Launched in Fall 2013, the University of Arizona eContent Pilot Project provides students free access to eContent in selected courses.
In support of the University of Arizona’s strategic goals of innovation, collaboration, and student engagement, a pilot project was launched in Fall 2013 to explore the use of eTexts on an interactive software platform with functionalites that include annotating, note sharing and searching. Both the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 pilot projects were conducted on Courseload.
Switching from traditional textbooks to digital course materials is a growing trend in higher education. Advantages for students and faculty include greater interactivity, customizability, and opportunities for social collaboration.
Sponsored by the Office of the Chief Information Officer, this project is a collaborative effort of the following UA partners:
- University Information Technology Services (UITS)
- University Libraries
- University of Arizona BookStores
- Office of Instruction and Assessment (OIA)
- Student Affairs
