IU’s eTexts initiative

Textbooks can be a luxury for some students. Those who can’t buy new books do the best they can with old or out-of-print editions, while others opt for nothing at all. But why? Simply put, textbooks cost too much.

IU’s eTexts initiative is a direct response to this issue. The university’s direct and indirect partnerships with more than 30 publishers have helped IU eTexts become a cost-effective alternative that aids student success and provides faculty with a powerful instructional tool. Benefits include:

  • Better pricing
  • Expanded catalogs
  • Personalized adaptive learning experiences through Digital Learning Tools
  • More options for engaged teaching and learning across a variety of environments

What are Digital Learning Tools?
Digital Learning Tools (DLTs) are designed to accompany eTexts available through IU’s publishing partners. They allow instructors to offer interactive instructional materials and adaptive learning experiences for students. Many also integrate with Canvas.

Visit the IU eTexts Adoption Portal to order partner-provided eTexts at a discounted rate. This cost savings will also extend to students using DLTs in your courses.
