Black River Technical College (BRTC) has partnered with Akademos to launch an online bookstore that will offer students substantial savings on course materials and enable faculty to evaluate and adopt low-cost course material options. Located in Pocahontas, Arkansas, BRTC is a public, two-year college committed to transforming lives and impacting the surrounding community through quality academic and career education. At BRTC, students can earn degrees and certificates in nine different fields including Health Professions and Related Programs, Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies and Humanities, and Homeland Security, Law Enforcement, Firefighting and Related Protective Services. Its Licensed Practical Nurse program was named the best of 27 LPN programs in Arkansas. BRTC also offers a 100% online A.A. in General Studies that can be transferred to a four-year college. Starting June of 2017, BRTC students can use a custom-branded version of the mobile-optimized Akademos online bookstore to shop for textbooks in a wide range of formats – including new, used, rental, marketplace and digital – from any device, anywhere, at any time – and seamlessly use their financial aid allocation as a payment option during the checkout process. Students can also sell their books through the marketplace once the term is over and set their own price to help ensure they are getting the best return during the buyback process. “We wanted to make a difference in our students’ lives and understood that reducing textbook costs is one way to drive student preparedness and success. Akademos has a proven track record of offering students real savings on course materials and helping faculty make more cost-conscious choices during the adoption process,” said BRTC President Dr. Eric Turner. In 2016, Akademos saved students purchasing textbooks and course materials over $13 million, with students saving an average of 60% off publisher list price when they used Akademos’ exclusive marketplace of over 18 million unique titles. “We’ve had a profound impact on reducing students’ costs by providing them with more affordable purchase options – including our unique educational marketplace,” said Akademos CEO John Squires. “In addition, our advanced faculty software and services dramatically improve the speed and accuracy of course material adoptions to further reduce course material costs for students.” The Akademos Adoption & Analytics Portal provides faculty with complete visibility into the real-time prices of course materials in multiple formats during the adoption process enabling them to select the most affordable, high-quality textbook options for students. In addition, the Portal enhances textbook adoption efficiency by enabling administrators to track the progress of course material adoptions across individual departments and the entire college. Faculty can also utilize Akademos Curriculum Services™ (ACS) to further reduce textbook costs. ACS provides faculty with personal consultations on new learning models and course material choices that support faculty and student success by improving access to alternative, low-cost options. Custom CoursePacks is just one way that can be accomplished. BRTC’s current on-campus bookstore will transition into a general merchandise and supply store that will serve the growing needs of the BRTC community.

The focus is to help students acquire the knowledge, literacy skills and resources that will help them navigate the medical system and make informed health decisions. More than 15,000 students from programs throughout Florida have benefited from this Initiative since 2009. There is a growing recognition among health care providers and adult educators around the country that limited English language and literacy skills can have a significant impact on one’s health. According to the National Adult Assessment of Literacy, 14 percent of Americans cannot comprehend basic health information. The study indicates that health illiteracy is especially prevalent among: 1) adults who did not complete high school, with 49 percent having below basic health literacy, and 2) foreign-born adults who have English as their second language. People who lack literacy and health literacy skills are much more likely to take medications incorrectly, be hospitalized and spend more time in the hospital than people with higher health literacy, and are four times more likely to have poor health. The potential for savings and better health are significant. Adult education, literacy and family literacy programs can play an important role in helping people to acquire these skills. "At Florida Blue and the Florida Blue Foundation, we are committed to helping people and communities achieve better health," said Susan Towler, vice president, Corporate Social Responsibility, Florida Blue. "By partnering with the Florida Literacy Coalition and supporting the Florida Health Literacy Initiative, we are reaching more and more Floridians every day and positively impacting their health and well-being."
