Using Online Materials from Textbook Publishers
As an instructor, you may decide to use publisher-based course materials, assignments and tests in your online class. Due to publishers keeping most of their support information as proprietary and confidential, the ID team is limited in the assistance we can provide both students and instructors.

Publishers offer their own comprehensive technical support for their products. If you require help with publisher content, you may need to reach out to the publisher (or your sales representative) directly. We’ve provided contact information for several publishers on this wiki page for your convenience.
