Add Content to Your Course with One ClickVitalSource is committed to day-one success for faculty and students. In an earlier post we wrote about how to set your course up to facilitate this success (and hosted a webinar on the same topic). Today, we go a step further in making your course setup even easier using our Inclusive Access program.

Inclusive Access is a popular content delivery mechanism that VitalSource has supported for more than 10 years that gives your students access to all their digital materials on day one at a reduced rate.

In fact, the latest iPhone or Galaxy could guide 120,000,000 Apollo spacecrafts (the one that the US space programme landed on the moon in 1969) simultaneously. If the guidance system was available as a download from the App Store or the Google Play Store – and you had the time and inclination – you could put 64,000,000 copies of the programme on a 256-gigabyte mobile device. And they easily fit in a coat pocket or a rucksack.
