Macmillan Learning Inclusive Access

Use of digital learning platforms has been shown to reduce institutional costs up to 35%.

Inclusive Access is a program that ensures that every student has access to their course materials through their LMS on the first day of class.

How Does it Work?

Every school is different, so we work with you to meet your needs. In general, though, instructors choose their Macmillan Learning course materials by creating their course in Achieve and connecting it to the campus LMS. Or, if you're using an e-book only, we load that book into your LMS. Your school directly bills the students who take that course for their course materials. We charge you only for the students who take the course.

Inclusive Access is great!

The first semester we implemented inclusive access my emails from online students decreased dramatically. The first day of class all students have access to the materials they need for the course; thus, helping retention. There is no confusion about codes and trial access. The implementation process was smooth. The folks at Macmillan are readily available and helpful. We are very pleased with inclusive access.”
