Locate the eTextbook
On your bookshelf, locate the eTextbook you would like to download, touch the gray "push pin" icon for that particular title, the checkout or download will begin.
You can continue to read your textbook while the download is progressing in the background. Once the checkout or download is complete, you will see a "blue push pin" icon on the bookshelf for that textbook to indicate that it is ready for offline use.
After the title has been downloaded you can either read it while connected to the internet, or even when disconnected using the offline mode. You will be presenting with these options on tapping the title on your bookshelf.
You can check-in the title again by pressing the same pin icon on the bookshelf. Checking in a title will allow you to check it out on another Android device. A title can be checked out to only once device per user at a given point of time.
IMPORTANT: Chapters can be downloaded only once. If the download does not complete, you should attempt to cache the chapter again as soon as possible to avoid being locked out of caching your chapter locally on your Android. If you delete the CourseSmart app and reinstall, you will have to contact CourseSmart Customer Support to reset your download so you can download again.
