New Textbook Adoption and Insights Portal
I am happy to announce that the Barnes & Noble at Buffalo State Bookstore has launched the Adoption and Insights Portal (AIP), a new source for researching, adopting, and sharing insights about textbooks and course materials. AIP will replace the aging FacultyEnlight as we begin the fall and summer 2021 course material adoption process.
This new portal will help us achieve our goals of student success and retention by ensuring that 100 percent of course material adoptions are submitted by the adoption deadline each semester.
Submitting your adoptions early and directly to the bookstore ensures that students will get the right materials for their courses at the most affordable prices.
With the new platform, faculty and department administrators can
- save time with the one-click re-adopt feature,
- research and adopt course materials in one convenient place,
- compare estimated student price and available formats before adopting,
- review affordable alternatives, like OER and BNC OER+ courseware,
- learn about affordable options like Price Match and First Day,
- receive 24/7 support.
AIP can be found in Blackboard under the list of courses on your home page. It can also be found on the Faculty Resources drop-down selection under Textbooks on the B&N website. Please feel free to e-mail the bookstore with questions.
