Hocking College has partnered with one of the leading course materials management companies, ED MAP, to provide students with textbooks at a significantly lower cost.

After a successful test of eTextbooks with select college programs during the 2013-14 academic year, the program will be rolled out campus-wide for Autumn 2014.

Hocking College will include a small course fee, giving students access to eTextbooks. Paper textbooks will still be available, but at a greatly reduced cost. This digital option gives students immediate access to the materials, and eTextbooks can be accessed through a smartphone, tablet, eReader or computer/laptop.

Advantages of eTextbooks:

  • Lower cost - an average eTextbook is at least 50 percent cheaper than the new print book
  • Provides immediate access to materials
  • No more waiting for backordered print textbooks
  • Late registrants can access course materials immediately
  • Access books from any computer or connected device, or access offline after books are downloaded
  • Read, create notes, bookmark and highlight pages or information
  • Share notes and highlighted sections with classmates and instructors
  • No more lugging around heavy books, and no more lost books
  • Environmentally friendly

ETextbooks are accessible, reliable and more accurate. They allow instructors to create customized eTextbooks, combing parts from multiple sources into a more functional resource. They have relevant tutorials available online for self-learners, and they have a read-out-loud function, which lets students listen to the book. If students wish to purchase a print book, they can pay the difference between the eTextbook and the print edition.
