Paperight and Together We Pass launch Now What? A guide to studying with Unisa

now-what_together-we-pass-paperight_cover_20130228

Paperight and Together We Pass are proud to announce the launch of our new book, Now What? A Guide to studying with Unisa.

With upwards of 300 000 enrolled students – including a full third of South Africa’s tertiary student body – Unisa is the largest university in Africa, and one of the biggest distance-learning institutions in the world. By enabling people of all ages to study a wide range of courses in their own time, Unisa has entrenched itself as a valuable part of many people’s lives.

But as with most things, distance learning has its pitfalls. Without daily contact with peers and professors, distance learning can be difficult to plan, manage and fund – plus, doing all of those assignments and studying for all those exams by yourself can be terribly lonely.

“We’ve spoken to hundreds of Unisa students throughout South Africa about their distance learning problems,” explained Paperight’s Content Manager Tarryn-Anne Anderson, “and it turns out that there are a lot of problems with studying through Unisa, problems that nobody really tells you how to solve. How should I plan my degree? How can I finance it? How do I find other people I can share tips with?”

Now What? is here to answer all those niggling questions. A short, friendly guide to the biggest problems Unisa students say they have, Now What? includes sections on:

  • degree planning
  • time management
  • joining a study group
  • effective and enjoyable studying
  • keeping motivated
  • dealing with stress
  • understanding exam questions
  • finding and managing funding
  • getting in touch with Unisa’s different departments

and more flashpoints of distance-studying angst.

So, if you’re in need of a little help in your time of study-induced frustration, get your copy of Now What? from any Paperight outlet. And join our Facebook group – where you can find study partners and share exam tips – while you’re at it!

Lifesaving medical manuals for healthcare professionals

EBW Healthcare publishes an innovative series of distance-learning books for healthcare professionals, developed by the Perinatal Education Trust, Eduhealthcare, the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation and the Desmond Tutu TB Centre, with contributions from numerous experts.

Their aim is to provide appropriate, affordable and up-to-date learning material for healthcare workers in under-resourced areas, so that they can manage their own continuing education courses which will enable them to learn, practise and deliver skilful, efficient patient care. Health practitioners and facilitators from around Africa say that wherever EBW Healthcare’s books are studied, the quality of care improves, so much so that many of the educational methods developed by the Perinatal Education Trust are now being adopted by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Paperight is proud to have these lifesaving manuals – covering topics as diverse as perinatal care, birth defects, and adult TB care – in our print-on-demand library. To find a list of all healthcare manuals published by EBW Healthcare, simply click here.

Project H is here!

(Click here to access a .pdf of this poster that you can print out!)

Looking for something to break the exam stress, the holiday boredom, or just need something exciting to read?

Project H is South Africa’s first murder mystery graphic novel, and it’s available to buy from Paperight. Lovingly illustrated and expertly written, Brandon Carsten’s debut book is a bonafide thriller. The story of a Capetonian cop made redundant in a utopian South Africa – a reformed country seemingly without crime, poverty or belief in God – who is forced to investigate his wife’s murder and the truth behind a nationwide revolution, Brandon Carsten’s debut book is set to be a hit for comic enthusiasts and newcomers alike.

Need posters for your business? We’ll design them for you!

This week, Paperight hasn’t designed a poster for all of its outlets. “But why?”

Don’t worry, we haven’t abandoned you. We’re taking a break from making Paperight-branded posters to offer you a complimentary service. For the next two weeks (or perhaps even longer – who knows?), we’ll redesign and rebrand our posters to go with your business’ branding: your colours, your logo, your details.

We’ve found that, by working with some of South Africa’s biggest and most innovative copy chains, that your brand is the most important factor in getting customers through your doors and getting them to print more in your shop. We’ve seen rebranded posters and adverts help bring in thousands of rands’ worth of custom to some of our most active copy shops. But many outlets don’t have the in-house advertising and design skills to make this a feasable advertising strategy.

So, how’s about we make a deal you can’t refuse? Our content posters, plus your business’ branding, for free.* It’s the least we could do for you, because, without our outlets, we can’t succeed in our mission of putting every book within walking distance of every home.

If you want a rebranded poster for free, or if you just want more information, simply mail team@paperight.com, and we’ll hook you up.

*That is, of course, only if you are a registered Paperight outlet or rightsholder.

Exam troubles? We’ve got your back!

(Click here to access an PDF that you can print out up to A2 size and use in whichever way you want. Oh, and this week we’ve also got one in isiXhosa! Click here to get it.)

How soon is it until matric finals start again? Pretty soon, right?

We’ve been having a lot of requests for posters to help outlets advertise our wonderful matric exam packs in the run-up to this year’s finals, so we thought we’d send out one that any outlet can use to advertise in-store or out. (The gap at the bottom is for your logo/address/whatever you want.) This poster is optimised to be printed at A2 size, but, of course, can be printed at A3, A4, A5 or anything else you wish.

Oh, and in case you’re looking for them, click here for full lists of our comprehensive packs of matric past papers for NSC languages and NSC non-languages.

Featured on Paperight: two-dozen gorgeous tomes from Modjaji Books (and an Ingrid Jonker Prize-winner)

What’s up? Here’s a new poster to stick up in your Paperight outlet. (Click here for access to a PDF that you can print out.)

As part of the deal we made with the fantastic African Books Collective earlier this year, we have secured a specially-curated handful of novels, short stories and collections of poetry from esteemed independent South African publisher Modjaji Books.

Modjaji’s books are ones that will, at varying times: make you chuckle under your breath; make you sob under your quilt at night; keep your page-turning index finger very well exercised; make you think, “Hm, that’s very interesting, indeed. I never thought of it like that before.” They are books searingly South African in genesis that also cover themes and emotions universal in spirit. Emotionally in-tune and beautifully wrought.

To sweeten the deal, we’re also featuring a trio of Modjaji’s famed collections of local poetry, one of which was awarded this year’s Ingrid Jonker Prize for English Poetry last week: missing, Bev Rycroft’s deft and confident journey through the trials of illness, is a debut collection to be savoured.

For a full list of Modjaji’s gorgeous books on Paperight, simply click here.

Now on Paperight: the Harmony High Series for Teens

Hey you! Here’s a brand spanking new poster to stick up in your Paperight outlet! (Click here for access to a PDF that you can print out.)

Harmony High is a great South African success story. By reflecting the true lives of South African youths (with an extra sprinkle of drama, naturally), Harmony High’s teenage tales of lost love, betrayal, peer pressure and not-so-petty crime are putting to rest the myth that South Africans (and especially South African teens) don’t like to read.

Since its launch one year ago, the Harmony High series has been read by thousands of teenagers and adults in book form and on Mxit.

This week’s poster sees the first two Harmony High books to be put on Paperight: Broken Promises – the tale of a young woman with stars in her eyes held back by the backstabbing men around her (including her mom’s new boyfriend) – and Two-faced Friends, a story about moving to the big city and finding out that the lights and the cool kids aren’t as wonderful as they first seemed.

With great stories at affordable prices, now every teenager can read a story that reflects their life, their problems and, most importantly, their ambitions. With your help, Paperight and Harmony High can #getteensreading!

Paperight outlet poster: Awesome African fiction!

Outlet poster: African fiction

Well, hello there! Here’s a new poster to stick up in your Paperight outlet! (Click here for access to a PDF that you can print out.)

Although in past weeks we’ve been focusing on mostly education resources in our little newsletters, we should emphasise how much Paperight has to offer recreational readers, too! Apart from our awesome and ever-growing library of classics, we’ve recently listed a whole bunch of new vibrant African fiction on offer on Paperight. Leading the charge is acclaimed South African author Arja Salafranca’s brilliant collection of short stories, The Thin Line, which has recently been longlisted for this year’s prestigeous Wole Soyinka Award. We also have amazing books from Zimbabwe, Ghana, Kenya, North Africa and everywhere in between.

In other cool news, our new-style featured content poster now allows you to scribble in the prices your outlet will charge for the printing of certain books. Want to make some books more appealing than others? Simply write in a flat cost for the printing of a book that will cover both the licence fee and your service charges, to help your customers know how much a certain book will cost up-front. Simple!
