BOSTON, MA - August 6, 2013 — College students are under extreme financial pressure and often can’t afford the textbooks assigned for their classes. Increasingly, students are turning to the web to study, both to bypass the high cost of traditional textbooks and quickly find the information they need. Each month, more than one million students study with Boundless’ open content and textbook alternatives for a faster and easier learning experience.
Building on data from millions of its student users, Boundless is launching premium textbook alternatives for $19.99 with three major improvements: Boundless Learning Technology, mobile apps, and expanded and improved content. Plus, Boundless is doubling down on its commitment to free educational content and is broadening its distribution of free textbooks.
“Students deserve better than the status quo of ineffective, overpriced textbooks,” said Ariel Diaz, founder and CEO of Boundless. “Today’s students expect more. They’ve grown up with amazing technology but are burdened with poorly-designed products or ancient technology when they get their education. Students want an online, personalized and enjoyable learning experience without an insane price tag.”
