How to use it
Our digital teacher guides are easy to use. Click on a chapter and start learning.
What makes this interactive?
Our toolbar, located on the right side of the page, opens and closes with a click of a button. In the toolbar, teachers can select a chapter, take a quick tutorial, return to the beginning of the guide, and add digital sticky notes. To close the toolbar, click on the outer edge and the toolbar will slide to the right, creating a larger reading space.
Our digital sticky notes provide the highest level of interaction. Readers can create sticky notes and drag them onto the webpage. The sticky notes save every 1-2 seconds (depending on the strength of your Internet connection). You will see lines flash over the note as it saves. Readers can go back to their notes, add and delete ideas, and move them around as needed. We know teachers! And we know they like their sticky notes.
