The written coursebook of a course unit can be offered digitally in the ‘BookShelf’ tool of VitalSource. This tool enables you to process subject matter, make digital notes and flashcards, mark content and complete tests to check your knowledge.

Practical information

The e-syllabus is developed in the VitalSource tool and opened in the Bookshelf tool. The instructor will inform you if an e-syllabus needs to be purchased for the course unit in question. Consequently, it is also possible that the instructor explains this in one of the first lessons and/or communicates this via the Toledo learning platform.
