ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — XanEdu, Inc. and MBS Direct have partnered to provide a streamlined way to adopt, manage and deliver high-quality custom textbooks to the education market. MBS Direct integrated and launched a white label version, called eText Builder, of XanEdu’s Customization Platform. eText Builder allows faculty to provide course materials specifically tailored to their class objectives, meanwhile reducing the high cost of traditional textbooks. eText Builder empowers educators to efficiently search, evaluate and order course materials, including textbooks, Open Educational Resources (OERs) and over 8 million other content items. Faculty can also upload their own content. Through XanEdu’s customization and self-service technology, educators can source, aggregate and order custom print and digital materials in minutes.

XanEdu Partners with Carnegie Foundation to Further Their Goals of Improving Student Success & Reducing Costs to Students

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — XanEdu, the nation’s leader in learning content customization and mobile delivery, is excited to announce a newly formed partnership with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. These two leading organizations in higher education have joined to further their goals of improving student success and reducing costs to students. The Carnegie Foundation selected XanEdu to support and deliver Statway® and Quantway® core course material in print and mobile formats. Integration with XanEdu’s unique customization platform enables the Carnegie Foundation to provide complete customization options to its partner schools’ instructors and seamless digital delivery to the thousands of students already utilizing the programs. In 2010, after acknowledging that more is accomplished by collaboration, Carnegie initiated a network of faculty members, researchers, designers, students, and content experts to create a new system designed to increase student success in developmental mathematics. The network devised two new pathways—Statway® and Quantway® – focused on statistics and quantitative reasoning, respectively.  Statway® and Quantway® reduce the time required to earn college credit while improving the content and pedagogy of developmental mathematics. The Pathways present engaging, relevant, and useful mathematics concepts that students can use in their daily lives. Statway® and Quantway® are taught using common curricula, assessments, and online platform, as well as innovative instructional approaches. Both programs result in significant improvement of student success in much shorter periods of time.  While Quantway® students succeed at two times the rate as those in the traditional system, Statway® delivers three times the success rate, and both accomplish this in half the time. These results have remained consistent for each of the four years these...
