Ability to only subscribe to textbooks that students use enables universities and departments to save money on FlatWorld’s peer-reviewed, affordable learning materials.

BOSTON, January 7, 2019 — FlatWorld, a publisher of college learning materials that are both affordable and high quality, today announced FlatWorld Institutional, a fully customizable college textbook subscription offering for university- or department-wide textbook adoptions.

“For the last two years, FlatWorld has offered a subscription solution that gives access to our entire catalog. While many larger universities appreciated this unlimited option, we also received feedback from universities big and small that they wanted the option to subscribe to select textbooks, as opposed to paying for an ‘unlimited’ subscription that included many textbooks their students didn’t need,” said Alastair Adam, Co-CEO of FlatWorld. “We piloted a customizable subscription solution in 2018, and are thrilled to offer FlatWorld Institutional to universities across the U.S. and Canada in 2019. This new offering is very much in line with our commitment to providing the most affordable, high-quality textbook solutions on the market.”

FlatWorld Institutional features:

  • Textbook subscriptions tailored to each university’s unique needs: With FlatWorld Institutional, universities only pay for the textbooks their students use. Options include institution or department access to FlatWorld’s entire catalog, or a portion of the catalog. The subscription is priced at a fixed rate per student and text.
  • Easy integration: FlatWorld textbooks feature single sign on with the leading learning management systems (LMS), including Blackboard, Canvas, Brightspace, and Moodle.
  • Instructor supplements, including homework: Every textbook in a university subscription includes test banks and test generators, PowerPoint slides and lecture notes, and instructor manuals. The FlatWorld Homework System is available for most textbooks, and always comes at no additional cost.
  • Print upgrade options: Institution access includes online and downloadable textbooks for students. For an additional change of $10-25, students can choose to purchase a full color print companion textbook directly from FlatWorld.

FlatWorld publishes more than 135 textbooks across across more than 20 academic subjects, including accounting, business, law, chemistry, communication, economics, finance, health, management and organizational behavior, marketing, nutrition, political science, psychology, and sociology.
