New Cost at College: Digital Access Codes - ANN CARRNS, NY Times

Digital books and study tools don’t weigh down backpacks as heavy textbooks do. But fees for the codes to get them may be a financial burden for some college students, a new report found. An analysis from the Student Public Interest Research Groups, state-based groups that advocate for causes like affordable textbooks, found that students in many courses may be asked to purchase online educational materials that require one-time digital access codes. The codes are unique serial numbers that give students access to a variety of online materials, like digital books, study guides, homework assignments, quizzes and tests. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/24/your-money/a-new-cost-at-college-digital-access-codes.html?_r=0
