Tablets FAQ
! What are the differences between Mac/Windows, Android Tablet, and Android
versions of an eText? The same eText title can generally be accessed across all three
platforms. User personalizations (Notes, highlights, etc.) are generally available no matter
what device the student or instructor uses. Pearson eTexts on all three platforms offer
similar features but have user interfaces designed specifically for each device. Some minor
device-specific differences include:
! Chapter Download: The option to download chapters for offline use is available for Android and
Android Tablet only. It is not available on the Mac/Windows client
! Study Groups: The ability to share notes with members of a study group using Bluetooth or Wi-Fi
technology is available only on the Android Tablet client and is not available on the Android or
Mac/Windows clients
! Flash Assets: The ability to view rich media content built with Adobe Flash is only available on
Mac/Windows. Adobe Flash media is automatically disabled when viewed on the Android or
Android Tablet client
! Whiteboard Mode: Support for Whiteboard mode is available only on the Mac/Windows client ! Do the Android Tablet eText titles interoperate with the Mac and Windows titles?
The eText titles that are accessed on the Android Tablet will be the same titles that a user
accesses from the eText server today on their Mac or Windows browser-based
client. Your notes, highlights, bookmarks and search history are all stored in our eText
online database such that no matter which version you use, they will be both available
and synchronized.
