McGraw-Hill is adding an e-book solution to its portfolio of print and digital course material options. Available this fall, McGraw-Hill eBooks can be read on a computer or mobile device (using the company's ReadAnywhere mobile app for smartphones and tablets), with or without an internet connection. Features include annotation tools, text search and the ability to read text aloud.

"Our expanded offering provides even more flexibility to all students," noted Scott Virkler, chief product and operating officer for higher education at McGraw-Hill, in a statement. "We shouldn't assume that all students have unlimited access to mobile data and internet connectivity. Therefore, it's vitally important that we provide affordable and flexible options that meet each student's individual needs and circumstances. With the McGraw-Hill eBook, we are providing students with even more options that allow learning to happen within their busy lives, anywhere, anytime."

"The McGraw-Hill eBook is highly engaging and versatile for both instructors and students," commented Wayne Thomas, interim dean at the University of Oklahoma and co-author of the McGraw-Hill textbook Financial Accounting. "Students make vital connections and really learn the concepts, not just data points."
