    Faculty and Department Administrators

    We’re excited to introduce the Adoption & Insights Portal (AIP), your source for researching, adopting and sharing insights about textbooks and course materials. AIP will be replacing Faculty Enlight going forward.

    In partnership with the Clemson University, we are introducing this new portal to help us achieve our goals of student success and retention by ensuring course material adoptions for all future semesters are submitted at a 100% submission rate by our adoption deadline. We will be holding a training session for those who would like further guidance on using the new system on an as needed basis.

    Submitting your adoptions early and directly to the bookstore, ensures that students will get the right course materials for their course at the most affordable price.

    With the new platform faculty and department administrators can:

    • Save time with the one click re-adopt feature
    • Research and adopt course materials in one convenient place
    • Compare estimated student price and available formats before adopting
    • Review affordable alternatives to your selection, like OER and BNC OER+ Courseware
    • Learn about affordable options for your students like Price Match and First Day
    • Receive 24/7 support

    As a part of this launch, we have also integrated the platform with the campuses Single Sign On (SSO) technology. You can conveniently access AIP from here.

    Please see the Adoption video.

    Please reach out to your Bookstore Manager with any questions or comments.
