We have been delighted with our partnership with Kortext who have delivered digital textbooks to our students for the last two years and who, in our opinion, continue to innovate ahead of any other provider in the market. We look forward to our faculty and students, who are big users of Microsoft Office 365 and Kortext, benefiting from this new partnership.

Kortext Analytics is an easy to use and intuitive dashboard. I can see how many students on my psychology course have accessed our ebook so far, which is extremely useful to know.

In 2014, the University of East London provided 4,000 first-year students with Samsung Galaxy devices, which were pre-loaded with the Kortext app. The following year they extended to 7,000+ students.
We are delighted to be putting support directly in the hands of our students and providing them with a state-of-the-art learning platform for the duration of their studies. Our support for equality of opportunity is one of UEL’s defining values, and providing our entire first-year intake with Samsung tablets – pre-loaded with core textbooks and links to virtual learning resources – ensures there is a level playing field for all of our students.

This year, Middlesex University will roll-out Kortext institution-wide to over 18,000 students, following a successful pilot with its business and law schools. At Middlesex, students use their own devices, with single sign-on through Moodle, for easy access to their digital textbooks. Students received a free textbook for every module (4-6 textbooks). The library team have led the implementation:
The project has a simple aim; to provide a free ebook to every student for each module they study. This is a clear message for student recruitment and demonstrates support for the student learning experience in the provision of essential resources.
