zyBooks Platform Features

  • Adopt computer science and other STEM zyBooks as a replacement or supplement for your existing textbook. zyBooks focuses on highly interactive elements inside of the book, to replace walls of text that students don’t read.

  • Write, compile, and execute code directly inside of a zyBook.

  • Track students as they work through the course and get a real-time view of activity completion.

  • Use zyLabs for computer science as a homework assessment engine to auto-grade assignments.
