About ProQuest SIPX (www.sipx.com)
A growing leader in digital content and online education, ProQuest SIPX provides proven cost-saving and scalable technology solutions to manage and share course materials under the SIPX® and ProQuest® brands. Developed from a Stanford University research project, the system draws together open access and OER materials, comprehensive publisher content and library holdings into an intuitive web interface that allows faculty or support staff to set up and share course readings with students.
ProQuest SIPX's unique technology makes access to course materials cost-efficient, easy and transparent, including recognizing individual user contexts that permit free or reduced cost access because of factors like library subscription affiliations or a student's geography. The solutions support many use cases, including seamless integrations with Learning Management Systems, library course reserves services, bookstores and copyshops, coursepacks, distance education, continuing studies and global open online courses/MOOCs.
Reported results from using SIPX: average savings of 20-35 percent for students on course materials, over 50 percent savings for institution-pay models and library reserves permissions budgets, copyright-compliance for the university and flexibility to support a wide range of faculty's preferred teaching platforms, granular analytics insights for school and library on course material selection and student engagement, as well as cost-recovery opportunities for school- and instructor-owned copyrights.
