Digital content is a digital version of a printed textbook that you can download or access online. Digital content contains the same content as the print version and is organized in the same way. It typically includes the same images, graphs and charts.
Our digital content platform is YuzuTM. Yuzu lets you organize, read, and annotate your reading right in the palm of your hand - making the experience of learning simple and gratifying.
