Technology Spotlight-New app and website for e-books

Using technology in education is becoming more and more common among students and instructors. E-books or books in alternative format are a common accommodation for students at CPCC. Here are some new resources that may be helpful when locating an electronic version of a book:

Yuzu

http://www.bncollege.com/digital/yuzu/

This app allows for textbook retrieval from multiple devices. It is used by the CPCC bookstore and can be used with financial aid.

Coursesmart

http://www.coursesmart.com/howitworks

This website is an option for students who do not use financial aid. It keeps a library of rental books that the student can access until the book rental expires. Some books have “unlimited” rentals.

If you are approved to receive books in alternative format/e-books and are having difficulty locating an electronic version of your book, please contact Alysia Leak in AssistiveTechnology and your Disability Counselor for more assistance.
