Multiple year level access for each student!
Last year, Oxley College moved away from traditional hardcopy textbooks to the provision of an online textbook library with hundreds of texts from some of the world’s leading educational publishers. Traditional paper textbooks are heavy, expensive and restrict the student to a single resource for each subject. They are easily lost, damaged or forgotten.
The library of digital textbooks from Learningfield will offer our students the following significant advantages across the majority of their subjects:
The cost of online textbooks is significantly cheaper than paper and will be based on our students’ textbook use at each year level. Online annual textbook subscriptions to Learningfield will be organised by the school and charged to the student’s accounts.
In 2018 our students will continue to use their online textbooks from LearningField however English novels, and some specialist texts do not form part of this subscription. Rather than mandate a single supplier for these texts we recommend that families use their own choice of supplier, or, for the best possible price, online tools such as http://booko.com.au list the lowest prices from a range of suppliers.
You must use the ISBN rather than the title when ordering the books.
