FlatWorld Provides Free-With-Purchase Homework Platform

College textbook publisher FlatWorld introduced FlatWorld Homework, an assignments platform that is available at no additional cost after the purchase of specific FlatWorld textbooks. (In fall 2018, the platform will be available for 16 of the publisher’s titles.) Instructors can manage the platform via their learning management system—it is compatible with Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, and Brightspace D2L—or use it as a standalone product. FlatWorld authors create the platform’s questions to match the textbook; their format can include graphs, fill-in-the-blank, and image labeling.

“Many college textbook publishers offer digital homework platforms, but what’s astounding is that just about all of them are charging students exorbitant prices for access, in addition to the incredibly high costs of the textbooks themselves,” says Alastair Adam, co-CEO of FlatWorld. “Our aim is to not only publish the most affordable high-quality college learning materials, but to offer a superb homework platform that complements our textbooks at no additional cost.”

For more information, read the press release.
