Buying these titles
All titles (when available) may be purchased for use online and offline, either individually or as Class Sets (at a reduced price).  Options include making the book available campus-wide (using the school's IP Range) allowing access on all devices when on campus, Class Sets controlled by a class-wide login (no need to register each individual student), to individual purchases, which allows the user to possess a book, rather than just online access for a certain period.  There is also a complete LMS solution integrating the books such that scores are returned to teachers, administrators or even school boards.

Hiragana Times
Hiragana Times Academic

Now offering an Academic Subscription for classes of students studying Japanese, all over the world.

The venerable Hiragana Times magazine, first published in 1986, is a truly unique magazine in which you can study language while learning about Japan. Each Japanese paragraph is followed by its English translation or vice versa, and furigana are placed below each kanji to make Japanese study even easier. Hiragana Times introduces the real Japan to non-Japanese by looking at Japan as an attractive, unique town in the global village. Inside Hiragana Times, the world of Japan becomes reality, and one can experience the cultural frontier between Japan and the rest of the world.

Readers
Readers for the Classroom

We have been working on a few series of books, making them available for classrooms of all sizes and types. These can be used with both first and second langauge learners.

Classroom Sets, made available to classes and schools in the way that you want it. Customize your series, access offline, with an LMS and so on. Tell us what you need.

Sets can be available via the school's IP, as a single logon for the entire class (NO individual purchase, or individual login/passwords for the teacher to have to manage), or all loaded on a device (ie. Raspberry Pi), which allows classroom use without an internet connection, yet on the students' personal devices.

Providing authors and publishers with a digital strategy

What is your digital strategy?
Making Apps? ePub? Putting everything up online, only? Selling PDFs?
All of these will fill some needs, but will also leave gaps.  But does your ROI (return on investment) justify what you have invested in digital?

Making it available to everyone.
Platform fragmentation is a real issue, and will be so for the foreseeable future. Our belief is that the books and materials created by our partners should be available to every person in the world, regardless of device or access to reliable internet, and at a price that makes sense, no matter where you are.
