Engage - Ordering eTexts/publisher Digital Learning Tools (DLTs) with the Order Tool

Note: The Order Tool is not accessible by students at this time; it used by Instructors and Course Coordinators for the express purpose of ordering eTexts and publisher Digital Learning Tools (DLTs) for use with Engage.

This document describes how to submit orders for digital content for course sections using the Order Tool. The content ordered will be viewable in the Engage tool or a publisher Digital Learning Tool (DLT), depending on the materials ordered.

For accessibility concerns, please review KB link doc

To see a list of terminology used in Engage, please refer to Engage - Engage Terminology.

Only Instructors and Course Coordinators (curricular representatives) may order digital content for courses they have access to. For more information on roles (also called profiles) in the Order Tool, please review this document.

Note: The Order Tool is only available for instructors and course coordinators that have been granted access.
  • Instructors: After you are designated as Instructor on Record for your course, you will be added automatically (within 24-48 hours).
  • Course Coordinators: Coordinators can order content on behalf of instructors. Try logging into the Order Tool with your NetID and Password. If your account has not been created automatically, please contact the DoIT Help Desk to request one.

Placing an eText/DLT Order

Before ordering eTexts/DLTs, it’s important to understand ordering periods. Please review this information before beginning the order process.

  1. During the Ordering Period, log into the Order Tool with your NetID and Password.
  2. Select Place an Order from the Navigation Menu. You will see ordering periods listed with available course offerings.
    Order Menu is selected, displaying dropdown menu that contains "place an order", "Order History", and "Content Requests".
  3. Filter the course list to locate your course
  4. When you have found your course, here is how you can place an order.

After you've placed your order, nothing more needs to be done. The eText attribute will be added to your course in the Course Search and Enroll app before enrollment begins. You do not need to enter anything additionally into Faculty Center.

Ordering for Crosslisted Courses

If your course is crosslisted, you must place an order for both sections. For example, if you’re teaching Finance 300, which is crosslisted with Econ 300, you will need to place an order for both Finance and Econ 300. 

Ordering for Multiple Courses

At this time, it is not possible to order for multiple sections at once in the Order Tool. Orders must be completed for each section. 

Modifying your Order

The order tool provides several options for modifying your order, once you’ve placed it:
