McGraw-Hill Education and Copia Interactive Collaborate to Make Powerful Digital Learning Materials More Accessible and Affordable for College Students
Thursday, June 14, 2018

New Agreement Will Make McGraw-Hill Education Course Materials Available by 'Inclusive Access' Through Copia's Digital Platform

NEW YORK, June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A new agreement between learning science company McGraw-Hill Education and Copia Interactive, a leading provider of digital learning materials, will make it even easier for colleges to provide students with effective, affordable course materials via "inclusive access" programs. A growing number of institutions are starting or expanding inclusive access programs, which enable students to have digital course materials automatically delivered to them on the first day of class or earlier at a much lower cost.

Through the agreement, McGraw-Hill Education materials, including eBooks and the company's powerful digital learning platform, McGraw-Hill Connect®, will be accessible to colleges that use Copia's platform for inclusive access. McGraw-Hill Education currently provides inclusive access at more than 500 campuses across the United States, and that number contin­ues to grow.

The collaboration is part of an effort by both companies to increase student success by making these crucial materials more affordable. McGraw-Hill Connect, which uses adaptive technology to personalize the learning experience for students and help instructors become even more effective, has been shown to help improve student grades and retention rates. It is used by millions of students, and is roughly half the cost of a traditional hard-bound textbook.

Copia provides a suite of powerful tools that enable faculty to create engaging learning environments that are fully aligned with course objectives. Customizable discussions, multimedia links and assessments can be embedded seamlessly inside the content, deepening students' engagement with their materials and faculty. Copia ensures educators are supported every step of the way by providing individualized services focused on creating instructional experiences that evolve with students' needs.

Through the agreement with Copia, students can now have McGraw-Hill Connect course materials served up to them directly through the Copia Class digital platform. When institutions provide inclusive access programs, students can choose to have their digital materials automatically delivered to them on the first day of class or earlier, and they benefit from significantly reduced prices while experiencing improved academic performance as they begin their course work as early as possible.

"We're excited to work with Copia to help more students, instructors and institutions realize the benefits of inclusive access and make learning materials more affordable and accessible," said Bill Okun, president of higher education at McGraw-Hill Education. "The easier we can make it for students to access these important materials, the more they will benefit academically and the more success they will have."

"McGraw-Hill Education has long been a leader in supporting students and instructors and a trusted content partner of Copia's," said Ben Lowinger, executive vice president and founder of Copia. "We are thrilled to take our partnership to the next level by offering an Inclusive Access program that will give students a cost-effective way to hit the ground running with all the digital content necessary for success."
