Program Awards Outstanding Campus Efforts in the Expansion of Digital Content Delivery
RedShelf has announced that the Pearl River Community College Wildcat Den Bookstore has been recognized as a 2021 Digital Champion—an award celebrating exceptional leadership and performance in digital course materials delivery. Further, the recognition celebrates campus-wide efforts in driving student affordability and access while improving institutional efficiency and sustainability.
Today, RedShelf software (Content Delivery System & eReader) serves more than 10,000 publishers and more than 1,500 educational partners, including PRCC, reaching millions of student and professional learners worldwide. 42 of those partners were named to this list for 2021, placing PRCC amongst the nation’s top performers.
“As a leader in the industry, we see the digital transformation happening all around us. But as with any type of change, people move at different speeds—schools, faculty, and students are no exceptions. The RedShelf Digital Champions program showcases those who stood out in the crowd—those making big leaps in affordability, access, and efficiency. Congratulations to everyone at Pearl River Community College as this is truly an acknowledgement of your hard work in making an impact on students.” said Greg Fenton, CEO and co-founder of RedShelf.
“This is a huge accomplishment for the bookstore —but more importantly a win for PRCC students. This award recognizes the hard work and dedication our faculty and bookstore put in as a campus to lead the way in saving students money and ensuring access to the materials they need to succeed in and out of the classroom” said PRCC Vice President, Candace Harper. “Our PRCC Faculty are very conscious about the cost of materials and have went above and beyond to ensure our students receive the best education while focusing on affordability and accessibility”.
Textbooks, codes and required materials in the past have cost students over $1,000 or more across the country. PRCC took many steps to reduce the overall costs of physical textbooks knocking off half the expense when switching to the RedShelf platform. By implementing a digital platform which provides eBooks, homework modules and additional resources at a reduced cost, students receive day one access inside their course shell.
Founded in 2012, RedShelf today provides millions of college students and corporate learners access to its award-winning digital instructional resources. In addition to digitizing and distributing content, the company offers software (known as its Content Delivery System) that enables campuses and businesses to acquire, manage, and deliver all their course materials—millions of titles—through a single process and platform.
