The Auburn University Bookstore is hosting an event Thursday, March 23, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in 2222/2223 Student Center to introduce the All Access course materials delivery model to campus. All Auburn faculty and instructors are invited. The event will be come and go as schedules permit, with a short presentation about the program at noon. During the event, faculty can meet with seven publishers and four digital content partners to discuss how their classes can participate. Bookstore staff will also be present to answer questions and show how students experience All Access. Refreshments will be provided throughout the event.

In the All Access model, course material content is moved into digital delivery, usually integrated directly into the course page in Canvas. Faculty benefit when every student has access to content for their class from the first lecture day. Students benefit from having the exact right material at a great price, usually 30 to 65 percent cheaper than previous options. Students enjoy free access for the first two weeks and can then decide if the program is right for them. Students can opt out of the program and get their own material, or stay opted in and the charge for the course's material is added to their next e-bill.

The All Access program has been developed on campus during the last three years. In spring semester, 20 courses used All Access, representing more than 6,400 students. On average, fewer than five percent of students chose to opt out of All Access, drastically increasing student engagement with material for these classes. This spring, the program also saved students $178,000 on the costs of taking those courses that participated. Faculty report very high satisfaction after participating, and student feedback has been positive as well.
