Follett Discover Adoption Resources

The Texas Tech Campus Store is introducing its new tool, Follett Discover, for reviewing and adopting course materials.  Follett Discover enables faculty and faculty proxies (e.g., a departmental administrative assistant) to easily discover, research, and adopt course materials in a single interface, including non-traditional materials such as YouTube videos, open education resources (OER), and MOOC content.
