DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 10th February 2021 – Knowledge E is pleased to announce a new partnership with BibliU, a pioneering learning content management platform that makes digital textbooks and learning resources more accessible and affordable to academics, institutions, librarians, and students.
The higher education landscape has shifted in response to the global pandemic, and, as a result, institutions must harness technology to deliver learning in new ways. BibliU’s learning content management platform automates and streamlines the identification, selection, procurement, and provisioning of textbooks, monographs, and other digital learning content, enabling higher education institutions to reduce their costs, while providing greater access to learning resources.
With partnerships with over 2000 academic publishers, a catalogue of over 2 million titles, and deep integrations with university systems, BibliU makes textbooks and supplementary reading materials more accessible, a mission that goes hand in hand with Knowledge E’s vision of developing a more knowledgeable world. As part of the partnership, Knowledge E aims to bring BibliU’s digital textbook platform to the Middle East, supporting its growth and enhancing its presence in the region.
“We are so excited to be working with BibliU. The Middle East’s higher education sector is undergoing a transformative change with the adoption of new technologies, and BibliU will be an invaluable tool here, offering access to high-quality tertiary reading content and empowering learners and universities. As we are dedicated to making education accessible to all, this partnership is a natural fit.” said Ahmed Youssef, Head of Sales at Knowledge E.
“While most publishers and institutions do their utmost to provide textbooks and learning materials to all who need them, the underlying economics, as well as obstacles created by hybrid learning, mean that millions of students world-wide do not get access to the resources they need,” said Dave Sherwood, BibliU Co-Founder and CEO. “We’re proud to partner with Knowledge E, joining them on their mission of enabling continued innovation and development in higher ed in the Middle East.”
