An Open Education Week event.

In an effort to make course materials more affordable and accessible, many campuses, including Wayne State University, are experimenting with "Inclusive Access" programs. Designed by the textbook industry, Inclusive Access is a sales model that adds the cost of digital course content into students’ tuition and fees—in other words, automatic textbook billing. While the advertised benefits of these programs have been widely promoted, there are also drawbacks for students and faculty that deserve equal attention. Join this special Open Education Week webcast from inclusiveaccess.org to get the facts on what Inclusive Access programs are, explore how they differ from open models like OER, and examine whether Inclusive Access is "inclusive" at all.
