The Campus Store is excited to expand the Inclusive Access (IA) initiative on the University of Utah’s campus. This program takes the digital version of a text and places it directly on a student’s Canvas page, allowing broader access while drastically reducing the cost of course materials.
As the university moves further into the digital age, IA programs are a crucial component to ensure student success, especially given the major push from publishers to stop providing physical, printed books.
Textbook publisher Pearson will no longer offer print materials for titles that also use courseware (the homework component offered in conjunction with the e-text). In an effort to mitigate the supply chain issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Cengage is also shifting its focus to promoting digital learning materials.
Students will receive an email at the beginning of the semester explaining how to access course materials and will be charged automatically on their tuition bill. The program offers a variety of benefits, including day-one access to course content, the ability to view material from anywhere and offering an easier way to search and study a text.
If students are not interested in participating in the program, they can opt-out before the drop period and will receive a refund on their tuition bill.
