Copia is the only platform designed to provide a single portal to all of a users’ digital content and social activity, creating a unified experience unrivaled in the market. In addition to Tier-1 content availability, students enjoy a richer, deeper engagement with content and community, both inside and alongside the content, leveraging Copia’s many immersive features to gain the most in educational benefits.
“Every aspect of Copia has been designed with the student in mind,” states Ben Lowinger, EVP of Copia Interactive. “From studying with friends to professor interaction, from blowing off steam to taking and sharing notes, Copia has created the ultimate online campus experience.”
“We were looking for much more than just another e-book reader for our Executive MBA and Presidents and Key Executives MBA programs,” says Adib Nasle, Executive Director, Executive Programs at the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University. “We were looking for a complete end-to-end solution that combined the latest in digital reader technology with relevant social components in order to enhance the student
experience. The Copia team delivered a complete turnkey solution that was both OS/vendor neutral and easy to
use. We could not have asked for a better partner than Copia.”
Copia has already established key partnerships with the largest operators of college bookstores in North America and, by mid-2012, “Powered by Copia” solutions will service over 50% of the U.S. college bookstore market. Copia also works closely with educational and trade publishers to make available the digital content and social engagement key to delivering the ultimate in digital education.
In the K-12 market, Copia has been selected by a key market channel partner to develop a digital solution to be offered alongside the partner’s current physical global distribution network.
