I'm including some links below that explain the new CCCOnline agreement with Pearson Education for digital textbooks. The first link is on the faculty wiki, which explains the digital materials charges for students, and our relationship with Pearson. The second link is on the student wiki, and it explains how digital textbooks work in a CCCOnline course. Please let me know if you think we need to provide further information.
