With such a diverse publishing industry in today’s technological, do-it-yourself times, why do educators and authors choose to publish with MyEducator? MyEducator, a publishing company founded by professors for professors, partners with authors to create interactive smart textbooks that are customizable, up to date, and affordable.
Our mission is to educate the world with high-quality learning materials that are simple to use and affordable, while providing excellent service for instructors, students, and authors. With this commitment to excellence, MyEducator has crafted a product and a process unparalleled in today’s publishing landscape.
MyEducator Authors Are In Charge of Their Resources
Relinquishing the copyright to material to publishers can be a major pain point. When authors partner with MyEducator to publish their resources, they retain full copyright to their content.
MyEducator encourages authors to be involved and stay involved in every step of the publishing process. Even after a resource has been published online and adopted into institutions, authors still maintain total control of the copyright and are often invited to continue work as updates are needed. Sometimes, MyEducator will even request the author help with additional resources as either a primary author or subject matter expert.
MyEducator Resources Are Affordable for Students
MyEducator resources are more affordable than other major online publishers. Authors can get their books into students’ hands for less while still maintaining quality materials and first-rate features.
Additionally, MyEducator’s publishing process cuts out a lot of the middlemen typically used in the publishing industry, leading to greater control and return on investment for authors.
MyEducator Resources Have Analytics
All resources on the MyEducator platform come equipped with analytics that allow instructors to see both broad and detailed snapshots of students’ performance. These analytics are key for instructors to know what to teach and how to teach, tailoring learning to individuals.
Authors will find that not all publishing companies can offer this feature. For authors intending to place their content in classroom settings, this feature is key to success.
MyEducator Resources Integrate Seamlessly with LMS Platforms
Another feature that authors should consider as they publish content into the world of online learning is how well their content will integrate with existing courses. Although MyEducator resources are crafted so they can function as standalone courses, some instructors or institutions may prefer to use the resources as supplements to existing courses.
With this preference in mind, MyEducator’s development team has worked hard to ensure a seamless integration between our platform and many of the most commonly used learning management systems, such as Canvas and Buzz. Assignments, exams, and grades are all automatically linked. This integration puts authors’ content in more classrooms.
MyEducator Resources Allow Authors to Provide Content in Multiple Media Formats
Academic authors understand there are many different types of student learning styles. With the MyEducator platform, instructors are able to reach more students’ understanding and skill levels. Through instructional videos, authors have the ability to explain concepts, discuss supplementary material, and provide real-world examples.
Additionally, MyEducator is committed to providing accessibility of the highest standards. Our media content accommodates those with disabilities and includes ReadSpeaker and captions for videos. Our team also provides transcripts upon request.
MyEducator’s Sales Teams Markets Your Resource for You
When authors publish with MyEducator, our sales team handles marketing the resource to institutions and other experts in the industry. While authors are encouraged to promote their publications within their own networks, they can rest assured that our sales team is working hard to promote their resources among institutions both nationally and internationally.
Students Have Lifetime Access to Their MyEducator Resources
Unique to MyEducator, students who register with a resource (whether independently or as part of a course) retain lifetime access to that resource—no additional fees or subscriptions required. And because updates are made within existing courses, students will always have the most up-to-date version without needing to purchase subsequent editions standard of other publishers. This makes MyEducator resources even more affordable for students.
Updates to MyEducator Resources Are Quick and Easy and Can Happen Anytime
Most publishers wait several years between revision cycles of their resources, but with MyEducator resources, authors don’t need to wait for a revision cycle. The benefit of the MyEducator platform is that authors can update their resources anytime, and the updating process is very simple.
Authors are able to make changes themselves or submit changes to be made by content specialists at MyEducator. The changes can be previewed in real time, and revision histories allow authors to review changes or restore previous versions.
