Bedford x-Books

What do you want in your x-book? Bedford’s newest online textbooks include video, audio, and activities—and that’s just the beginning. We’ve made it simple for teachers to add their own pages, documents, links, and assignments, and to drag and drop the contents to match the way they teach. We’ve made it seamless for students to do their classwork and talk to each other, right in the book. And we’ve made it easy to see who’s done what and what’s coming up, so everyone stays on the same page. Request a demo—at roughly half the cost of the print text, you can’t afford not to explore how an x- book could work for your class.
