CourseSmart eTextbooks on a Tablet

January 5th, 2010 by CourseSmart

Hundreds of thousands of students are already accessing their assigned textbooks as CourseSmart eTextbooks on their laptops, netbooks, desktops, computer labs, iPhones, iPod Touches and other mobile devices.

But what about eTextbooks on the new “tablet” devices?

When media and analysts speculate about the emerging tablet market, they inevitably come to the conclusion that these devices will be very popular with college students if and when there is eTextbook content available.

We agree completely! Better yet, with our library of 8,000+ textbooks across 15 different publishers, we are in a position to make sure that the right content is available to every student who wants to access their textbooks on a tablet.

In the video below, we set out to visualize the experience of a student using a CourseSmart eTextbook on a tablet. Most of the functionality demonstrated is currently available in our online eTextbook and/or our iPhone app and the video shows how it might be optimized for a larger format tablet device.

Let us know what you think.

    Outstanding!! This will certainly improve the reader experience. Tablets are however going to be expensive and power hungry. How about having them on e-reader devices?
