RedShelf Adopt provides flexibility to define the “submitter” - the person responsible for submitting adoptions. “Submitter” is the generic term for this person, whether it is the Department Chair, the Textbook Coordinator, or the Instructor.
The submitter is defined in courses/sections when the term is created or updated. In most cases, the submitter is the instructor of the course, and therefore these two terms (“instructor” and “submitter”) may be used interchangeably in documentation.
The adoption process for instructors starts by receiving an email. When the Campus Store Manager sends the email from RedShelf Adopt, the instructor receives this:
If no materials need to be adopted for the sections listed, simply click “No.” This will display a page confirming the response was submitted and no further action is necessary.
If there are materials to adopt, click "Yes" to be automatically signed onto the RedShelf Adopt tool and view a list courses that need action.
To submit an adoption, click on the desired course tile for the detailed view, as shown below.
Search for materials by Title, Author, or ISBN.
Select one or more items to add to the "Materials Selected" list.
Materials can be added manually by selecting "Add Material." Complete as many fields as possible to request materials that did not appear in your search results.
Use "Add Material" to adopt other items, like calculators and lab goggles. When finished adding materials to the "Materials Selected" list, click the submit button.
Review enrollment information for each section, and click "Continue."
If the progress bar indicates that the process is now complete, click "Logout."
