Ambassador Education Solutions and Cengage are broadening their partnership with an enhanced integration that simplifies the way students obtain and use access codes for digital course materials. Students can now redeem instant access codes for their Cengage Digital Courseware at the same time they receive all of their course materials from Ambassador, making the entire process more timely and seamless.

Traditionally, upon ordering digital course materials, students would receive further instructions and access codes to retrieve content and course resources. Ambassador took notice that a significant number of inquiries came from students who had misplaced their codes. Ambassador and Cengage recognized an opportunity to ease and expedite the process for students, giving them instant access to their digital course materials at the point of sale when course materials are top of mind.

“Today’s students are busy with course loads, jobs and more, so it’s important that we do whatever we can to make the education experience more efficient and easier for them to manage,” said Steven M. Blicht, CEO of Ambassador. “Expanding our partnership with Cengage is yet another example of our student centric focus, providing students with a single source to choose how they want to receive their course materials and an immediate path to access them. This process not only helps students better prepare for the start of class, it also saves students time.”

Blicht added, “The team at Cengage has been great to work with on this integration, sharing our vision to deliver a stellar student experience.”

Throughout Ambassador’s partnership with Cengage, the two have customized print and digital course materials programs that put the right resources in students’ hands, the right way, at the right price. Both companies are focused on accessibility and affordability, making sure students have the tools they need to succeed.

“As more institutions pursue digital course materials, we are continually evolving our collaboration with Ambassador to best meet the needs of today’s students,” said Todd Markson, Chief Strategy Officer of Cengage. “Our digital integration with Ambassador addresses the demand we are seeing from students and faculty members to ease access and enhance the learning process.”
