From the press release:
MBS Direct and global education leader Houghton Mifflin Harcourt have joined forces to create a unique, industry-leading relationship that will provide a sizeable catalog of select K-12 e-textbooks in core subject areas. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt titles will be added to MBS Direct’s growing e-textbook catalog, and will give MBS Direct customers strong support for digital content in their K-12 curricula.
Technology in the form of e-readers, tablets and smartphones continues to create new opportunities for both publishers and educators. As a cost-effective alternative to traditional textbooks, MBS Direct Digital textbooks are designed specifically to support learning, and most can be read on any device with an Internet connection.
According to Bill Dampier, Chief Operating Officer of MBS Direct, “When MBS Direct’s partner schools adopt digital textbooks, they get trusted titles that can be read on almost any device—laptop, tablet or smartphone—and excellent resources for educators to track student engagement.”
