Interactive Textbook

The online version of the student text delivers a host of interactive features to enhance the teaching and learning experience, and when connected to a class teacher account offers a powerful  Learning Management System.

Interactive Features:

  • Videos introduce the course, and each Year 12 topic, and extend student knowledge. Instant access is also available from the print book, via a QR code in the margin.
  • Auto-marked quizzes at the end of each chapter section allow students to quickly check their recall of the content. Answers feed into the Learning Management System for reporting.
    Workspaces for Review questions allow students to enter their answers directly into the Interactive Textbook. Students can then self-assess using a four-point scale, and use a red flag to alert  their teacher if they had trouble with a question. The answers, self-assessment and red flags feed into the Learning Management System for reporting.
  • Scorcher, our timed, online competition, allows students to check their recall of key concepts and other content, while competing against each other and other schools.
  • Roll-over glossary definitions.
  • Bookmark folders can be created by students with direct links to content they have marked.
  • Downloadable Word versions of all Activities, Media studies, Case studies, Review tasks and End-of-chapter materials.
