Creating Links to eBooks

Updated on

This article describes how to obtain a link which not only goes to a particular lesson, but also to a particular problem or math note within the lesson.  Teachers may want to place these links on a Google Doc or other file to "guide" students through a learning progression. NOTE: Students will need to be logged into their eBooks before clicking on any of these links!!

1. Copy the URL from any lesson in your eBook.

  • Go to the lesson in the eBook.
  • Highlight the URL in the browser bar.

  • For a Math Note: Add at the end of the URL, #notes, so that the link goes to the Math Notes of the lesson.

Now copy the entire URL.
