Net Texts: The App for Replacing or Supplementing Textbooks

Net Texts helps schools replace or supplement textbooks with customized multimedia courses delivered to students' iPads, Android tablets, and laptops!

Here’s How It Works:

  • Teachers use our Content Management Website to select existing courses or to create new courses by mixing and matching items from our library with their own educational material.
  • Students use our iPad or Android, or web app to download and view these courses, filled with videos, slideshows, e-books, PDFs, text, audiobooks, and Web links. Whether reading the latest e-book that has been assigned or watching a video for the next homework assignment, students will feel more engaged and in charge of their learning.

See It in Action:

Net Texts Consulting Services:

  • Our consulting services help your school get the most out of Net Texts! We will train your teachers on how to use our content management site and mobile apps, how to find Open Educational Resources, and how to create high quality content.
  • Net Texts researchers will build customized OER courses based on teachers' recommendations, syllabi, and state standards. We make it easy for a school or district to replace textbooks with a multimedia curriculum based on OER. Schools will save money on textbooks for years to come, as they can update their Net Texts courses with new material at any time.
