Boost eBooks are digital books that can be purchased from the Hodder Education website.
This article will show you how to find and favourite your Boost eBooks. It will also explain the difference between teacher copies and student copies. For additional guidance, see the articles below:
Finding Your eBooks
You can find your eBooks by selecting Browse eBooks on the teacher dashboard or the eBooks icon on the sidebar.
The eBooks dashboard is divided into two halves: favourited eBooks appear at the top, while all available eBooks are displayed at the bottom.
Use the dropdown boxes at the top of the list to filter it by subject, level, and exam board, or click View all eBooks to remove the filters.
Use the toggle on the right to switch between list and grid view.
Click on an eBook cover to open it.
Alternatively, you can find an eBook by opening the associated Boost Course.
To do so, select Open a Course on the Boost dashboard or the Courses icon on the sidebar. Select the relevant course and then click the eBooks tab at the top of the page.
You can favourite any eBook by selecting the star icon on the eBook tile. There is no limit to how many eBooks you can favourite.
Favourited eBooks will appear under the Favourites section of the eBooks dashboard.
Teacher Copies and Student Copies Explained
There are two types of Boost eBook: teacher copies and student copies. There is no difference in content between the two. The only difference is who can access them and how they are allocated.
Teacher copies are automatically included with most Boost Course core subscriptions (but cannot be purchased separately). They can be used by any teacher with access to your account for as long as your course subscription is active. You can display them in class, but they cannot be allocated to students on an individual basis.
Any Boost eBook purchased separately from or in addition to a Boost Course Core subscription is counted as a student copy. Teachers can allocate these copies to students so that they can access the eBook through their own Boost login. If there is no teacher copy available, then teachers can allocate themselves a copy as well. Each allocation reduces the total number of available copies by one.
If you have purchased a Boost Course Premium subscription, then you will not see a distinction between teacher copies and student copies. Instead, you will have an unlimited number of copies to allocate to students and teachers alike for as long as the subscription is active.
