BeetleReader and ePub
There is one big challenge that faces the majority of content creators, especially in the education domain: How to produce content with flexible usage? Restricting content to a single device is simply not an option. Content should be available anytime and anywhere.
The education sector has long been in search of ways to encourage multi-device teaching and learning in order to facilitate both sides.
ePub is the superhero of user-friendly publishing that has come to save the day. It allows easy access, offers flexibility and does not limit readers to using a specific device. BeetleReader is an ePub viewer that incorporates all the benefits ePub offers.
BeetleReader for students
BeetleReader is where students can access all the learning materials from their university or college courses. Once the institution obtains license to BeetleReader, students can enjoy all the following benefits:
- Easy access to content
- ePubs compatible with all devices and browsers
- Native content ordering and navigation
- Offline access to content
- Intuitive design and additional semantics
- Effective search system
- Note taking and highlighting
BeetleReader is designed in such a way which would actually enhance student learning. Reading a case study from Caitlin Corning from George Fox University, the main downside of using an ePub reader was the text highlighting. BeetleReader makes note taking easy and simple, while highlighting happens as fast as the physical one on paper!
BeetleReader for university content creators
Digital learning resources have become very popular in recent years. Having an ePub university-branded viewer is convenient and effective.
Here are BeetleReader’s advantages that specifically apply to content creators and managers:
- A platform that seamlessly include text, media formats (video, audio, images) and audio narration
- Direct upload of ePubs & instant availability
- Offers content access to a large group of people
- Great quality performance (capacity to upload & manage even heavy books)
- Simple and beautiful user interface
- White label product that allows for custom branding
BeetleReader is ready to take your institution to new educational horizons!
