Students save time by purchasing accessible eTextbooks on their own
For Pearson eTextbook titles and titles offered through VitalSource and Redshelf, you no longer need to submit a request for an alternate format text file or confirm that students have a print book. Students can start using their accessible eTextbook as soon as they purchase it, without having to buy or rent a print book.
Purchasing accessible digital textbooks is affordable and quick. And it’s easy for students to do on their own.
Pearson’s newest eTextbook platform meets the majority of WCAG 2.1 Level AA Standards. We’re continually updating our eTextbook platform to improve accessibility, usability, and compatibility with assistive technologies.
Students can access Pearson eTextbook in two ways:
- Are your students using MyLab® or Mastering®? If so, they may already have access to an accessible digital textbook. To open the eTextbook, students should go to the MyLab or Mastering course menu in their browser and select the eTextbook option.
- Are your students using or looking to purchase Pearson+? They can log in to Pearson+ to access their eTextbooks from their computer or mobile device (iOS and Android), even when offline. For additional information for a specific title, email Pearson Disability Support.
