It's important to report course materials requirements and pricing to students early. Your inventory management system and website are the best places to post that information as soon as you confirm Inclusive Access adoptions. Below are two suggested messages to make sure students shopping ahead know what Inclusive Access is, the cost of their course material, and how they will pay for it.
Create a dummy ISBN for each IA item. In the Title field of the dummy ISBN, insert the following:
DEPT 1234 - (INCLUSIVE ACCESS) DIGITAL MATERIAL DELIVERED VIA (LMS). NO ACTION REQUIRED. YOUR BURSAR ACCOUNT WILL BE BILLED $55.00 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 STUDENTS SAVE MONEY. ALL STUDENTS IN THE COURSE HAVE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE DIGITAL MATERIALS DURING (SCHOOL NAME)'S COURSE ADD/DROP PERIOD. IF YOU WANT TO BUY THE MATERIALS IN ANOTHER MANNER, YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THE PROGRAM VIA (LMS). ALL STUDENTS WHO KEEP THE DIGITAL MATERIALS AND DO NOT OPT OUT WILL HAVE THE DISCOUNTED COURSE MATERIALS FEE OF $55.00 BILLED TO THEIR BURSAR ACCOUNT.
