California State University’s Affordable Learning Solutions allows faculty to choose and provide both affordable and quality educational content to their students. In order to further benefit from the CSU learning experience, CSU is focusing on opportunities to reduce the course material expenses for students.
With certain programs partnerships in place, CSU’s faculty and students have more access to good-quality low-cost learning materials.
CSU’s Rent Digital program offers student’s an option for a digital textbook with savings of up to 60% or more in comparison to a new print textbook. RedShelf will be joining a few other digital vendors and publishers in order to provide students with great options for digital textbooks!
Students and faculty will be able to purchase eTextbooks from RedShelf through the CSU Rent Digital program by going to csu.redshelf.com. Three of CSU’s campuses have already formed partnerships with RedShelf, where students can purchase directly through the bookstore's branded site those bookstores include, CSU-Fresno, CSU- Long Beach, and CSU- Pomona.
With CSU’s Rent Digital eTextbooks, students will have access to their materials throughout the length of the academic term via devices such as laptops, desktops, tablets, or even mobile devices. These eTextbooks also provide the ability to be accessed online or offline for those times when an internet connection is not available. By renting digital, CSU student’s will have the ability for greater interactions with the text such as note-taking, search and defining keywords, highlighting, and drawing.
California State University has a presence in 23 different cities including: Bakersfield, Channel Islands, Chico, Domingues Hills, East Bay, Fresno, Fullerton, Humboldt, Long Beach, Los Angeles, maritime Academy, Monterey Bay, Northridge, Pomona, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, San Marcos, Sonoma, and Stanislaus.
This new partnership will allow students from the various CSU locations to have access to the digital textbooks that are offered. RedShelf is excited to accompany the other digital textbook vendors to provide an ideal reading and studying experience for students of California State University.
