More Professors than ever before are finding alternatives to traditional textbooks, including using their own locally developed content in their classes. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics data, prices for traditional textbooks have exploded, rising 812% since 1978, 135% since 2001. The fact that Professors are only using portions of the content makes the traditional model even more inefficient.
Frustrations with traditional textbooks are leading a rising number of College Professors to develop their own material. Many are using local printers to reprint their material and make them available as custom course packages for sale to their students. In this model, professors receive little to nothing for their hard work and the associated intellectual property created. The course packages themselves are limited to the confines of static print material, relative to a fixed point in time.

Conley Smith ePublishing, LLC (CSePub), a higher education software and publishing company, has targeted the inequities and inefficiencies in this outdated model to bring a new collaborative approach to creating economical, effective course content and homework programs. Our proprietary, cloud-based, electronic publishing platform simplifies the creation, distribution, and use of course content for both Professors and students.
We have collaborated with Professors in an array of disciplines, at many Universities to create and publish unique Course Packets, eBooks, Homework Programs, and Lab Manuals. Original material created as a PDF, Powerpoint, Excel, Word, or Google document is converted and published via the CSePub Platform in multiple formats, including HTML, and is device-independent. Students access the content, where ever they are, at any time, using any device that has access to a browser. Material can be edited in real-time to continuously improve it and maximize its current relevance. Let us enable you to immediately harness the power of the world-wide-web and make your instructional material come alive. CSePub is a truly amazing educational resource.Request a Demo

As an author with CSePub, I have direct access to the primary three members of the Conley Smith ePublishing, LLC team. Any specific curriculum or student questions are answered on the same day as they are sent to the CSePub team - Outstanding customer service! I am most impressed with two aspects of my partnership with CSePub; 1. Their team approach to continually improve our curriculum, learning platform, presentations, technology, customer service, and navigational tools in creating a user friendly online learning environment. 2. I am a person of ethics, principle, and loyalty - After three years of partnership, I still work daily/weekly with the same three individuals at CSePub that I started this journey with and that simply does not happen in the publishing world.

When we were developing our new electronic lab manuals, CSePub provided excellent technical capabilities and service and they ensured that the manuals were completed on time and offered to students at a cost that was far below the traditional paper lab manuals.
