Learning resources are tools such as books, e-books, online modules, videos, study guides, web-based tutorials, and simulations made available to WGU students in affiliation with its education providers to help students develop required competencies. Details about learning resources for each course and assessment you complete are available in the courses introductory area. If students have technical difficulties with a resource, they may contact the WGU IT Service Desk. If they need assistance navigating or understanding a resource, they may contact their course mentors. The majority of learning resources offered are included in WGU's resource fee with the primary exception of hardcopy textbooks, which students are responsible for purchasing on their own.
