Electronic Course Materials
Electronic Course Materials (ECMs) are course materials that are available in a completely electronic format and are used exclusively in approximately 65% of Post University courses.  ECMs are comprised of materials that are developed and gathered by faculty to address specific program and course outcomes, and that best support effective student learning in the course.  These materials include everything from electronic versions of textbooks, articles, case studies to narrated PowerPoint presentations, YouTube videos, and electronic access codes that allow students to access customized publisher materials. ECMs are covered by an ECM fee, and are available to students in their courses on Day 1 of the term.
 
Post University has worked with book publishers to negotiate the lowest possible prices, thus Post University strongly advocates that students take advantage of the automatic, Day 1 access to ECM content for all ECM courses There are a few ECM courses where students will be provided the opportunity to opt-out of the ECM fee, these are the courses that make use of one (1), non-customized publisher e-book that is available through VitalSource.  Students enrolled in these courses will automatically be provided access to the E-book and charged the ECM fee, but they may choose to opt-out of the e-book access through a link specific to the course available on Post’s online bookstore.  Student who opt-out of the e-book access will have the ECM fee removed from their bill.
 
Students who choose to opt-out of ECM content, as described above, are responsible for purchasing the required course materials elsewhere, and they will not be eligible for an extension on course assignments while they await arrival of their course materials.  The opt-out process will be available one week prior to the start of the term and must be completed by the add/drop date for the term.
 
Online Bookstore
Course materials for Post University courses are available for purchase in the online bookstore at www.postbookstore.edu.  Students should plan to order course materials two weeks prior to the start date of the course in order to ensure that the materials, particularly textbooks, will be available for that class. It is the student’s responsibility to place their order with the Online Bookstore. Students may have the order shipped to their homes or shipped to the University and picked up at the Mail Room at East Hall.
