E-books empower students

E-books are redefining traditional textbook approach to Higher Education. They allow us to supply material that:

  • use universal design principles to ensure all students irrespective of the learning and sensory needs have access to the content
  • automatically re purposes to fit the scale and format of any users  device, whether a smart phone, computer, tablet. or laptop.
  • delivers a rich learning experience, embedding audio and video within text to increase interactivity.
  • enables student and teachers to personalise their learning experience by changing the fonts and fonts sizes to suit their needs
  • creates freedom for students who now only need to carry one device instead of bundles of books.
