Most online textbooks are too complex. Reading, listening, video, activities, assessments, and other learning components are scattered across different browser tabs and web sites. Navigating and accessing the content often gets in the way of teaching and learning. And with poor service and support, an instructor wastes valuable time wrestling with technology, figuring things out on their own, and helping students to stay on track. Our titles feature a complete and rigorous textbook online and a comprehensive set of discipline specific learning tools, assignments, and assessments. All courseware elements are integrated, easy-to-use and expertly supported.

Digital courseware & textbook solutions are only valuable when they fit in with, and complement existing teaching and learning workflows. Technology should be effortless.

Our DNA is technology and learning, but, like any publisher, we rely on subject matter experts such as authors, advisors, and editors. Our formula for great content:

  • Authors are experienced college instructors
  • Authors are subject matter experts in their field
  • Webtexts are born digital and built for the web
  • Rich, subject-specific teaching and learning tools
  • Comprehensive, integrated quizzes, exams, and assignments blur the line between a textbook and an online course
  • Fully customizable and we do all the work for you


Great design is essential. To benefit from all the web has to offer, our webtexts are meticulously crafted for:

  • Easy and intuitive navigation (nobody gets lost)
  • Seamless integration of text and non-text elements
  • Linear design with our unique pre-built calendar
  • Right amount of text. Read less, do more.
  • Born digital – which means built for the web and not converted from print
  • Modular design for easy mixing and matching form across our catalog
