With “Netflix for Education,” Cengage Hopes to Cut Costs, Improve Learning, and Increase Accessibility

Recently, Cengage made the news with their groundbreaking digital content platform, Cengage Unlimited, which gives students access to the full range of Cengage products for a subscription of $119 a semester.

But in a world where course materials are often printed, Googled, shared, or borrowed, can this new model really work? And if it does, how much money will students really be saving?

This year at the 2018 LearnLaunch conference, we had the chance to sit down with Cengage CTO George Moore, who was speaking at the event. In our interview, George not only discussed the topic of his panel, “How Can You Help Higher Ed Faculty Adopt Digital Instructional Tech?”, but also the ways in which Cengage is trying to innovate and open the doors to more learners with products like Cengage Unlimited.

Listen in to find out what George had to say about Cengage’s latest developments.
