That includes acquiring software from the electronic textbook platform CourseLoad, and adding all of the State University System of Florida. Penn State and Ohio State to the consortium membership list. Reasons for joining Unizin? Iowa stressed content management and learning analytics while Oregon State was living up to its land-grant status, and Ohio State listed accessibility and affordability.
