Course Materials Adoption Training for Faculty - Choose the session that best fits your availability - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
What do I do if I already know what textbook I want to use? Normally I use the one from the previous quarter.
@Julio best practice is to go into the Follett Discover Tile in My Portal and check that your previous course materials have been imported correctly and make any changes.
Will classes show on the student's dashboard if they are on the wait list, but not enrolled?

Did I miss it or can students order used texts through Follett?
De Anza Bookstore FAQ website https://www.deanza.edu/bookstore/
Do textbook adoptions roll over from quarter to quarter, or must faculty go in and submit textbook adoptions every quarter for their courses?
Can you order materials for a section of a class that isn’t yet staffed?
@ Ron. Adoptions roll over but best practice is to go into the Follett Discover Tile in My Portal and check that your previous course materials have been imported correctly and make any changes.
Can students use myportal to access?
@ Chris Yes absolutely!
Winter 2022 adoptions due November 15.
How can we let students know whether the materials are REQUIRED or optional
@ Marc there is an option within FollettDiscover
If I don’t answer your question in chat I’ll ask Matt in the Q&A.
My students just buy the Aleks software directly through Aleks.
Only students who use the vouchers need to go thru the bookstore.
how does this work?
@Renuka you would want to adopt the materials in the FollettDiscover tile in MyPortal so your students can use their financial aid to purchase.
If there are packages that a publisher is offering (like if you purchase digital, you can get looseleaf for a very low cost etc, will they be listed at the Follett site?
Can you repeat who we should contact if the course name is listed incorrectly?
Are the subjects lists sorted by De Anza/Foothill nomenclature or general Follett names for each area?
I will ask Matt your questions that we already have in the chat first
Who is the contact person in case we get technical difficulties?
Max Gilleland-DMT Dep't
How will we be handling Material fees
Thank you for the information session.
I’m not clear how the department advisor or administrator functions work, especially as I cannot access the app because I have no courses listed.

Not sure if already covered, but if not- what opportunity/process for return of books (student drop) or text resale?
what if I have technical problems?
Is there a quick place we can get a list of our textbook reps?
Who do we contact if we have technical difficulties?
… if we need to contact them to get together with Follet
I have an e-text from Pearson I've used for 5 classes and want to continue using for Winter 2022. Cannot find the title on the Follet My portal site. How I do overcome this hurdle?
Sorry if this was asked before - just curious where will we be able to access the recording for today's meeting?
The Actg. Dept. participates in an inclusive access program which includes a negotiated price with Pearson, the publisher. In the past, the Bookstore ordered the e-text and the hard copy for Actg 1A, Actg. 1B and Actg. 1C. Will that be the same with Follett?
@ Yasmine. Yes we will post to the FH & DA websites and send out to academic senate presidents
Adding on to Sara’s question - I have the same question but with WW Norton
I have a text that I wrote and is sold thru Amazon or the bookstore has stocked it. How do students get it thru you? Thanks
I just reached out to Norton now
How do we order desk copies?
Thanks JOHN SWENSSON
Matt, will the ISBN for Inclusive Access e-text and the hard copy be the same as before?
Do you have soft copy of instructions that we can make available to faculty?
Can you also send it to me?
Do you have a link that you can post in chat?
