Yes. For starters, course material information is made available online to students as soon as faculty adopts it. If a student needs to postpone purchase or rental of traditional and non-traditional course materials until later in the term, the information will still be there for them when they need it.

By providing easier access to more diverse and interesting materials, you can help increase your faculty's enthusiasm while also helping your students be prepared to learn on the first day of classes.
