McGraw Hill Launches Digital Publishing Tool For Teachers

McGraw-Hill Education has released a new custom publishing platform that lets instructors create their own eBooks.

The platform is called Create and it lets teachers create a digital workbook for a course using materials from various texts. The system has access to the McGraw Hill library, which includes 4,000 McGraw-Hill textbooks, 5,500 articles, 11,000 literature, philosophy and humanities texts and 25,000 business case studies.

The press release has more: “Through a recently announced partnership with Blackboard Inc., teachers will have access to the full suite of McGraw-Hill Create content through their Blackboard account, seamlessly integrating Create with their established and familiar classroom tools. Professors can also easily upload and incorporate self-produced content into their Create project.”

Once a teacher creates a text, they receive a digital review copy in less than an hour. Once approved, students can buy Create eBooks through the McGraw-Hill eBookstore or they can buy print editions in their campus bookstore.
