CourseSmart®, the world's largest provider of eTextbooks and digital course materials, today announced that it has saved students more than $100M on eTextbooks and digital course materials since it was founded in 2007.  CourseSmart has the most comprehensive library of higher education content available, offering over 90% of the core textbooks in use today, or 30,000 titles from over 33 publishers, for a guaranteed, upfront savings of up to 60% less than the cost of a new print textbook.

"CourseSmart was founded on the principal of expanding access to higher education by offering students significant savings on their required course materials, and as the cost of earning a degree continues to rise, it is essential that students have digital options. We could not be more proud of reaching this significant milestone of saving students more than $100 million dollars," said Sean Devine, CEO of CourseSmart.  "CourseSmart's savings go beyond the textbook sticker price, because students can access their digital course materials without having to purchase a dedicated device or specific eReader."
