Oglala Lakota College, a tribal land grant college located in Kyle, South Dakota, launched a partnership with Akademos last fall, shifting their textbook sales to the online platform, now known as the online Braveheart Bookstore. Through a deep integration with the school’s information system and single-sign-on capabilities, students can log into their student accounts and access their specific list of courses and course materials immediately.
Akademos CEO, Raj Kaji said, “As colleges and universities continue to explore creative approaches to enhance value and improve the student experience, an online bookstore helps ensure the best possible value for students. Oglala Lakota College is taking an innovative approach to help make an affordable education experience possible for their students.”
Oglala Lakota College introduced Inclusive Access courses through Akademos in the spring 2022 semester and continued through the fall 2022 semester. Inclusive Access is a digital course material delivery model where students are automatically given access to their materials on or before the first day of class at a reduced price. Courses from the business, accounting, and economics departments are part of the Inclusive Access program, which reaches over 200 students each semester.
More than just an online bookstore, an Akademos technology-driven solution is a customizable bookstore experience every unique institution can benefit from. Whether the bookstore is a service for students or a revenue generator, the platform supports prioritizing readiness, textbook affordability, and retention with all models including Equitable Access, Inclusive Access, Student Choice, or a combination. All aspects of textbook and course material purchasing and delivery are taken care of so you can focus on what matters – student success. A true partnership – Akademos provides unmatched customer support along with access to tools and analytics needed to take each student’s college experience to the next level.
