In 2007, CourseSmart began with the goal of providing a better textbook evaluation service for higher education. For instructors and publishers, textbook evaluations used to be a tedious, difficult, and time-consuming task, but not anymore. CourseSmart built the world's largest library of eTextbooks and digital course materials that can be accessed instantly. College instructors can get textbook evaluations anywhere, anytime, with ease. CourseSmart is dedicated to making learning more convenient. To help lessen the financial burden on students, CourseSmart provides digital course materials directly to the student body for rent. These eTextbooks can be accessed online or offline through multiple devices such as laptops, tablets, or smartphones. CourseSmart is proud to support education through digital learning that is cost-efficient and eco-friendly. Learning doesn't have to be out reach when you have CourseSmart always available to supply your needs.
Here are some commonly asked questions about CourseSmart:
You'll need to be vigilant to use a redemption code on CourseSmart. Your Shopping Cart and Checkout will not provide any means or clue to use your code. Instead, you'll have to click on the word "Redeem" located in the upper right-hand corner of the webpage, next to your Bookshelf. This link will take you to a page specifically for redeeming an eTextbook redemption code so you can gain access to your book. Type the code in the text box and click "Redeem" to update your Bookshelf.
For eTextbook purchases, you can cancel your CourseSmart eTextbook digital rental within 7 days for an immediate refund. CourseSmart does require that you only viewed and/or printed less than 20% of the eTextbook while it was in your possession. You may only request a refund once per product, so if you rent an eTextbook, return it, and then rent it again, you cannot receive another refund on that product. For an eResource purchase, you can get a refund as long as you have not viewed the access code for any online resource included with your purchase.
Yes, if you travel outside the U.S. after making a purchase on CourseSmart, you will still have access to your eTextbook. Just because you're in a different country doesn't mean you don't have to study, right? Some internet service providers in certain countries will monitor and censor web traffic and might block the https secure protocol that CourseSmart utilizes. In this case, you might lose access to your eBook in certain areas. However, most countries should support CourseSmart use.
CourseSmart believes that eTextbooks provide students many benefits over printed materials. For starters, they tend to be less expensive overall. In addition to this, eTextbooks have the exact same content as a printed textbook but are more environmentally friendly, not wasting paper or requiring gas-guzzling delivery. Instead of lugging about thick textbooks, students can easily carry multiple eTextbooks on a single, lightweight device. You can also search for specific words in the eTextbook, copy and paste sections into a document of your own, and highlight pages without worrying about running out of ink. Because they are cheap, portable, and user-friendly, eTextbooks revolutionize studying materials.
