This document describes how to submit orders for digital content for course sections using the Order Tool. The content ordered will be viewable in the Engage tool or a publisher Digital Learning Tool (DLT), depending on the materials ordered.
For accessibility concerns, please review Engage Order Tool - Accessibility & Usability Information
To see a list of terminology used in Engage, please refer to Engage - Engage Terminology.
Note: Only Instructors and Course Coordinators (curricular representatives) may order digital content for courses they have access to. Students cannot access the Order Tool. For more information on roles (also called profiles) in the Order Tool, please review this document.
Before ordering eTexts/DLTs, it’s important to understand ordering periods. Please review this information before beginning the order process.
Note: You can search ISBN, by title, or by author. Typically, ISBN is easiest. If you're having trouble finding your eText/DLT, you can use the filters to show only eText, only DLT, or only a specific publisher. If you still cannot find the correct materials, you can submit a Content Request. These requests will be reviewed by Unizin and the materials added to the Order Tool's catalog. It should be noted that, depending on when submitted, they may not be available by the time the order period closes.
After you've placed your order, nothing more needs to be done. The eText attribute will be added to your course in the Course Search and Enroll app before enrollment begins. You do not need to enter anything additionally into Faculty Center.
If your course is crosslisted, you must place an order for both sections. For example, if you’re teaching Finance 300, which is crosslisted with Econ 300, you will need to place an order for both Finance and Econ 300.
At this time, it is not possible to order for multiple sections at once in the Order Tool. Orders must be completed for each section.
If you are teaching a course that is using Engage and a new section is added after you've placed your order, you will need to order your eText/DLT for the new section. If the ordering period has passed, please contact the DoIT Help Desk to have a case sent to the Engage Team to get that ordered.
If a section is dropped, you do not need to do anything - the order will cancel automatically.
The order tool provides several options for modifying your order, once you’ve placed it:
