This fall, students at colleges and universities with bookstores managed by Follett Higher Education Group will have another digital textbook option. Follett and Inkling Systems, Inc. today announced a partnership to offer Inkling's enhanced, interactive digital textbooks through the more than 900 college stores operated by Follett as well as online via efollett.com®. Inkling's interactive textbooks will be available to Follett students through any Web browser and also on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Inkling titles include numerous features such as video, interactive assessments, animation, music, slideshows and 3D models.

Follett's partnership will also give students the option of purchasing the entire Inkling textbook or the ability to "Pick 3": a cost-saving alternative that allows students to buy just three chapters for a fraction of the price of a full textbook.

Through the agreement, Follett continues to expand its strong assortment of digital textbook offerings, which includes more than 35,000 titles on its popular CafeScribe® platform. Follett also becomes the largest distributor of Inkling products.
