04 Sep College Professor’s Biggest Problem Solved
When asked, “What is the biggest problem we could solve for you?” University of Chicago Ph.D. and California Humanities Professor Chad Redwing replied, “Some semesters as few as 15% of my students purchase the required texts for class. If this number could be raised, my job would be easier and the students would learn more.”
In collaboration with digital publishing start-up Confluence Courseware, Dr. Redwing created two interactive digital e-textbooks capable of fully replacing any physical text. This semester, over 82% of enrolled students purchased the $50 ebook from iBookstore and Kobo. This 67% increase in students with interactive e-textbooks customized for two humanities courses is expected to measurably increase learning, which will be assessed at the end of the semester. Combining his own original works of authorship, works in the public domain, curated web-links to textual readings, museums, multimedia resources, and other Open Educational Resources, with assignments in two well-order syntopical guides, Dr. Redwing created the solution to his biggest problem.
