XanEdu allows faculty to assemble sets of course materials (including articles and book chapters), obtain copyright permissions from publishers, and create electronic or physical course packs for students to purchase through the College bookstore. The request process for course packs should be initiated four to six weeks before the beginning of classes.
You will have two options for constructing your pack:
Electronic course packs can be accessed through Moodle or a XanEdu app. (Because of the bookstore transition, integration with Moodle may not be immediately available.) Articles available through library databases can be incorporated into electronic course packs without paying for additional permissions from rightsholders.
Printed course packs will eliminate the need for students to print out readings, but resources already available through the library cannot be included without an additional cost for copyright clearance.
The following information is provided to give faculty an idea of what to expect when ordering XanEdu course packs. The cost for permissions from the rights holders will make up the largest piece of the final pack price and these royalties vary widely depending on the publisher, the content and the format. Though there are additional costs for the production of printed packs, we've noticed that rights holders may charge more for royalties on electronic packs, so prices are often comparable.
The final cost of each pack will include:
Electronic packs will include a $0.41 charge per reader applied for the printing of the saleable keycode.
Printed packs will include these additional charges:
Please note that links to library resources will not be subject to royalties, XanEdu Standard Copyright Clearance fees, Content Prep fees or FolioX fees.
