To ensure that you have a successful initial experience with Globalyceum, we offer something quite unprecedented in college educational curriculum: personalized support. A designated Globalyceum support representative will be available via onsite visits, Skype, phone, and email to help you set up and enhance your libraries, master syllabi, and sections.
Though our webpage of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) will usually provide sufficient information to answer students' questions, students can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional help. And should you wish, your Globalyceum support representative will even visit your classroom to provide an overview of the product and answer students' questions.
On the Globalyceum homepage click on "Register" to be directed to the registration page. Fill in all required fields on the registration page. Our support team will use the email address entered in the "Preferred Institution Email" field to verify that you are a college or university professor.
If you want to use your institution email address for your Globalyceum sign-in name, re-enter it in the "Preferred Email" field. If you'd like to use a different email address for your Globalyceum sign-in name, enter that address in the "Preferred Email" field. Note that the "Preferred Email" doesn't have to be affiliated with a higher-education institution. This is a helpful feature if you teach at multiple institutions: with a single sign-in name you'll be able to access all of your Globalyceum sections, no matter which institution they are affiliated with.
Click the "Submit" button. Once Globalyceum verifies your affiliation with a college or university, we'll send you an email notification to let you know that you can set up your password and review the content on the instructor portal.

As educators, we know all too well how challenging it can be to deal with ever-shrinking budgets for curriculum and faculty development, conference fees, travel, and other expenses some university and college administrators might deem to be "non-essential." We disagree-these expenses are actually investments that will ultimately benefit the students as well as the faculty.
Globalyceum can't change the budgeting process, but we want to help your department. That's why we developed our Give Back to Education Program. When you adopt Globalyceum we'll give your department 1% of sales revenue from subscriptions purchased by your students. Even better, if three or more professors in your department use our Collaborative Library Program to share curriculum, we'll give your department 2.5% of sales revenue from subscription purchases.
To learn more about our Give Back to Education Program, please contact Dr. Patricia Don, Globalyceum's CEO and founder, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Want to learn more about Globalyceum? Our CEO and founder, Dr. Patricia Don, would like to meet with you in person or via telephone or Skype.
