There are several advantages to taking the time to confirm Inclusive Access adoptions with instructors and publisher reps via email communication (some stores even encourage the instructor and publisher rep sign a form stating their understanding of the program and pricing). These confirmations allow you to both confirm final pricing to students and tell instructors what to expect.
Timing: Send to an instructor as early as possible to confirm their participation in your IA program.
Thank you for participating in Example University Bookstore’s Inclusive Access program for [Term]. We are excited to be able to deliver your students their course materials on day 1 and at the lowest possible price!
We have you confirmed for Inclusive Access course materials distribution for CHEM 101 003 using Campbell Biology 11th edition RedShelf eBook. The price to the student will be $55.00, and your students will access the book through a link you place in your course in [LMS].
In the weeks leading up to the beginning of the term, you and your students will receive communications from Example University Bookstore. You will receive communication from me explaining the next steps for setting up access within your course in [LMS]. Your students will receive communications from Example University Bookstore explaining that their course is in the Inclusive Access program, what that means for them, and that they will receive instructions for access shortly before classes begin.
Your next steps between now and then:
- Please be sure to request your course in [LMS].
- Please provide me with a list of your TAs so that we can ensure that they do not get billed for the course materials.
Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you!
