Students can purchase their own copy of a published eTextbook and online reading via Perusall.
To provide students with this option, academics can link directly to eTextbook versions of prescribed or recommended readings via the LMS. Students will be able to purchase or rent (when available) titles they wish.
eTexts are instantly accessible and offer interactive features such as text searching, annotation, note taking and highlighting options. They also provide academics with access to reading and usage statistics.
Perusall extends the normal eTextbook platform by providing a platform for students to collectively read and comment in groups on readings uploaded by the teaching staff or textbook chapters. If you would like assistance with exploring this feature of Perusall please contact Learning Environments.
Note: Purchasing eTextbooks through Perusall does not guarantee that students will pay the lowest price. Promotional or discounted pricing may be available through alternative sources such as direct purchase through publisher websites. However, such purchases may not provide students with the same functionalities or ease of purchase through the LMS.
