BOSTON and SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cengage, an education and technology company and Chegg, the Smarter Way to Student™, today announced an exclusive partnership to increase students' access to more affordable materials and help them succeed in their studies. At launch this August, all Cengage Unlimited subscribers will receive a month of free access to Chegg's Learning Services, including Chegg Study, Chegg Math, Easybib Plus, a Chegg Service, and 60 minutes of tutoring through the Chegg Tutors platform.
Announced this past December, a Cengage Unlimited subscription gives students access to all the company's digital higher education course materials—more than 22,000 products across 70 disciplines and 675 courses—for $119.99 a semester, no matter how many Cengage materials they use. Students using the digital platforms have the option of free print rentals, paying only a $7.99 shipping fee. After paying the one-time subscription fee, students will access a centralized easy-to-use dashboard offering access to the vast Cengage library of content and digital learning platforms and, starting in August 2018, will include access to Chegg's Learning Services.
Subscribers will receive access to a 30-day trial subscription of Chegg Study, which provides step-by-step solutions to problems in more than 28,000 college textbooks, and a database of more than 13 million expert questions and answers. Additionally, Cengage Unlimited users will receive similar access to Chegg Math, an artificial intelligence-based mathematical equation solver; EasyBib Plus, a Chegg Service which helps students learn and improve sentence structure, grammar, spelling, and identify when and how to cite their papers to prevent plagiarism, and 60 minutes of 1-on-1 tutoring from subject matter experts through Chegg Tutors.
"The extraordinary response to Cengage Unlimited since launch underscores how the market is ready for bold action to remove the cost barriers that for too long have limited students' learning," said Todd Markson, Chief Strategy Officer, Cengage.
