Students Across the Caribbean
The Caribbean Shared Educational Resources Service (CSERS) is a collaboration between Datalore Inc and its partners in education, technology, retail and community to provide a digital content delivery system for Schools, Colleges and Universities in the Caribbean region.
Studenteportal is the access point for all content whether purchased online or through any of the bookstores in the region.
One eBook Space
The Caribbean region is unique in that texts used are sourced from several countries and areas depending on the level and course content. CSERS has developed a digital warehouse of titles aggregating the titles from regional and international publishers – Caribbean, USA, UK, Europe and India.
CSERS provides an online store www.studenteportal.net for purchases and rentals. To ensure easy access by all students CSERS has developed a bookstore network through which bookstores can make codes available instore.
Offline readings apps allow students access to their books without having to be connected to an internet service.
OPENING NEW OPPORTUNITIES
The aim of the CSERS project is to provide the following opportunities to the Caribbean market.
To provide affordable and easily accessible texts to all students across the region.
To provide a platform through which Caribbean teachers, academics, authors of general materials, educational bodies and publishers of educational content can disseminate resources relevant to our region.
To increase literacy among our students by encouraging reading in a manner consistent with the current generation’s mode of engagement.
In the past, it was burdensome to buy expensive books for one semester and never use them again. Through the Studenteportal, I am now able to rent and buy affordable eBooks.Camille Straker
