Would it be possible to get the syllabus language in a Word format rather than PDF so it would be easier to copy and paste into our syllabus? 


Absolutely, Kristen. We will update that ASAP! Good suggestion. @LaurenMcM

It would also be helpful if instructors had details on how students could transition from what we're using now to the newly available unlimited content. 


For example, I use MindTap with my textbook provided in loose-leaf copy at a substantial savings over the hardback book.  But it wasn't obvious to me what to do so that my students could duplicate this with Unlimited.  In fact, my rep even had to do some digging to find out that loose-leaf copies were available with Unlimited.  Without loose-leaf copies for students, I won't be able to use Unlimited.


Thanks for the feedback @tbmichael!  Yes, allowing students to ALSO have print and save money is an important part of the Cengage Unlimited experience.  Once a student has purchased a Cengage Unlimited subscription (is not in trial access) AND has activated their digital course (MindTap, WebAssign, SAM, OWLv2...) they can get a printed version of the title associated with their course. 


A print rental lasts the duration of their Cengage Unlimited subscription and costs just $7.99. (Shipping to and from is FREE!)  Or, the student can buy a discounted looseleaf copy and keep it forever. That is often the preferred choice for students taking multi-terms courses.  Here is where they'll find these options:

NOTE: The print rental flow (how students request their rental) is slightly different with a couple of our platforms (ex. iLrn) but our customer service team is ready to assist any students in need.
