BibliU | February 10, 2023
On February 9, 2023, BibliU, an EdTech innovator democratizing content accessibility, received a contract from Lee College in Baytown, Texas, to provide the company's Universal Learning solution to the college. Lee College is BibliU's largest Universal Learning client, with approximately 8,000 students enrolled.
Utilizing Lee College's Learning Management System (LMS), BibliU's Universal Learning solution provides students with access to content on the first day of class and covers approximately 90% of the booklist. In addition, the solution eliminates many inconveniences associated with acquiring textbooks, including long lines at the bookstore and inaccessibility to course materials once classes begin.
BibliU had to demonstrate that it could provide Lee College learners with electronic textbooks and courseware on the first day of classes while saving students money to earn the contract. In the fall and spring, Lee College offers approximately 800 courses, while around 300 are available in the summer. Nearly 70% of classes require a textbook, and an estimated 18% of those classes also need courseware.
Dave Sherwood, Co-Founder and CEO of BibliU, shared, "Prompted by high costs and the possibility of burdensome debt, many young people are questioning the value of attending college." He added, "I believe that college provides opportunities that should be available to everyone. A digital-first, ed tech solution is a path forward for colleges, offering affordable and available content on the first day of class."

The CE Shop is the first leading provider of online professional education to offer this form of flexible learning for the Connecticut Salesperson Pre-Licensing course.

The state of Connecticut sets no time limit on the final exam, and you can take the Salesperson Pre-Licensing Exam as often as you want. Most people can finish their real estate education and pass their examinations within a month or two. They can then start a career in real estate and earn the average real estate agent salary in Connecticut, which is $90,726 per year, according to Indeed.com. The real estate market in Connecticut is one of the best in the country, and The CE Shop is an ideal place to learn about your next career.
After taking the Connecticut Pre-Licensing course and passing the final exam, a new real estate license is accepted in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Ohio, and Rhode Island. This is because of a reciprocity agreement between the states. All applicants from Florida, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio, and those from reciprocal states who still need to take a written test, must take the State Portion of the Connecticut Real Estate Examination.
