Course materials are defined as primary required teaching and learning content

Course Materials

Course materials are defined as required teaching and learning content:

  • textbooks and their equivalents, including literary texts
  • digital learning platforms
  • homework systems, etc.

Other supplies are not considered course materials for the purpose of course marking, such as:

  • clickers
  • lab safety gear
  • art supplies
  • required calculators and other technology, etc.

In other words, a course that requires a clicker or lab safety gear can still be marked as an affordable course if it utilizes otherwise free or low cost material.

Recommended materials are not addressed by this project.
