Introduction to purchasing ebooks

Ordering and buying physical textbooks can be difficult. Dealing with multiple providers is a cumbersome process. Some titles go out of stock, and deliveries take time. A teacher, who ordered 30 prescribed books last year and then finds she has a class of 35 students, has to put through a separate order for the five additional copies. These may only arrive later in the school term, or may not arrive at all, putting those five students at a disadvantage.

Snapplify has the largest catalogue of local and international e-textbooks in Africa, and content in all 11 South African national languages, as well as Kiswahili. With Snapplify for Education, teachers can prescribe e-textbooks, and the school, students or parents can purchase these directly through the Engage platform. Students always have the most up-to-date editions and can access downloaded books online or offline, wherever they go.
