In 2014, Vital Source Technologies, Inc. acquired CourseSmart. Vital Source Technologies is an Ingram Content Group company and the global leader in building, enhancing and delivering e-learning content. With this partnership, more innovation is on the way as we continue to bring you products, features and services to help you get the most out of your course materials.
At this time, VitalSource eTextbooks cannot be used with CourseSmart eTextbooks and vice versa. While the long term goal is to work to incorporate the best of both platforms into a single and unified reader and app experience, for now, the two will continue to operate separately with no cross over. Therefore, until the platforms are integrated, you will not be able to use the VitalSource App with a CourseSmart eTextbook. As we start to make progress on integration, we will certainly keep our customers informed on what to expect.
