UT Professors should consider Cengage textbook subscription service

The average textbook spend for college students is $607. According to NBC's review of Bureau of Labor Statistics data, textbook prices have risen 1,041 percent since 1977—this is three times the rate of inflation. Since students must purchase their assigned textbooks, they cannot prevent these rising costs. 

A program by Cengage could solve these problems. Cengage Learning is launching a Netflix-style subscription service for US students, offering unlimited access to digital textbooks and online programs for $119.99 a semester. UT professors need to consider adopting this subscription service to help alleviate soaring textbook costs. 

Few people want students to pay insane prices for textbooks, and by working to use subscription services, professors can significantly lower the cost of higher education for all college students.
