Working Without the Right Tools is Frustrating

We understand the frustration of students resorting to non-licensed content. It does them a disservice, the work is subpar, and it sheds a negative light on your campus. We know how important it is for you to reinforce the quality standards they’ll need in the workplace. Plus, not having a library at their fingertips wastes time as they search for that crisp clip that brings the project to life.
