Publisher Offers Electronic Versions of Textbooks

Course Technology, Thomson Learning's computer education publishing division, is offering more than 50 of their best-selling textbook titles within e-book platforms this year. Through partnerships with e-book platform resources, the publisher will offer e-books for popular software applications and information technology concepts, including the Internet, Web development, networking, programming and management information topics.

The e-books will be offered through a secure system for accessing, annotating and sharing copyrighted content online. The e-books look exactly like the printed versions, but also include interactive quizzes, movies and other multimedia enhancements on a single platform. Professors and students can customize their content by annotating text, highlighting key passages, inserting notes and bookmarking pages. Course Technology, Boston, MA, (617) 757-7900, www.course.com.
