A New Courseware Platform: Edify

We’ve listened to your requests carefully and are excited to introduce a new courseware platform — Edify, with all of the most frequently requested updates, features, and tools.

The new platform will not change the content of your textbook, its resources, or any courses you’ve created but simply make them more accessible and easy to implement.
