In this digital age there is no need to carry those huge, bulky course textbooks. Kno Textbooks is an app that provides access to over 200,000 textbooks (which must be purchased).
Once the textbook is bought the iPad is used to access it much like the paper versions, with some advantages. The books can be searched, a powerful feature, and many have multimedia content to aid the learning process.
Students can import PDF documents for use right in the app.
From the publisher:
