This article is about accessing the new e-book through Sapling Learning. If the steps described in this article do not match your experience with your Sapling Learning e-book, then you probably have an older version of the e-book. For help with getting student access to older e-books, see the help article How do I purchase access to the eTextbook?.


Click the entire e-book link

There are several links to the e-book throughout your course including within Flash-based activities, mobile assignments, and LearningCurve. Some of these links are to a snippet of your e-book (a specific section) and not the entire e-book. You can access snippets of your e-book without going through this process. Below are some examples of where you will find an entire e-book link.


On the course home page

The easiest way to access your e-book is from the course home page. Click on the e-book image or title under the heading eTextbook in the right sidebar to open the e-book.

In a mobile assignment

Click the Resources tab to show links to your e-book. Some mobile assignment questions will have a link to a specific section of your e-book as well as a link to the entire e-book.

In a Flash-based activity

Expand the eTextbook section of the Resources panel to see links to the e-book. Click the image of the book or its title to open the entire e-book. Note that this question also has a link to a snippet below the entire e-book link.
