Ordering Convenience

Your Online Bookstore already makes it easy for your students to order the course materials they need, but why not make it even easier? These ordering enhancements are designed to optimize student convenience and increase ordering accuracy, while providing a variety of available options to help them save.

Auto Order

By bundling course material costs with tuition, Auto Order ensures students will have the right books before classes begin, without having to place their own orders. This is a popular choice with private sector schools and universities.

CourseLinks makes the ordering process easier for students by using basic scripting to link them directly to their course listing within your Online Bookstore so they can easily find and purchase their course materials. The flexibility of CourseLinks allows you to integrate it within the registration process, your online syllabus or anywhere in between.

Shop by Schedule

Shop by Schedule simplifies the ordering process for students. After logging into their Online Bookstore, students will immediately see a pre-populated list of all the course materials associated with their schedule. Not only does this allow your students to spend less time ordering, but is also helps to ensure they receive the right books.

LMS integrations

LMS integrations range from providing student access to digital content from the LMS to the full functionality of the Online Bookstore into their LMS. This combination of convenient access and a selection of affordable options benefits students, learning outcomes, instructors and institutions alike.
