eCampus.com proudly partners with VitalSource to provide the widest selection of eTextbooks in the industry. eTextbooks are delivered through the VitalSource platform and can be accessed online or downloaded for offline viewing on a variety of devices using the VitalSource Bookshelf app . Study at your desk, in the car, on a plane or out on the trail. Online textbooks provide mobile offline access, intuitive navigation, searchable content, printing, highlighting and note-taking features that are accessible wherever you are.
Also called digital textbooks or just e-books, online textbooks are simply the digital equivalent of physical texts for a traditional face-to-face class or online course.
An etextbook will look just like an other ebook with a few key differences. When using the Bookshelf App from Vitalsource, there will be additional features that make it easier to take notes & highlight sections of the book. There are also easy-to-use navigation features that help you find what you're looking for much quicker than thumbing through a physical book.
You can view your VitalSource etextbooks on your Kindle just like any other device, by first downloading the Bookshelf app from Amazon.
