Timing: As soon as you receive an Inclusive Access adoption
Course material requirements and pricing should be communicated to students as early as possible. Your inventory management system and website are the best places to post that information as soon as you have a confirmed Inclusive Access adoption. Below are two descriptions you can use to make sure early shoppers understand your IA program, how they will be charged, and how much they will pay.
- Create a dummy ISBN for each IA item. In the Title field of the dummy ISBN, insert the following:
[Department number] - [Inclusive Access] DIGITAL MATERIAL DELIVERED VIA (LMS). NO ACTION REQUIRED. YOUR BURSAR ACCOUNT WILL BE BILLED [PRICE] FOR MATERIALS.
- Attach each IA item to its course.
- Add this note in Course Notes (or whatever field will display on the store’s website):
YOUR INSTRUCTOR IS TAKING PART IN THE [INCLUSIVE ACCESS] PROGRAM FOR THE [TERM] SEMESTER TO HELP SAVE STUDENTS MONEY. ALL STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE COURSE WILL HAVE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE DIGITAL MATERIALS DURING THE [SCHOOL’S NAME ]COURSE OPT-OUT PERIOD. IF YOU WANT TO PURCHASE THE MATERIALS IN ANOTHER MANNER, YOU MAY OPT-OUT OF THE PROGRAM VIA [LMS]. ALL STUDENTS WHO KEEP THE DIGITAL MATERIALS (THAT IS, THOSE WHO DO NOT OPT-OUT) WILL HAVE THE DISCOUNTED COURSE MATERIALS CHARGE OF [PRICE] BILLED TO THEIR BURSAR ACCOUNT.
