Follett+Lumen Partnership

Follett company logo

Lumen partners with Follett, the leader in campus store management. This partnership makes it easier for faculty members to discover, review, and adopt Lumen’s OER courses. It also gives Follett institutions easy options for how to work with Lumen through the campus store, with no administrative markup on Lumen materials!

Lumen Learning’s OER courseware is readily available to more than 1,200 colleges and universities where Follett manages course materials delivery. Follett has committed to zero markup on Lumen OER course support fees paid for through Follett bookstores.

Lumen’s low-cost OER course materials offer significant cost savings to students compared to traditional textbooks, along with automatic day-one access to course content. Lumen’s standard pricing applies with no bookstore markup: $25/student per term for standard implementation and $33/student per term for Success Accelerator.

Visit Lumen’s course catalog to discover courses available through the Follett+Lumen partnership, or download the course list. Options include Waymaker courses that blend OER with personalized learning, and OHM math courses designed with OER and a flexible, robust online homework system.

Lumen courseware curates the best available OER and adds timely updates, learning design, and technical support: a much easier starting point for the transition to OER. You can teach with any Lumen course as-is or customize it to fit your learning outcomes, term length, modality, and so forth.

Read more details in the joint public announcement by Follett and Lumen in April 2017.
