IU eTexts: Basic Skills for Instructors

Learn how to work with IU eTexts and the Unizin Engage e-reading platform for your class.

IU eTexts are not simply digital copies of traditional textbooks. They are multiple forms of digital learning materials, delivered directly to students before the first day of class, and integrated into Canvas course pages.

Stand-alone texts are presented on the Unizin Engage e-reading platform, a tool designed to improve learning and teaching by promoting student and instructor engagement in the text. Faculty may also upload their own materials to Engage. (The significantly discounted costs are charged to the Bursar account at the time of registration. Fees are covered by all forms of financial aid.)
