D2L Brightspace: Set-up Follett ACCESS links in your course


What is Follett ACCESS? How do I set-up links in my D2L Brightspace course to provide student access to eBooks and other materials/activities?

What is Follett ACCESS?

Follett ACCESS is digital textbook program through the official University bookstore.

  • When faculty adopt the Follett ACCESS program for their courses, students pay a fee to the University as part of their course registration, rather than paying for textbooks and materials another way.
  • Faculty then set-up links in their D2L Brightspace courses to provide access to the digital textbooks and other course materials/activities.

How do I set-up Follett ACCESS in D2L Brightspace?

To set-up links for Follett ACCESS, there are 3 possibilities. The option you will use depends on the textbook publisher and materials you have adopted:

  1. Courseware: If you are using a digital textbook, as well as course materials, learning activities, quizzes, etc. from a publisher, you will use your publisher links to provide access for students. You will only set-up your relevant publisher links in your course. Some examples:
    • Cengage MindTap, WebAssign, CengageNowv2, Owlv
    • McGraw Hill
    • Sage
    • Wiley
    • WW Norton
    • ...or other publisher links that may be available in D2L Brightspace! (Note: Pearson products are a special case, see below.)
  2. eBook: If you are only using a digital textbook with the Follett ACCESS program, you will use the:
    • BryteWave: This is a link to Follett ACCESS BryteWave eReader which provides access to your students.
  3. Pearson: If you are using Pearson products such as MyLab and Revel, you will set up both Pearson links and BryteWave links:
    • BryteWave: This link is needed for students to obtain their Pearson access code.
    • Pearson: These links are needed for students to access their MyLab and Revel materials.

Notes: For assistance with publisher courseware set-up, please contact your publisher representative. Follett ACCESS BryteWave eReader is a version of a product called RedShelf.
