We are now part of the curriculum used by public schools in China.

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.
