A Higher Education Reimagined: How to Ensure Affordable Learning Solutions for All Students

It’s no surprise that college students struggle to afford college tuition and course materials. How does the post-pandemic landscape affect this historic higher education problem?


Trusted by colleges and universities nationwide

OpenStax Ally and preferred print partner since 2019

XanEdu is proud to be the preferred print, distribution, and customization partner for OpenStax, a nonprofit educational initiative based at Rice University.

OpenStax aims to make learning affordable by offering dozens of free, peer-reviewed, digital OER textbooks that are ideal for college courses. As an OpenStax Ally, XanEdu offers FlexEd courses (low-cost digital courseware that integrates directly into your LMS) that are based on many of the most popular OpenStax textbooks.

XanEdu enables colleges and universities to customize and distribute these textbooks — both in print and digitally — at scale.
