During the COVID 19 pandemic, Laredo College decided to pilot with a select group of faculty an "all-inclusive" program. The advantages of the all inclusive program is that it provides students with an ebook at a discounted rate, the cost for the all-inclusive program is rolled into the student's tuition, and more importantly it provides students with access to course materials on day one within their learning management system.
