Rafter Introduces Textbooks-in-Tuition Service

November 19, 2014

Rafter, the course content provider that spawned from the textbook rental company BookRenter, on Wednesday announced a new service that ties textbook costs to tuition and automatically delivers course materials upon registration. The service, known as Rafter360, enables faculty members to select the course materials they intend to use in their courses, which are then delivered to students either digitally or shipped to homes or campus bookstores for pickup and returned at the end of the course. In pilots at Thomas More College and Schreiner University, students reported saving about 50 percent on textbook costs.
