Textbooks Go Online
McGraw-Hill Education and WizeUp Digital Textbooks have formed a joint initiative to electronically publish, sell and distribute digital textbooks for the higher education market. Students will be able to view the education titles online with password-protected access, or download the book directly to a computer. The titles integrate seamlessly into course management technology systems such as Web CT and Blackboard, and allow the professor to link the textbook content to classroom presentation materials. Interactive technology allows students to search texts, take and manage notes, create hyperlinks and bookmarks, and electronically highlight text. WizeUP, New York, NY, www.wizeup.com.
