Linking to Engage resources within ebooks and e-textbooks

This article tells you how to link a teacher-created Engage resource within an ebook. With everything in one place, learning is even easier!

This article is for STUDENTS. 👦👧👨‍🎓👩‍🎓

If your teacher has shared a multimedia resource with you via Snapplify Engage, you’ll be able to find these in your Snapplify Reader app. Since we know how important it is to be able to access resources quickly and easily while you're reading and revising, we've also given you the digital tools to link to a teacher-created Engage resource from PDFs and ePUBs in the Snapplify Reader app.

For example, a science video that your teacher has shared with you via Engage can be added as a link in your Natural Sciences e-textbook, making studying even simpler as you can navigate easily between the resource (video) and the prescribed material (e-textbook) within the Snapplify Reader app.
