our partnership with Ambassador strengthens our shared goal to support the changing dynamics of the market and the needs of today’s learners, who need more affordable learning options.
