What is inclusive access?
Inclusive access in higher education refers to providing all students with equal access to course materials and resources, regardless of their financial status, ability, or any other characteristic that may impact their ability to learn.
Wiley Inclusive Access provides students and faculty with instant digital access to required materials on or before the first day of class at substantial savings—so that every student can come to class prepared and ready to learn.
What are the benefits of inclusive access?
These programs provide a range of benefits for students, faculty, and institutions, including:
Increased student success
With inclusive access programs, all students receive access to the same course materials, which can lead to higher levels of student success. When students have access to the materials they need, they’re more likely to stay engaged and perform well in their courses.
Inclusive access programs can provide significant cost savings for students, often offering course materials at a reduced cost compared to traditional textbook purchases. This can help to alleviate financial stress for students, particularly those from low-income backgrounds.
For students from historically marginalized or underrepresented groups, inclusive access programs can help to level the playing field. By providing equal access to course materials, these programs can help to reduce achievement gaps and promote equity in higher education.
Inclusive access programs can make course materials more accessible for students with disabilities or other learning challenges. For example, digital courseware can offer features such as text-to-speech functionality, which can help students who struggle with reading.
For faculty and staff, inclusive access programs can simplify logistics, as they don’t have to manage individual courseware orders and deliveries. This can save time and resources, allowing faculty to focus on other aspects of their teaching.
Overall, by promoting equity, accessibility, and affordability, these programs can help to create a more inclusive and supportive learning environment for all students.
