Lumen Learning FAQs
Why are Lumen course materials so affordable?
Lumen courses are designed using open educational resources (OER)–learning materials that reside in the public domain or are licensed to allow them to be freely used and repurposed by others. Because our content doesn’t rely on the traditional (expensive) textbook model, we can offer very cost-effective course materials to faculty and students. We can also make quick, timely updates without waiting for multi-year publishing cycles.
Are Lumen course materials accessible?
Yes. Lumen courseware aims to adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) Level AA Success Criteria, a standard that meets or surpasses requirements for Section 508 compliance. Standard design features include text readability via screen readers; alt-text for every image; quality captioning and transcripts for every video or multimedia piece; and text alternatives for interactives and simulations.
How much do Lumen course materials cost?
Standard pricing for Lumen’s Waymaker courses is $25 per enrolled student. Select a payment option that works best for you and your students: via a course materials fee, an activation code purchased at the campus bookstore store, or an annualized institutional fee.
Do Lumen courses work with my LMS?
Lumen supports simple, seamless integration with Blackboard, Canvas, D2L Brightspace, and Moodle. Students and faculty can access Lumen course materials through your institution’s learning management system. Waymaker and OHM courses also offer automatic grade return for built-in quizzes and graded assessments.
What courses is Lumen courseware available for?
Lumen provides great course materials designed using OER for 50+ subjects across multiple disciplines. We focus on introductory courses, general education, and developmental education.
