Collaborating with campus stakeholders is vital to creating a campus culture that recognizes the value of open and affordable resources. Several campus stakeholders are key partners in establishing open and affordable course marking initiatives specifically. A number of stakeholders may be hesitant to implement open and affordable resource markings in the schedule of classes as a result of miscommunication or a lack of information. Thus, both identifying key campus stakeholders and having well-formulated, holistic talking points about the benefits of open and affordable course markings is important.

This section introduces a variety of stakeholders, starting with Chapter 4 (Students), which is dedicated to the main beneficiaries of most course marking efforts. Chapter 5 (Other Stakeholders) presents key considerations for introducing open and affordable course markings to each non-student stakeholder group. Chapter 6 (Talking Points) outlines benefits and common misconceptions, which advocates of course marking will need to address in order to implement them on their campus.
