Shop e-Readers University and K12 School Partners
Shop e-Readers is proud to pioneer digital readers in the classroom. We have established relationships with many Universities in Canada that sell our devices in their student stores. We also participate in orientation days at many schools in British Columbia to introduce students and parents to tablets and electronic readers.
All schools that fall under our digital initiative are provided display stands that come with a free demo unit. This is a fully functional e-reader that gives people a chance to play with it before making the buying decision. In addition, all of our devices are shipped with a free DVD Video Tutorial that teaches you everything you need to know. Finally, all of our devices come with 100 free eBooks to get you reading right away. We also handle the technical support aspect, so if students have any problems they can visit our own Good e-Reader Tech Forum.
If you are a University in Canada or Australia your school can benefit from doing business with our company. You may elect to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask any questions. We normally ship all orders with a PO and offer flexible payment options for established learning environments.
