The Lyryx Model

null

Lyryx with Open Texts

“Education transforms lives!” (1) Lyryx is proud to support this global educational development and social responsibility framework by offering affordable and accessible educational material. Our open textbooks are available worldwide at no cost to the user, and are enhanced by affordable educational software that facilitates course delivery by supporting instructors in their assessment, and assisting students in their mastery of the material. Additionally, Lyryx provides comprehensive editorial services and dedicated in-house support to ensure seamless integration of the material within the course itself.

We believe that well-designed educational software, in our case, online homework and examinations, is an important part of the learning process as it provides an opportunity for students to practice and receive immediate, targeted feedback. Instructors’ time is also freed from creating/ grading assessments, allowing them to focus on the cognitive and social aspects of learning.

Recognizing that the open materials are offered for free, software licensing revenues are used to sustain this model. See “Pricing” for details on the cost of our online homework and examination platform.
