What is includED?

In the includED program, students access all of their course materials in the Blackboard environment. The eText and the digital resources usually accessed with an "access code" are now deeply integrated into the course. This benefits students by offering the convenience of paying for materials with tuition, by eliminating the wait time in bookstore lines, by eliminating the need to create additional passwords, and most importantly it increases student success by ensuring that all students are prepared the first day of class.

Special Message for ICN Students

ICN students will be billed directly from Ivy Tech Community College for includED materials.  Your home institution does not collect fees for eTexts and digital resources so you will need to make payment to Ivy Tech when you receive this bill.

Accessing your Textbook Materials

On the first day of your class, please log into your course in Blackboard. You will find information about includED and how to access your digital resources in the Announcements, the Start Here button, and in the Class Sessions.

Optional: Low-Cost Print Copy of Textbook

If you would also like a print copy of the textbook, you can purchase a low-cost version through the online bookstore.

Benefits to students:

  • Convenience of paying for materials with tuition
  • Eliminates wait time in bookstore lines
  • Eliminates the need for additional passwords
  • Increases student success by ensuring that all students are prepared for the first day of class

Spring 2016 semester includED classes will automatically receive electronic textbooks and materials.
