Class Sets and title assignments both let you "assign" a title to a specific set of users for a specific length of time. However, they differ in a few important ways.
- A Class Set is a lending model, meaning that it's a way to purchase titles.
- When you purchase a Class Set, you "rent" an individual title for a specific set of students and for a specific amount of time. This pricing is less expensive than if you were to purchase the title under a traditional lending model.
- Class Set titles are automatically pushed into student accounts on the Class Set start date, then expire completely (i.e., do not go into your school's collection) once the Class Set period ends.
- A title assignment is a Marketplace feature that you can use for titles your school has already purchased.
- You can assign any One Copy/One User, Metered Access, or Simultaneous Use title that's already in your collection to a specific set of students for a specific amount of time.
- When creating a title assignment, you may need to purchase additional copies of the owned title if you don't already have enough for all of your students.
- Assigned titles are automatically pushed into student accounts on the assignment start date, then return to your school's collection once the assignment ends.
