Books should fit your syllabus, not the other way around
Tailor and supplement educational content to create relevant and affordable teaching materials.
How it works
It takes minutes to create custom teaching materials from high-quality textbooks.
Pick one or more books you want to use in your class. Use them as a whole or only the chapters you want to teach. Instructors can request review copies of the books they plan to use.
Enhance the content with video, audio, images, and other info, add your own chapters, or just use the content as is. Skip unnecessary chapters, or change the order to match your syllabus.
Assign the customized materials you created directly to your students, link it inside your LMS, or publish your custom material in the Catalog and get paid for your work.
