IN THE KNOW
Improve Compliance with EZ Opt-Out Functionality
While our new Course Materials Platform will be ready for adoption shortly, you don't have to wait to leverage our EZ Opt-Out functionality for Inclusive Access programs! Our All-In Access proprietary technology streamlines the opt-out process for Publisher Direct Content within a school’s LMS. This gives students a clear path to decline materials, improves DOE compliance for schools, and enables publishers to block access to students who opt-out. Further, our exclusive technology validates usage and transactions so schools don't overpay and publishers receive accurate compensation.
4 Ways to Deliver Successful Inclusive Access Programs
Inclusive Access requirements appear to be quite simple - students enroll in a course and automatically receive their course materials in time for the first day of class. Yet implementation can be difficult without the necessary controls in place. Specifically, schools must provide a clear and compliant way for students to opt-out, which sometimes is easier said than done.
Hear One School System's COVID-19 Survival Story
The CSPEN COVID-19 webinar series recently featured leaders from Ambassador, Aviation Institute of Maintenance, Centura College and Tidewater Tech, discussing the system's 13-week plan to survive the pandemic. The presentation also featured considerations for supporting students throughout the distance learning process, including the importance of equitable access and course materials fulfillment.
Learn How Schools are Supporting Students and Faculty Via Remote Learning
Ambassador has partnered with the Imagine America Foundation to create a platform where schools can learn how their peers are responding to the COVID-19 crisis and supporting students and faculty via remote learning. Additional podcasts are being added each week. Live and archived presentations are available through Imagine America Radio.
