Our number one priority is making sure that the instructors and students we serve are successful and satisfied with every aspect of their experience with our products. While our extremely responsive support team is here to help you every step of the way, we created this FAQ to provide answers to some of the most common questions we receive from professors, academic technology staff, and college administrators. Instructor and Student help is available on the Support Portal.
Connect For Education’s Webtexts are like no other Web-based textbooks or courseware. Let us send you a login for full faculty access to review one or more webtexts so you can experience it for yourself.
An eBook is an electronic ‘version’ of a printed book, while our webtexts are developed for web delivery from concept to release. Unlike eBooks, our webtexts are designed and developed to be completely integrated and robust learning environments that include various types of interactivities, relevant multimedia resources, and subject matter specific learning and assessment tools. Furthermore, our webtexts focus on empowering instructors with tools to analyze students’ performances and track progress, encouraging them to individualize the material in multiple ways, and helping them with every aspect of customization. Discover why over 95% of our students and instructors rate our content and service as exceptional.
It is easy to review any of our webtext titles. Simply complete our brief reviewer request form, and you will receive your access information right away.
We have streamlined this process to make it simple for you.
- Fill out the course setup form
- Send the ISBN to your bookstore as you would with any other textbook, or send the URL of our online store to your students.
- We will build your course with our webtext and take care of everything for you and your students so you can focus on teaching.
Yes, our webtexts are fully customizable. Once your course site has been set up, please contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (703) 880-1180 x200 Monday – Friday from 9AM-6PM EST with any modifications you need made.
Prices vary by webtext titles. Please check the Connect For Education online store (https://www.store.connect4education.com) for pricing information. We are proud to be able to offer all that we do while remaining price competitive. In many titles, our webtext prices are less than the prices of traditional textbook packages.
No, student access does not expire. Unlike all other publishers, we offer our students and instructors continued access for as long as the webtext titles are offered.
You can find the ISBN for each course listed in the “Adopt & Setup” tab of the respective product page. Ordering information for your bookstore can also be found here.
Our outstanding and dedicated support team is here for you and your students every step of the way.

- At the end of the registration process, students will be directed to the webtext login page where they can access the material immediately.

Connect For Education offers LTI integration to provide a seamless, single sign-on course experience, linking your learning management system to the Connect For Education course site.
Note: There are different types of LTI integration (Simple and Deep Link). Each type provides you with unique benefits, but requires different levels of involvement from the instructor/school and subsequently has an impact on the way the course is supported. It is important that you understand the differences between the types of LTI integration in order to determine which type best suits your course needs and circumstances. Please contact Connect For Education for more information on what type is best for you.
In preparation of setting up an LTI-integrated course, we ask that instructors submit their course setup forms to us each semester they teach to ensure we have all necessary information required for a course build. The Course Setup Request form can be found here. If you need assistance with your login credentials, simply email us at email@example.com. Please be sure to indicate that you are requesting LTI Integration on the Course Setup Request Form.
Once we receive your course setup request(s), our Technical Support Team will create your course shell(s) and will work with you on any customizations you would like to make to your course. Additionally, we will provide detailed instructions on how to create the LTI links within your school’s learning management system (depending on your user permissions, you may need the assistance of your LMS Administration for this step).
Please note, if you are teaching multiple courses for the semester, each C4E course shell and corresponding LTI link must be setup individually. Course links will need to be updated from semester-to-semester and cannot be reused or copied over from the previous semester. It is very important to keep this in mind when copying your Blackboard course from one semester to the next.
We are able to provide schools with a bulk of access codes for distribution. We accept purchase orders or credit cards directly from the school. Please contact our Orders Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 880-1180 x111 for more information.
Yes! We love to visit campuses and meet professors and instructors (many of us were once college instructors ourselves). Just shoot us an email (email@example.com) or give us a call ((703) 880-1180 x130) to arrange that.
We want to save the environment, so we do not offer printed books. However, we do make downloading and printing possible, especially when our titles are used as materials in face-to-face classes. Some instructors request that we enable this feature to print assignments, homework, tests, worksheets, etc.
No. Once a code has been registered, it cannot be used again. (Registered students are allowed to retake a course using the same access code, but they cannot transfer the access code to another individual.)
Instructors love what we offer and often do not require additional resources to implement the material. However, if and when needed, we are happy to provide instructor orientation materials, schedule webinars, or hold face-to-face training sessions for an individual or a group of instructors and/or administrators.
We have a full list of colleges and universities where our titles are, and have been used.
Of course. Just email or give us a call (703) 880-1180 x130.
