Norwalk, CT (PRUnderground) November 12th, 2020
Akademos announced today a new partnership with Oklahoma Panhandle State University (OPSU) to provide students access to low-cost textbooks through a new online bookstore and course materials platform. The new OPSU online bookstore launched to support students for the fall 2020 semester.
A part of the Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges, Oklahoma Panhandle State University is a national leader among regional universities with a mission rooted in “progress through knowledge.” Removing the barriers to affordability and accessibility, the online bookstore will empower the OPSU community of students with an accessible solution that can fully support their commitment to academic affordability. Akademos will provide students with a wide selection of course material format options including new, used, eBook, and rental at significant savings. The new university-branded course materials website conveniently integrates student courses, associated course materials, and multiple purchasing options with a single sign-on. The integration with university technology systems will make the new bookstore a seamless extension of the OPSU student experience, no matter their location.
The online bookstore will additionally support the University’s faculty and administrators with a comprehensive platform that streamlines the management process of all aspects of course materials adoption. With a step-by-step guide for selections, recommendations and past adoption history and the ability to compare prices in real-time, faculty can easily support student success. The analytics tools also give leadership increased visibility into the process with the ability to track critical data, including student purchasing and utilization, and the ability to connect with faculty and students via built-in notifications.
“We are excited to partner with Oklahoma Panhandle State University to provide an online course materials platform that will support their mission and to foster affordability, accessibility, and student success,” said Raj Kaji, CEO, Akademos.
Akademos provides higher education institutions with a full-service online platform to manage course materials, from monitoring adoptions and compliance to purchasing textbooks to measuring utilization.

For students, the platform simplifies the purchasing and access of materials through a personalized portal that connects with school SIS, LMS, and payment systems. Akademos gives colleges and universities a more transparent, convenient, and cost-effective solution to manage how course materials are used and measured, helping to improve textbook affordability and student success.
