Course Materials: Overview

Please visit any of the sections at left to learn more about the course materials you'll either need to purchase or can access in your classroom. 


You may be required to access articles from the Walden Library as part of your course readings or to complete assignments. Visit this section for more information about how to access the Library's article databases or Course Guides.


Ordering your course materials in a timely manner is an important part of getting prepared for your courses. Because of this, Walden makes the course materials list available at least four weeks before the start of each course. Learn more about how to order materials directly from the Walden bookstore - or to locate your materials list to purchase from another vendor - by visiting this section.


E-books are becoming more popular for students, but they come with additional questions and technology requirements. Please review this section for more information about e-books and VitalSource, the bookshelf program many e-books are accessed through.

Videos & Media

Many courses include videos in their weekly resources. Learn more about how to locate those videos and how to play them in this section.
