Benefits of creating a Pearson eText course

  • Share highlights and notes with students. Add your personal teaching style to important topics, call out need-to-know information, or clarify difficult concepts directly in the eText.
  • Access reading analytics. Use the dashboard to gain insight into how students are working in their eText to plan more effective instruction in and out of class.
  • Customize and schedule readings. Rearrange the Pearson eText table of contents at both the chapter and section level to match the way you teach. Add due dates so that students know exactly what to read to come to class prepared.
  • Integrate with your LMS. Get up and running quickly on the first day of class. LMS integration provides institutions, instructors, and students with single sign-on access to Pearson eText via Blackboard Learn, Canvas, Brightspace® by D2L®, and Moodle. Note: If you integrate Pearson eText with your LMS, students must redeem or purchase access through the LMS.
  • Engage learners with compelling media. Videos and animations bring key concepts to life, helping students place what they are reading into context. (Available with select titles.)
