Norwalk, CT (PRUnderground) September 15th, 2020
Akademos, Inc, the premier virtual bookstore and course materials platform provider in higher education, announced today the launch of EDGE Syllabus Central™, the latest feature of their all-in-one software solution for college and university bookstores. An industry first, EDGE Syllabus Central connects syllabus and course materials management in one centralized platform to help further simplify the course materials ecosystem as well as add functionality to aid administrators in new ways.
“It is with tremendous excitement that we announce the launch of our newest product, EDGE Syllabus Central,” said Christopher Boyster, VP of Sales & Marketing at Akademos. “This intuitive technology provides higher education institutions a way to connect the syllabus to course materials management software, positioning them for greater success.”
Designed to simplify and streamline the syllabus management process, EDGE Syllabus Central supports institutions at every level. Fully integrated with Akademos’ existing course materials platform, educators now have a convenient way to create, manage, and connect the syllabus to their adoptions, reducing their administrative workload. Once published, the syllabus is automatically presented in the LMS, providing a consistent and convenient experience for students. Administrators will save time and reduce errors by enabling institution-wide regulatory compliance and simplified accreditation reporting. With one repository to review and edit syllabi, administration has visibility into content, compliance, and actionable data, while maintaining educator autonomy and academic freedom.
“With the rapidly changing learning environment at many colleges and universities, having one powerful tool for syllabus and course materials management has benefits beyond the classroom,” said Raj Kaji, CEO Akademos. “The addition of the Syllabus Central software to our platform provides a higher level of support to institutions and removes additional barriers to success for students.”
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. More than just an online bookstore, we give school administrators a single platform to streamline course adoptions and meet compliance regulations. 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.
