Course Materials

We may supply several different types of course materials to registered participants:

  • Welcome Letter - supplied prior to the first class session via e-mail and/or post. (Depends on the preference of the registrant.)
  • Reading Packets - Reading packets are usually materials prepared or compiled by the Study Leader prior to the first class. (If the Study Leader is relying on current news items, materials may be distributed on a weekly basis.) Reading packets are sometimes only supplied in printed form, but may be available online in the course folder. Check your welcome packet for more information, or contact our office.
  • Hand-outs and photocopies - Study Leaders and some class participants may choose to share materials with members of the class via photocopies and hand-outs, which are usually passed out during a class session. If the study leader or participant has supplied a copy to the office, we will do our best to make these materials available in print as well as online in the course folder. (Please see below for more information on hand-outs and photocopies.)

The Welcome Letter is the one piece of printed material for which a member should never be charged. However, receiving other types of course materials in printed form may result in a fee. If the total amount of printed materials for one course (either distributed by the Study Leader or requested by a participant) exceeds 50 pages, a fee will apply. Fees are calculated on an individual basis, meaning that each class participant receiving their own printed copy of materials will be charged for the materials they receive. This is why it is important that each member notify the office of their materials preference when they register for the term.

Please remember the following regarding course materials:

  • Requests for printed copies of materials must be made at least 24 hours in advance of pick-up.
  • Printed materials will be available for pick-up in our office at 7 Lebanon Street, Suite 107, Hanover. If you cannot pick up materials at the office, we can mail materials to you, but a postal fee may apply. We also cannot guarantee timely receipt of mailed materials.
  • Printed Materials Fees: As mentioned above, if printed materials exceed 50 pages, a fee will apply. The office staff will present totals for course materials fees as soon as they are finalized. Some fees may be presented at the start of the term, while others may not be available until the final session of the class. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

Welcome Letters and Emails

At least two weeks prior to your first class, the OSHER@Dartmouth office will send welcome letters to every class participant. These letters will be emailed to every class participant who has supplied an email address; if you have request printed materials, you will also receive a printed copy of this letter via USPS.

Each welcome letter/email includes a link to the online course folder, located on Google Drive. As most courses share information with class participants via the Google Drive folder, we recommend that you save this link via one of two methods:

1. Save the original email. When you need to visit the course folder, open the email and click the link.
2. After clicking the link and arriving at the course folder, bookmark the page. To learn how to bookmark a page in your browser, one of the following online guides may help:
