What Should Be In A Course Pack?

Creating a course pack is a wide open proposition – giving you the flexibility to tailor an anthology which contains the material you wish to teach, unconstrained by the limits of a textbook.




You may wish to include:

  • Your original material
  • Lab exercises
  • Problem sets
  • Class notes and handouts
  • Course syllabi
  • Study guides and old tests
  • Works in the public domain, such as governmental publications, and works with expired copyrights


And the following items, which are usually copyrighted*:

  • Journal, magazine, or newspaper articles
  • Excerpts from traditional textbooks
  • Chapters from a novel, anthology or poetry collection
  • Out-of-print texts
  • Diagrams and maps
  • Transparencies
  • Case Studies


Your chosen combination of materials can help foster a unique learning experience for your students.  With a customized course pack you can think outside the box.  If you have something you wish to include that is not on this list, give us a call, and we’ll work together to help make it happen!

*Written permission from the copyright holder must be obtained for every copyrighted work, every semester.  Please know that this process can take up to 6 to 8 weeks.  Plan accordingly to help us meet our joint goal of having your course pack on the shelf by the first day of class.
