Add Instruction

Our tools are designed to be flexible so they’ll fit into the way you teach—and perhaps inspire some new ideas! The easiest way to get started is by adding a comment or question to the page of any digital book or document. You can also layer in enrichment materials, assignments and quizzes to scaffold the text, and foster analysis and writing skills.

Use our built-in tools to apply your favorite teaching techniques:
