eBook Admin: Manage License Providers

This article describes how you can give teachers permission to assign student eBooks from your license pool.  A teacher that has been made a license provider of a particular student eBook will have that license available to assign to students. Note:

  • Teachers enrolling with a PIN are automatically made license providers of the corresponding student eBook.
  • If you manually assign a teacher an eBook, you have the option to make the teacher a License Provider for student eBooks.
  • If you create a new teacher user, you have the option to make the teacher a License Provider for student eBooks.

You could also allow teachers to become License Providers of teacher eBooks. A user that has been made a license provider of a particular teacher eBook will have that license available to assign to other teachers.  Typically, you are a eBook admin to have such permissions.

A license provider for either student or teacher eBooks does NOT actually get either eBook.  A license provider can only give other users eBooks!

1. After logging in as a eBook Admin:

  • Select 'Manually Assign Teacher License' from the 'eBook Admins' menu.
  • Select 'Manage License Providers'.
  • Select the 'License Pool' if you have more than one.
  • Select a teacher.

2. Choose the eBooks that the user needs to be a license provider for.

  1. All licenses in a pool are shown up to the maximum amount set in the 'Per Page' box. 
  2. Click the 'Selected Only' button to view only the licenses the user is currently a license provider for.
  3. If the box next to the license is checked then the user selected above is a license provider for that license.
  4. Click the box next to 'All' to allow the user to be a license provider for all licenses shown in the current view.

Warning!!: Be sure you do NOT allow the teachers to be license providers for teacher eBook licenses. Only allow Faculty Admins and eBook Admins to be license providers for teacher eBook licenses.
