Solano Community College / Pearson eCollege Deal

A Northern California school, Solano Community College, has cut a deal with Pearson to allow its students using Pearson textbooks to pay a flat fee to use the textbook but receive usage of Pearson’s LMS Learning Studio (formerly eCollege) and supplementary material for free.  Instructors are not mandated to use Pearson products, but this deal would apply to electronic materials for face-to-face, blended, and online courses.

This deal was struck after the college announced its decision to move from eCollege to the Instructure Canvas LMS.
