eTextbooks are digital textbooks your students can use for either online or face-to-face courses. They are often downloaded to a computer or other reading device, and can either be the primary textbook or a supplement to a traditional print text. eTextbooks often have a variety of features which enhance the traditional physical textbooks, such as practice activities, videos, and being searchable. The text in most eTextbooks can be resized and accessible to screen readers, making eTextbooks a good option for enhancing the accessibility of your learning materials.
UW-Whitewater has partnered with RedShelf as our preferred eTextbook providor. eTextbooks can be directly integrated into Desire2Learn. At this time, textbooks located in campus textbook rental are not eligible for this service.
