How to Redeem Codes For Digital Course Materials
Already ordered? Look at your receipt. Does the course material say Campus eBookstore, VitalSource or Canvas?
All purchases are verified and connected to your CWL account for access, which requires you to purchase the materials through the UBC Bookstore in order to get a receipt that provides the redemption codes. If the cashiers swipe your student card at the time of purchase, this will automatically grant you access . If you purchased your textbook secondhand from another student, there is no way for you to activate your course materials in Canvas.
Canvas refers to materials that are integrated into your course site. If a course material includes “Canvas” in the name, this indicates that there is a digital component accessible within Canvas that is included with your purchase. Your instructor will give you more instructions in class.
The free trial is 14 days. After that time you must either purchase your course materials online or purchase them from the bookstore. Activate your purchase in Canvas using your receipt number.
- Login to your course at canvas.ubc.ca
- Go to “Modules” to select the digital materials you need to access and click “ Redeem your purchase”
- Enter the receipt number (found under barcode)
- Enter the order number (found in order confirmation email)
- Click “redeem” to access learning materials
No, you do not need to buy both. If you buy the Canvas Digital option, this gives you both the eBook and Canvas access completely digitally. Buying the Canvas Print option gives you Canvas Access but packaged with a printed book instead of an eBook.
You MUST have your own receipt with your own receipt codes in order to access the materials. In order to avoid encountering issues accessing your course materials, please do not purchase with your friends on the same receipt.
