ebooksFree ebooks for educators and students.

Teaching a course that does not use any textbooks is challenging for educators. You have to go out and search endlessly to find a quality source of information for your students to use in the course. Today’s classroom is growing less reliant on the traditional paper textbook and more schools are purchasing ebooks and other digital texts.

There are numerous ebook providers available, but recently I stumbled upon this new company called Boundless. Boundless describes itself as a company that is centered on the student’s need to¬†supplement¬†traditional texts and course materials. Boundless creates these ebooks under OER commons and are published under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.

Boundless offers:

  • An interactive Notebook where students can take and highlight notes.
  • Flashcards and quizzes on key concepts.
  • Unique study guide with condensed notes.
  • Search functions.

Boundless offers 18 college-level subjects at the time this post was written. As a educator, you simply select the subject area and then customize the content by chapter. Simply click on the subjects you want to include in your ebook.
