In 2017 Oxley College will move 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:
Updated publications from publishers such as Cambridge, Pearson, Macmillan and Nelson are added to the library as they become available. Students need not be limited to last year’s text books.
Annual paper textbook costs are as much as $500. Online annual subscriptions to learningfield will be organised by the school and charged at the following rates to student accounts:
|Years 7 & 8||$152.00|
English novels and some specialist Year 11 texts are not available online and must be purchased as a paper copy. We recommend http://booko.com.au to find the best possible price online or contact your local bookshop with book title and ISBN details.
