Course Materials Submission and Distribution

Course materials submission and distribution process details are emailed to all faculty and support staff 4-6 weeks in advance of the course material submission deadline. The email includes a "Course Preparation" checklist and deadlines for the term. Course materials go on sale to students approximately two weeks before the term begins and are delivered digitally through a Study.net course site.

Overview of Course Material Submission Process:

  • Fill out the Course Materials Request Form - Provides Kresge Learning Support Staff with all of the relevant details for Study.net course site set up. This form is REQUIRED for all courses, even if you WILL NOT require a course materials pack. Submit one form per class.
  • Include a Table of Contents/citation page - Cite all items to be included in the course materials. Identify materials being used for the first time, and provide specific copyright details if known.
  • Digitally submit materials - Email properly formated PDF files of your materials to kresge_learn@umich.edu. If files are large, use M+box or drop box to kresge_learn@umich.edu. If files are not available, submit hard copies to the Kresge Learning Support Team (Debie Gurkin, Fred Jablonski, Emily Schlaack, or Halley Todd) or email us for a pick up from your office.
  • Include any additional materials or instructions - Include cases, simulations or any other special requests that need to be coordinated in the cost with your materials submission. Identify if they will need to be distributed in the Study.net course site or as a hard copy handout. Include the date needed by or when used in the course.
  • Items typically processed as a no cost packet, such as lecture notes, can be included on the course site at no charge to students or you may opt to use CTools.

Email the Kresge Learning Support Team if you will not be able to meet the deadline date or have any questions.
