hello all! i was just wondering if anyone knew if you can put your evolve books that you already own onto your ipad from the evolve website.. i was wondering if it was possible if you already had it to just upload it to your books somehow on your ipad or if you just have to repurchase it!

thanks!!

I think you have to download the Kno app or the other bookshelf thing they have and you should be able to download them.

Do you have to pay for the books you download?

Yes, you do have the buy the books, but you only purchase them one time under your account then you are able to access them on 2 computers and 2 mobile devices.

Are you logged in under the same account that you bought the books?

Also make sure you are using the Vital Source Bookshelf App. Any other app is a separate company and will require a separate purchase.

If your book came with a digital copy(access code) you can use or on your iPad. If not, you would have to repurchase the books.

Oooh, yeah, if you bought the paper book you don't get the online version for free. But the ebooks are cheaper and our evolve rep gets them 30% off, so you may want to ask about that!

Miiki, you can use Kno as a platform as well through evolve with the same books. II prefer it, but they suggest you stick with whatever platform your professors use.

Oh! Does it show highlighters from the desktop app?I actually like kno but I'll be using the desktop while in class but I'm not sure to what extent. I don't want to have to bring both the iPad and the laptop.

Ok another question: How do you get the books that you have already bought through Evolve into Kno?

Oh, I don't know! I haven't tried it on a computer. My school doesn't use ebooks but I started having shoulder problems hauling my stuff around so I'm experimenting with them next semester. I'll check it out and let you know.
