VitalSource Bridge helps get content to the right people at the right timeHow many internal meetings have left your team saying, “if only we had a platform for those customers, we’d grow sales” or “If only we had a way to easily sell collections, we could enter that market” or, even “If only we had a way to easily sample to that group, we’d increase awareness of our great content”?

We have good news: with VitalSource Bridge, selling or sampling a selection of titles to a distinct group of users has never been easier.

New for 2018: Flashcards!

Posted by Rainna Erikson on January 02, 2018

New for 2018: Flashcards!As a new year begins, the Bookshelf Online team has been reflecting on our goal of creating the best study center possible for our users. During 2017, we took our reader and added robust study tools going beyond notes and highlights, including: integrations with Wikipedia and Microsoft OneNote, labs geared towards our power-users, simplified sharing of notes and highlights, and a design refresh to make our site more intuitive. All of this was done in an effort to help users learn their content and create the best interactive study center possible.

While we are pleased with the work we did in 2017, we are more excited to continue the upgrades to the student experience in 2018.

VitalSource’s 2017 Banner Year

Posted by Pep Carrera on December 28, 2017

VitalSource TeamBefore the calendar resets for 2018 – and the majority of our institutions, campus stores, and publishers enter the next rush, and while companies plan 2018’s new learning programs – I wanted to take some time to reflect on 2017.

For 21 years we have been focused on helping our customer succeed, and that focus has brought us excitement, challenges, and transformative growth. 2017 has been no exception. By every measure it has been a record year in every metric we grew more than 30 percent this year!

Over the last 12 months we have seen a boom in students and employees using our learning platform, increasing 2.4 million over the previous 12 months. A total of 7.8 million users collectively spent well over 8 thousand years learning on our platform!

Easy access to digital tools to support student success

Posted by Scott Gaspar on December 21, 2017

Easy access to digital tools to support student successAs a father or two young boys, I recently attended parent-teacher conferences where my children went through stations showing their recent work. When we reached the computer station, my techy self was appalled. Not because of antiquated technology, but because my son had to dig through a bag of 25 passwords to find the correct credentials for both the computer and his reading courseware. As I watched him dig to find his login details, I thought of how frustrating the process must be for teachers and students, and how much time is wasted that could be spent learning.

Unfortunately, the story isn’t much different in higher education. Applications from various providers all require different logins, passwords, access codes, or course keys. When we think about improving learning outcomes with adaptive learning, analytics, and personalization, we often forget that the first, and most important step, is making it easy for the learner to access these great new learning tools.
