zyBooks partners with leading online and for-profit universities to craft customized curriculum solutions that are proven to improve outcomes for non-traditional students. 

Improving Student Experience

Integrating zyBooks into DeVry University’s Introduction to Programming course improved student outcomes.

  • Student success (achieved A-C) increased from 76% to 91%
  • Persistence to following CS course increased from 85% to 90%

Reducing Student Attrition

Theory-based practice implemented in Quantitative Reasoning courses using zyBooks at the University of Phoenix led to reduced attrition and wide implementation of the new practice.

  • Average attrition in QR1 decreased from 17.5% to 4.7% after implementation
  • Average attrition in QR2 decreased from 13.9% to 4.0% after implementation

“zyBooks built the tools for what it would be like to sit with a student one-on-one, and walk them through piece-by-piece, topic-by-topic to demonstrate the topic to a student, and ask the student to then demonstrate understanding of that topic.”

How zyBook Partner Solutions Works

zyBooks collaborates closely with academic clients to develop customized curriculum. Our consultative process includes:

Learning objectives mapping

What content do we have in-house; what gaps do we see

Content mapping

How do we fill those gaps; what TOC do we recommend for course design

Custom authoring

Converting and adapting content, authoring new content

Custom course configuration

Synthesizing the steps above; content you want students to see, at the pace you want them to see it

“One book, custom configured.”

Partner Solutions Senior Partner Program Manager Samantha Weald explains custom configuration on the zyBooks platform: 

“zyBooks made textbooks really easy to edit and modify; things like re-ordering chapters, re-ordering content within chapters, placing rich instructor notes in-line the text, the ability to write custom content in the text that merges seamlessly, and the ability to inline lectures, videos, formative quizzes and assessments, readings, and coding assignments.”
