Free eTextbooks and learning materials for FE colleges and sixth forms
Easy access for all students to a curated collection of open access and open educational resources
We have partnered with Jisc, the UK’s digital body for education and research, for a pilot scheme, to provide the Kortext Open Resources Collection – a curated compilation of 10,000 free eTextbooks and academic publications – available to all Jisc FE member institutions.
Our partnership with Jisc means that all 1.7 million FE students and their academics can gain easy access, through the Kortext platform, to thousands of open access and open educational resources that they can use to study, learn, research and teach.
The collection contains learning materials on a wide range of subjects including:
- Society and Social Sciences
- Humanities and the Arts
- Computing and Technology
- Economics and Finance
- Business and Management
- Engineering and Mathematics
- Vocational subjects like plumbing
Set up is easy – simply visit the Jisc website to log in using your institution log in details and register your institution for free. Kortext will then work with you to set up access to the Kortext platform and make the collection available to your students and staff.
