Textbook Affordability through Digital Textbooks

Did you know that 85% of students delay or avoid purchasing course materials? The biggest reason for most students is cost. To combat this, UIC’s bookstore has launched a pilot program called Direct Access, which allows students immediate access to their course materials in digital format on the first day of classes. This option offers students a more affordable alternative to hard copy course materials. 

Join us for this brief webinar led by Redshelf, one of our Direct Access vendors, to learn about e-textbook options and view a short demonstration on how to add digital textbooks in your Blackboard course.

Date and Time: Tuesday, October 30, 2018 from 12:30pm-1:30pm
Location: Hosted online through Zoom
