CSU Affordable Learning Solutions webinar on March 18th will showcase Cal Poly Pomona's AL$ program and Thuze

A key goal of the CSU’s Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) initiative (http://als.csuprojects.org)  is to support faculty choosing quality course materials that are more affordable for their students. This webinar series is designed to support your campus communities implementing your own AL$ activities.

The AL$ Rent Digital program offers students the option to rent digital versions of textbooks at a cost savings of 60% or more off the price of purchasing the new print textbook http://als.csuprojects.org/rent_digital_etextbooks .  Through CSU’s agreements with Barnes & Noble, Cengage Learning, CourseSmart, , Follett, Milestone Documents, SAGE, Thuze, VitalSource, and W.W. Norton & Co.,   faculty and students have access to about 45,000 popular e-textbooks at discounted prices. 

This webinar will showcase Cal Poly Pomona’s AL$ program, and it will introduce a new publisher/partner, Thuze, and their services to the rent digital program.
