Lecture texts online

Starting in September students will be able to order their lecture notes online.

At present the lecture notes are sold at the WUR-shop, a system that results in long queues at the desk there. The facilities management department expects to reduce the queues by making it possible to order lecture notes in advance. Students will then only have to come and collect their packet. It will also make things easier for lecturers. At present they have to let the facilities management department know how many copies they want. From September a lecturer will only have to deliver one digital copy of his or her lecture notes, which will then be printed to order. Students will also be able to access the lecture notes on line and download them themselves if they wish. The lecture notes and ordering procedures will be available through the users’ portal on the Eduweb.
