Digital Textbooks and Course Materials Pilot – Opportunity for NECC faculty!

February 8, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Massachusetts legislature recently funded a one-year grant to eliminate textbook costs for students at select institutions. The cost of learning materials is a very real obstacle for many of our students, and we’re happy to announce that we are one of seven schools selected to participate. There will be two webinars to learn how you can use Lumen Learning free of charge for uses such as the following:

  • digital courseware assigned as the primary learning resource for a course
  • digital materials assigned as supplemental materials for a course
  • placement tests

Wednesday, February 8, 2023 @ 3pm EST. Register here.

Friday, February 10, 2023 @ 1pm EST. Register here.

If you are interested in receiving additional information about the grant, learning more about Lumen and its courseware, or would like to check out the materials in a sandbox demo course shell in Blackboard, please contact Sue Tashjian ( or Natalie Chakrian (
