Instructor Content

The latest ebook release, Beta 6, implements functionality that allows instructors to create, edit, and publish shareable content with students. Not only can instructors share notes attached to selected ebook text, but they can also share images, videos, and links. A notable component of the instructor content feature is that it includes guidance and checkpoints for instructors, which will ensure they are sharing content with students that is accessible. 

Instructor’s personal notes and highlights that exists in NERd Classic will automatically import into NERd Next upon first opt-in to the new reader.
