Nov 29, 2012, 07:00 ET from ByPass Publishing

DUBUQUE, Iowa, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ByPass Publishing, a higher-education publishing start-up, has launched a new content-publishing application that is revolutionizing the textbook world. An alliance with ByPass is like bringing an educational publishing house right onto your campus.

Now, institutions can capitalize on the intellectual property at their own school. Instructors who are experts in their own subject areas can be part of a collaborative system to create high-quality, flexible online content that can be delivered to students in a variety of ways.

ByPass' unique process guides institutions step-by-step through each phase of the publishing process, making them a one-stop-shop for online textbook publishing.

ByPass identifies and supports several expert contributors from an institution's own faculty to create course content. If an institution does not have a full complement of experts on campus, ByPass can assist in recruiting qualified experts from a wide variety of US and International colleges and universities.

In addition to finding and organizing contributors, ByPass will edit, produce, and develop the content all the way from conception to the final platform-specific product, including illustrations and rich media.

The end result is flexible base content built for your students, yet individual instructors can fully customize the base content to reflect the flavor or focus of their specific course. Instructors can select and arrange chapters and student learning outcomes that apply to their course, and then personalize them all the way down to the sentence level. Instructors can also integrate their own hyperlinks, videos, audio and visuals resulting in a truly unique product specifically tailored to their course and syllabus.

These highly custom texts are then published to students online, accessible over a wide range of mobile devices. Students can purchase online access to their required content, and can also separately order a print version of the text.


ByPass Publishing was born disruptive, the result of its founders' intense focus on putting the power to publish into each professor's hands. An imprint of Kendall Hunt Publishing, ByPass and its collaborative team of educators, subject matter experts, and publishing professionals live by this motto: No Bookstores. No Boundaries. Nothing but Fastlane.
