Delgado Partners with Barnes & Noble College on New Course Material Delivery Model

November 30, 2021

To Drive Student Outcomes through Equitable Access, Convenience and Affordability

Delgado Community College announced today that it has partnered with Barnes & Noble College to implement Delgado Course Complete, a course material delivery model that will drive student success by ensuring all students are prepared to begin learning on the first day of class.

Delgado Course Complete, an innovative course material delivery model, addresses equitable access, convenience and affordability across all courses at an institution by bundling the cost of course materials into tuition and ensuring students have all of their materials for the semester available on or before the first day of class. In addition, Delgado Course Complete  fully supports academic freedom and faculty choice. Faculty members can choose the materials that are best suited for their teaching, regardless of publisher or format.

“Delgado Course Complete creates accessibility for all students from the very first day of the course without leaving home. No more waiting in lines, no more wondering where to get books or supplies, and no more concern about getting the right book right away--Delgado students will be ready the first day of class with everything they need to succeed and save money,” said Angela Camaille, Delgado Director of Instructional Technology, Support and Professional Development.

Delgado Community College will implement Delgado Course Complete beginning January 2022 for the spring term. Before the start of the term, students will receive an email from the Bookstore prompting them to select their preferred delivery method. The Bookstore will prepare the materials for each student, and notify them when the materials have shipped or are available for in-store pickup. Digital materials will be delivered directly through students’ learning management system.

In addition to Delgado Course Complete course materials, every enrolled student will receive access to personalized support through bartleby’s 24/7 online study platform. Students will receive asynchronous tutoring from subject matter experts, as well as access to an AI-powered writing tool that provides grammar and citation support, along with an accidental plagiarism checker.

“We are excited to partner with Delgado Community College to bring Delgado Course Complete  and the bartleby suite of online study products to their campuses. Ensuring all students have convenient access to affordable course materials is a foundational step in preparing them for academic success. Through Delgado Course Complete, we can provide students with their materials at even lower prices, available to them before the first day of class,” said Jonathan Shar, EVP, BNED Retail & Client Solutions, Barnes & Noble Education.
