Although much of student work within the McGraw-Hill program is on specific assignments, it is also possible to access the full ebook (electronic version) of the textbook used in the course.
When you are on the main/home screen for your course (which has the list of assignments), you will see a link to the book (with a picture of the book cover) either to the right or left of the assignment list. (The example below has the link to the left.)
**If you do not see the assignment list when accessing Connect from Blackboard, try logging in to Connect from outside of Blackboard.
2. Enter your email and password (school email address and whichever password you used to register for the course in Blackboard)
3. Click on the course associated with the ebook you want to access
4. You should see the page with the list of assignments and link to the ebook.
Students taking almost all Business (BUS) and Accounting (ACC) courses, along with a few other courses (currently ALH102, ALH125, ALH285) will be charged a "course materials fee" when they register for the affected courses. This will allow students to have full access, from the first day of class, to the McGraw-Hill Connect/SmartBook program without needing to do anything except log in to Blackboard.
There are a few business courses that do not use the McGraw-Hill program, so students will still be responsible for purchasing books/materials as needed for those courses.
Any questions about the course materials fee, including the procedure for opting out, please contact Karen Jury, Textbook Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-728-2249). Please contact the Textbook Coordinator BEFORE purchasing any materials yourself if you are considering the opt-out.
