zyBooks use animations to dynamically illustrate complex concepts.

Each zyBook chapter contains animations, questions and interactive elements that help students internalize challenging concepts.

zyBooks uses thousands of questions integrated into the content to help concepts sink in.

zyBooks can include configurable embedded coding environments that allow students to work with real code, on the fly.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

The struggle is real.

For so many educators, all the extra stuff has become a drain. Class sizes are increasing while resources are shrinking. Constant grading and the never ending press of course management can take the joy out of teaching.

zyBooks can help.

Save hours grading each week with auto-graded assignments.

Challenge students with auto-generated exercises that are created and randomized dynamically.

Ensure students are actually participating with built-in analytics that allow you to assign points for reading and other tasks.

The solution is here.
