Ed Map Brings OpenStax Content Into Its Mix of Course Materials

CHARTING THE CONTENT WATERS: Ed Map, a Nelsonville, Ohio-based company that’s “evolving the supply chain” of course materials for higher education, announced a partnership with open-source textbook provider OpenStax. The collaboration will allow Ed Map to offer OpenStax's free and low-cost content among its suite of available course materials, which include traditional publisher print, e-books and adaptive courseware.
