Professors and university professionals can create dynamic lessons, reading exercises, quizzes, and many more options for your interactive course eBook or assignments. Tailored educational exercises and teaching apps are easy to make and are instantly graded so you and your students can track progress in real time.

What you can create with BookWidgets

Here are some of the activities University Professors have created with BookWidgets:

The Quiz widget lets you assess your students on any topic. Choose from a broad variety of question types (multiple choice, fill in the blanks, annotate pictures, ...), and enter your question. Your student's answers are automatically graded, saving you hours of time and effort.


I love to use BookWidgets! Because of the direct feedback that students get in Bookwidgets, my classroom becomes less teacher-centered and more student-centered! The teacher-interface helps me as a teacher to track the progression of each student and to interact with a student on his or her specific problems.

The Flash Cards widget allows your students to practice and study your teaching material. Use words, sentences, images, and sound to create your own flash cards.


BookWidgets has been great for our digital textbooks: it allows us to create content that students enjoy, and it gives teachers the data to monitor student progress. Teachers can easily create a wide variety of interactions that address their students' specific needs, and the self-checking options give teachers the flexibility to assign an exercise or activity in class or for homework.

The WebQuest widget lets you bundle together web resources, text, video, and widgets into a coherent lesson package.

How BookWidgets Works

Creating an interactive exercise with BookWidgets just takes a few easy steps:

1. Create

Create an activity ("widget")

Choose a type of activity ("widget") from a large collection of different activity types, and fill it with your own teaching content through an easy-to-use wizard.

2. Share

Share your widget with your students

The widgets you create will work seamlessly in multi-touch books created using iBooks Author projects, but can also be shared with student iPads via our free app or with student Chromebooks, tablets and PCs via the web.

3. Collect

Collect student work in your BookWidgets account

When your students carried out exercises, they can send their work back to you via the BookWidgets website.

4. Grade

Evaluate, grade and provide feedback to your students

Many exercises are automatically graded, freeing up time for you to give quality feedback to your students with a click. Furthermore, we provide the analytics you need to quickly determine problem areas, or students that need extra attention.
