Paperless Education in India

Manipal Digital, a premier IT solutions firm based out of Manipal, India has initiated a paperless classroom initiative for Indian colleges by introducing an e-textbook distribution system.

 Manipal Digital, a leading pre-media service provider for eBook technologies has recently announced the availability of MiDistributor, an easy to use textbook distribution platform for the higher education market in India. Mi-Distributor is an end-to-end solution for managing and distributing e-Textbook to students in colleges and universities.

Under this platform, publishers can directly push their textbooks through the platform to Universities. The universities in turn create special log in credentials for their students using which the students can download all their textbooks right into the devices of their choice.  With MiDistributor in place, students can now avoid carrying physical textbooks to class and can access their textbooks anytime and anywhere using their devices.

Manipal Digital, a wholly owned subsidiary of the print giant Manipal Technologies Ltd. and a part of the $1 billion Manipal Group, is dedicated to digital transformation of businesses and institutions. The ability of adding Interactivity to the learning content for the students is something really interesting and we have seen high demands for such technologies in the education sectors. When we developed Mi-Distributor, we wanted to create not just a textbook distribution platform but also a space for interactive learning for the students" stated Santhosh Shanbhag, Operations Head, Manipal Dig
