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 "Summer Course Preparation" checklist with deadlines for the term. Course materials go on sale to students approximately two weeks before the term begins and are delivered digitally through Canvas.
New course materials policyThis policy covers the service provided, format of digital and optional printed course materials, and distinguishes the difference between Required General Course Materials (cases and articles) and Required Special Course Materials (simulations, online tutorials, negotiation exercises).
Overview of Course Materials Processing and Distribution:
- After submission, Kresge Learning Services and Study.net create the course site, clear copyright permission, and set the price.
- The Kresge Learning Support Team sets up your access to the Study.net course site and provides you with a printed TEXTPAK if requested. A printed TEXTPAK is NOT made available on course reserves.
- The Kresge Learning Support Team sends you an email asking you to review and approve the Study.net course site. Add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email Contacts to insure you see this message in your inbox.
- After you approve the Study.net course site, Kresge staff posts an announcement on your CTools or Canvas site with information on purchasing course materials. This message appears approximately 2 weeks before classes begin.
- Students purchase access to the Study.net course site to view all digital content, including the ability to print and download content.
- Students may opt to purchase a printed TEXTPAK. The TEXTPAK print format is standardized - card stock front and back covers on white 3-hole punch paper. TEXTPAK cannot be purchased in lieu of digital course materials.
- University of Michigan Printing Services prints the TEXTPAK orders and delivers them to the Kresge Learning Support for student pick up. The printed TEXTPAK includes only those materials that are printable. I t does not include material links, website or spreadsheet files.
Email the Kresge Learning Support Team if you will not be able to meet the deadline date or have any questions.
