Focus on teaching, not on your students’ materials

With Barnes & Noble Education (BNED) Courseware your students start learning on day one. Students gain immediate access to your course (complete with e-text, videos, activities, and assessments) delivered right through your LMS. BNED Courseware lowers the cost of learning materials (and even has an available print companion).

You’ll have the tools you need to track student performance along with the  instructor resources you’ve come to expect. Because we are integrated with your campus bookstore, you can be sure that everyone has everything they need—on day one.

Personalize what you want, when you want

Every one of our courses starts with high-quality Open Education Resources (OER), such as OpenStax. But it doesn’t end there. We’ve enriched that content to deliver a holistic course that includes:

  • Video examples
  • Auto-graded practice quizzes
  • Activities
  • Homework
  • Lecture Slides
  • Assessments

To save you time we make it easy for you to personalize our complete courses through a simple drag and drop modules to align with your syllabus. This enables you to add, delete, or adapt new content directly in the learning path. And you can use pre-built quizzes or create your own assessments from a full test bank.

OER needs more awareness

OER needs more awareness

Faculty members are generally satisfied with quality of open educational resources, according to a new report, even though most instructors still aren’t aware of OER. Nearly two-thirds of the surveyed faculty members, or 65.9 percent, said they had either never heard of OER, or had heard some but didn’t know much about them. Only 5.1 percent of the faculty members said they were very aware of OER.

Digital Courseware studies show improvement, most use Courseware in blended and teacher-lead environments
