Middlesex University the first in the UK to provide all their undergraduates with eTextbooks as part of their course

Posted: 26/10/2015

Middlesex University are the first university in the UK to provide all their undergraduates with eTextbooks as part of the course.  All students at Middlesex receive a core textbook for each module they take in each year of their study.

To deliver this innovative scheme, Middlesex chose Aspire and Kortext as their delivery partners.  Aspire provides the overall logistics and project management to ensure that all 18,000 students receive their ebooks at the start of this academic year and Kortext is the ebook platform that all students use to access their textbooks online, offline and via a single sign-on through Moodle.

Matthew Lawson, Deputy Director of Library and Student Support at Middlesex University commented:

"The project has a simple aim; to provide a free ebook to every student for each module they study.  This is a clear message for student recruitment and demonstrates support for the student learning experience in the provision of essential resources."

Middlesex joins Chester, Coventry, East London and Regent's universities in selecting Aspire as their partner for the delivery of learning resources directly to students.
