Ambassador’s CECU Session Explores Complexities and Strategies Surrounding Digital Course Materials

Educators to Learn What it Takes to Simplify, Streamline and Measure a Successful Digital Program

As institutions supplement print textbooks with digital course materials, they are not only giving students a choice, but also enhancing course quality. Yet the inclusion of digital is not always easy. Educators attending the 2019 CECU Convention will learn how to design a digital strategy that simplifies the management and delivery of course materials, plus streamlines publisher relationships and processes.

“Overwhelmed by the Digital Surge? There’s an Easier Way to Manage Course Materials” will be led by seasoned CECU presenter Bruce Schneider, Vice President of Business Engineering at Ambassador. Attendees should mark their calendars for Tuesday, June 4th at 11:00am central time.

“To be successful, a digital content program requires planning and implementation of new processes, not to mention accessible data and support,” said Steven M. Blicht, CEO of Ambassador. “From simplifying the opt-out process for inclusive access programs, to taking the guesswork out of digital content costs, obtaining content from multiple sources, preventing duplicate purchases, and measuring outcomes, it’s not unusual for schools to feel overwhelmed by all of the details. Ambassador has done this enough times that we know what works, streamlining everything for students, schools, digital content platforms and publishers.”

Those details include the management of inclusive access programs, publisher direct content, access codes, print-on-demand, license verification, and financial controls. Sharing its experience powering digital programs of all sizes and scopes, Ambassador’s session will review the ins and outs of an effective course materials program.

Ambassador manages the entire digital content roll-out process. Assisting in the selection of digital content platforms and digital materials, working with publishers to secure access, and managing licenses and opt out processes, plus maintaining related print course materials programs, Ambassador handles it all. Additionally, the company’s technology tracks and translates all course materials metrics, ensuring schools don’t overpay and publishers receive accurate payment.

The CECU Annual Convention is the largest gathering for leaders in postsecondary career education across America. Coming together June 2nd through June 5th at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, attendees have the opportunity to listen, learn and engage with thought leaders in the field.
