The e-Bookshelf provides an electronic version of the coursebooks. There are seven coursebooks to cover the three-year curriculum. Including both English and Chinese versions, that makes fourteen coursebooks in total. Teachers can switch freely between English and Chinese versions on every page.
The e-Bookshelf also provides the electronic format of the related assignment books. All the exercises are carefully graded and written to fully cover the concepts taught in the coursebooks. Teachers can choose to show or hide the answers, so that they can discuss questions and check answers with students in class.
The related apps have been incorporated into the e-Bookshelf and hence teachers do not need to download them one by one from the App Store. As with the supporting kits, teachers can get new or updated apps quickly and straightforwardly by updating the e-Bookshelf.

The following tools and resources are provided in coursebooks and assignment books to facilitate the preparation and delivery of classes:
The e-Bookshelf can be used without network support. A network connection is only required when logging in, then teachers can use the app in its offline mode. Only YouTube videos, reference links and other online-dependent resources are limited by network accessibility.
The login status remains valid until teachers log out of e-Bookshelf or the app has been left idle for one month. Therefore, teachers can log in at home, in their staff room, or at any location with wireless network coverage, and then use the app even when classrooms or laboratories do not have Wi-Fi coverage. They can also take the e-Bookshelf to support activities at out-of-school learning events where no network is provided.
Teachers can log in to all other apps and online resources included in the same series using just one account. They can also use their accounts to log in to Teacher’s Land on the Aristo’s website to get all the latest updates and support available to them.
In addition to the e-Bookshelf, some other apps are available on the App Store to support teachers. More are coming!
