Q: What am I buying in the bookstore?

Campus eBookstore

A: The bookstore has partnered Campus Ebookstore so that students can purchase the exact digital content that is associated with their course. In the store, you will purchase paper cards that have a 12 digit code. These codes are activated in the store when they are purchased. All you have to do is follow the directions on the card and redeem your content online.

On the right is a sample of what the cards you purchase in the store look like. You will find the cards along side all the other options for any given course. In the example, the cards will be located alongside the other BUS 130 course materials. Our shelf tags will indicate whether the online contect is required or optional for the course.

Thank you for your purchase of a digital course material product from the Camosun College Bookstore. To redeem your digital course material product, follow these steps:

1. On your in-store card, there is a 12 digit redemption code. This is the code for your product.

2. Underneath that access code, there are three steps. The first step is to go to www.campusebookstore.com/redeem. Do this next.

3. After you’ve arrived on the redemption page, select the province or state in which your school/institution is located.

4. After you’ve chosen the province/state, choose your school.

5. After you've identified your school, enter the 12 digit redemption code on your in-store card into the redemption code field.

6. Then, enter your email address. After you’ve entered your email address, please tick the box saying that you “understand that this product cannot be returned, refunded, or exchanged once I complete this redemption process.” Please be certain that: You have purchased the correct product and that you are not planning to drop your course.

7. If your code is valid, you will be prompted to the “create a password page”. Please note that sometimes the code is not active. If this is the case, please follow the directions at the top of the page and wait 1 hour for the code to be activated. If it has not been activated after this 1 hour, contact your bookstore for assistance - you will need to identify your purchase at this time so bring your receipt (online or paper).

8. If you’re prompted to create a password, then please do so. It is a unique password which is extremely important in accessing your digital products. It is very important you remember this password as you will need it later in the process.

9. Voila – your product has now been redeemed.

Q – How do I download and view my digital course-material on a second device (e.g. Windows and Android, Mac and iOS, etc)?

A: It’s possible that you’d like to view your digital course-materials product on multiple devices. This is absolutely possible and rather straightforward. Simply follow the steps in the instructional videos or this FAQ for that device. Just be sure to use the email address you used to make your purchase and the password you created during the redemption process.

 

Q – I received the error message “Adobe Reader cannot open 'URLLink.acsm' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded)” What do I do?

A: WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Thank you for your purchase of a digital course-material product. Some students receive this error message because they are not using the appropriate program to view their digital course-materials.

Please recall that, as it says in the instructions which came with your digital course-materials, to view your product on PC or Mac you must use Adobe Digital Editions; Adobe Digital Editions is often confused with Adobe Reader but Adobe Reader will not work. On occasion, Adobe Reader is set as the “default program” by accident when students first attempt to view their digital course-materials.

After you’ve successfully redeemed your product code, downloaded and activated your reader software (as demonstrated in other videos) and downloaded your digital course-material, the final step is to get that product into Adobe Digital Editions. There are two ways you can open your product in Adobe Digital Editions.

1. Drag the digital course material file into Adobe Digital Editions OR

2. Right click the file and select “Open With” and then select “Adobe Digital Editions”

You must use Adobe Digital Editions on PC or Mac to access your digital course-materials.
