How do instructors set up an account? 

Materials on the instructor sites are only available to Faculty and Administrative Staff at Higher Education Institutions who are approved for SAGE Review Copies. If an instructor already has an existing SAGE account, the current user name and password will allow access to the Instructors’ site.  

To create an account, please click here. In order to be approved, you must provide your institution and the course that you are or will be teaching. Once you have created an account and you have been validated as a faculty member, you will have access to the instructor site.

Please note: Validation takes approximately 24-48 hours. 

How do students set up an account?

Student study materials are free, open-access and do not require an account. Once the student clicks on the hyperlink, the resources are available for use. ​

Is this compatible with my LMS?

Course cartridges are available for SAGE edge sites, and some sites include SAGE Coursepacks that can be imported into your LMS. They provide you with flexible, editable content in formats which import easily into most major learning management systems. This course cartridge includes all the assets found on the Instructor Teaching Site and relevant links from the Student Study Site in an easy to upload package. Course cartridges are compatible with the following LMS’s:

·         Angel 7.4

·         Blackboard 8 and 9

·         Canvas

·         Desire2Learn

·         Moodle 2.0

You are welcome to add a link to our companion sites from your LMS. Instructors may also download material from the site and upload it to their LMS.​

How long do I have access?

Instructors and students have access as long as the book is in print. Once a new edition of the book comes out, the site is updated shortly thereafter.
