  • Please verify that your device has the minimum amount of space available. Additional information is located here: Space Requirements.
  • If your device does not meet the minimum requirements please contact Technical Support at Contact Us for further instructions.

There are videos within my eBook. What format are they in?

  • The videos within your interactive eBook are in MP4 format. You may need a plugin to play them in some web browsers.

The videos will not load in my Firefox web browser, what can I do?

By default Firefox does not support the playback of MP4 files and this will hinder the loading of your eBook's videos. Installing the QuickTime plugin will allow Firefox to play these videos. To install QuickTime (or to update to the latest version):
  • Download the QuickTime installer file to your computer.
  • When the download completes, close Firefox.
  • Find the file you downloaded and double-click it to start the QuickTime installation.
Once QuickTime is installed the Firefox plugin will be installed and enabled by default.

Once I have my account and eBook code, how can I add my book to my account?

  • When your account is created, your first eBook will automatically appear on your Bookshelf.

    To add additional books:

    • Login to EMC eBooks
    • Click Add or Extend a Book
    • Enter your Code and click the Submit Button
    If the book does not appear on your bookshelf please contact Technical Support at Contact Us for further instructions.

Will my activation code for the alternative eBook solutions work?

  • Alternative eBook solution codes are not compatible with the Multiplatform system.

Can I share my book with other users?

  • Our eBooks come at a heavily discounted price in order to be individually provided to all students.  With the ability to purchase these books at a fraction of the cost of traditional text books, we encourage users to make the small investment in the eBooks and enjoy the portability of the eBook without the burden of sharing or lugging a large textbook around.
