A course based access key can be purchased through a bookstore and can be used to subscribe to a zyBook rather than a student directly purchasing their subscription through us with a credit card.
To use a course based access key, the student should first navigate to their zyBook.
To navigate to the zyBook, students should either,
- Click on an LTI link in Canvas/Moodle/Brightspace/Blackboard/etc.
- Enter the zyBook code provided by their instructor in the field on the library page.
The option will depend on whether or not your instructor decided to create links.
From there they will see a field to enter their access key.
Once the access key has been entered the price of the zyBook will drop. If the course based access key covers the full cost of the subscription, the credit card field will disappear.
