Education & Curriculum

  • - We went with EdTech which is a full solution etext provider which works with most of the vendors on the list and we use all of them currently. This so far has been highly successful and EdTech is committed to working with schools to make its service affordable and convenient.
  • - Major problems with vista higher learning.
  • - Follett is hot garbage for digital texts.
  • - Dissatisfied with KNO, Wiley and Pearson
  • - HATE CourseSmart...
  • - We use MBS for all the purchases, so do not directly buy from any of those. MBS is sufficient only for a single checkout for parents, not for instruction.
  • -MBS - Neutral
  • - Pearson continues to be an issue even though EdTech works with Pearson.
