Looking for More STEM Content to Engage and Inspire Students?
Through an exclusive partnership between Ambassador and ProPrep, educators can supplement their print and digital course materials with customized STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) content designed with student preferences and learning goals in mind. Faculty can specify which kinds of videos, tutorials and study guides they want to include in their courses, aligning the topics with their textbooks and syllabi. 
Outsourcing Course Materials Operations: More Affordable Than You Might Think
While outsourcing is widely accepted at schools of all types and sizes, it is one of those services that often stirs emotions. It allows educators to tap into industry experts and improve operational efficiencies while generating revenue for the school, yet the uncertainty of relinquishing control and the misconceptions of increased costs can be downright scary.

 Our new white paper explores the considerations and costs involved, so you know what to expect. 
PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT
OER: Have You Thought About the Management and Maintenance Involved?

Yet this seemingly "free" approach isn't necessarily free, and the planning, selection, management and maintenance necessary for a successful OER program can't be overlooked. Check out our article in EDUCAUSE Review. 
Don't Overpay for Direct Digital Content
Ambassador's Pub PinPoint solution takes the guesswork out of embedded direct digital content costs, accessibility and license or access durations, ensuring schools do not overpay, while content providers receive accurate payment. 

Learn how our SourceOne Platform manages and translates data from the school’s SIS, LMS and digital content metadata into enrollment-based financial analytics and reconciliations for students, while also identifying duplicate access of the same digital content.
