Study.Net Unveils New Site With Self-Publishing Capabilities

Jun 15, 2010, 07:00 ET from Study.Net Corporation

SALT LAKE CITY, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- As electronic delivery of academic material continues to grow, Study.Net Corporation this week unveiled the newest version of its Web site at www.study.net.

A long-time leader in the electronic delivery of academic content, Study.Net has expanded its service to support self-publishing for both instructors and students.

"We continue to enhance what our business has provided for more than a decade: an innovative, convenient and cost-efficient method for educators to provide relevant content - in all of its forms - instantly to their students," said Jay McGoodwin, President and CEO of Study.Net Corporation. "The addition of self-publishing for instructors and students is a natural extension of sharing knowledge and leveraging the value of the Internet."

Among the key features of the site, Study.Net's historical content delivery platform has been expanded to allow instructors and students the means to package original content in up to 20 different file formats, assign a royalty to that content, and make it available for purchase and use by Study.Net users around the world.  Instructor content is added to a database that can be adopted for use in a course by other registered instructors. Original content published by students is added to a store available to other students.  

"Publishing and distributing your own content can be challenging because the numbers are usually small and even minor glitches in production or distribution can wreak havoc in a class," said David St. Clair, Professor of Economics at California State University, East Bay. "Everything has to work well to make it a success. Fortunately, Study.Net provides an indispensable platform for putting it all together and making custom publishing work."

Study.Net's ability to make original content available immediately is as convenient as it is profitable. Professors at more than a dozen schools have already used Study.Net to deliver their own content electronically and collect usage royalties.  Students can promote the sale of their original content to thousands of like-minded, highly receptive peers.  For both, Study.Net manages content delivery, customer service, usage reporting, and royalty payments.
