Victor Valley College 1st in CA to use BibliU Learning Platform

VICTORVILLE – BibliU, an EdTech innovator, announced September 8, that Victor Valley College is implementing its Universal Learning platform to ensure students have access to course content on day one of class. The college will be the first in the state to implement the new tech.

Coined by its founders “the Spotify of the textbook world” BibliU e-textbook supplier negotiates with publishers on behalf of its users – whether students or academics – and via a web app, provides access to core textbooks.

“Victor Valley College is the first school in California to implement BibliU’s Universal Learning model to reduce the cost of course materials for students,” said Victor Valley College President Dr. Daniel Walden. “The school is a trailblazer in this business model and is proud to lead the way. We’re sure other colleges and universities will follow suit as soon as they learn of the benefits we are realizing.”

On average, the price of books and supplies at private, non-profit institutions average around $1,220 for students.

Offered campus-wide, the digital platform will enable Victor Valley to lower textbook costs by 30% to 50% while guaranteeing all students have access to the content and courseware they need as soon as classes begin.

“Our mission is to provide opportunities for student learning and success, as well as excellent experiences for our faculty,” said Victor Valley Vice President of Instruction Todd Scott. “So far, onboarding BibliU’s platform has alleviated some of the frustrations felt by students and faculty around the process of buying and accessing textbooks.”

And according to the BibliU site, the streamlined process in identifying, selecting, procuring, and distributing content provides a cost avoidance savings for institutions, which can reach $500,000 per year.
