Available only to members, this service provides students with a seamless experience when accessing course materials via your secure course area and/or eReader app.
In what format are materials accessed?
The materials accessed by students are pdf files. Each item is sidenoted with the course details provided during the ordering process (tutor, course title, course start and end dates).
Will my students need to login to the material?
No technical Digital Rights Management software (eg protectedpdf) is applied to the material so, once they’ve logged in to your secure course area or eReader app, your students can access our material without an additional user name and password.
How does ecch provide the material?
ecch provides a link to each item purchased for this service. The link should be used on the course area and/or eReader app for students to click on to access each file. Two weeks after the course has finished the link automatically expires making it easier for you to manage copyright requirements.
