What are digital materials?

Digital course materials can be read on your Windows PC, Mac, or mobile device. They are convenient because they are portable, easy to bring to class, and immediately available after your purchase. They are also priced lower than print materials. Due to digital distribution restrictions and copyright protections, Cognella digital materials expire 180 days after purchase.

When you purchase course materials in our online store, you’ll have the opportunity to choose between print or digital format. If you order your course materials in digital format, you’ll receive immediate access to a full digital download. If you order your course materials in print format, you’ll receive immediate access to a partial digital download. The partial digital download typically includes 30% of the title, allowing you to begin reading while your print materials are shipped to you. Add-ons allows you to easily bundle digital materials with a print copy or vice versa – getting the benefits of both print and digital at the best value.

IMPORTANT: A minority of Cognella titles do not offer the digital format option due to restrictions on digital distribution from third-party vendors. When you select your course materials from the store, you’ll see the format options available for your specific course materials.
