Portrait Edubase


Learning and working with e-books

Edubase is an independent e-book platform for educational institutions – a modern library for digital training materials. Publishers and self-publishers can manage their content and publish it in a digital format via Edubase.

It would be impossible to imagine today’s educational landscape without digital training materials. Many publishers operate their own e-book solutions and a lot of colleges would like for there to be one single platform. That is precisely where the subsidiary of Careum comes in – Edubase is a modern e-book platform that publishes content from a variety of publishers in one single location.

The e-books are stored online and can be accessed by users through their own personal account, allowing teachers and trainees alike to log in from a device of their choosing. Not only is the Edubase Reader great for reading, it is also ideal for learning, as it gives you the option to mark passages of text as you would in a hard copy book. You can also make notes, draw sketches, attach multimedia content and share it with others.

At the interface between college and publisher

Edubase was established on the initiative of a synergy of colleges. As the leading e-book platform for educational institutions, it has evolved into an important partner for publishers of teaching materials. Publishers and self-publishers alike can use Edubase to conveniently tap into new distribution channels. In order to convert a text into an e-book, all you usually need is a print-optimised PDF. It is also possible for colleges and teachers to publish their own documents or lecture notes as e-books at low cost and distribute them themselves.

Yet, in spite of all the digitalisation it employs, people are always the top priority for Edubase – direct customer contact, a broad range of training courses and personal advice are naturally part of this. With a focus on user-friendliness, Edubase is continuously being advanced and enhanced in line with customer requirements
