Norton Ebooks give students and instructors an enhanced reading experience at a fraction of the cost of a print textbook. Students are able to have an active reading experience and can take notes, bookmark, search, highlight, and even read offline. As an instructor, you can even add your own notes for students to see as they read the text. Norton Ebooks can be viewed on—and synced among—all computers and mobile devices.


InQuizitive is Norton’s award-winning, easy-to-use adaptive learning tool that personalizes the learning experience for students and helps them master—and retain—key learning objectives. Through a variety of question types, answer-specific feedback, and gamelike elements such as the ability to wager points, students are motivated to keep working until they’ve mastered the concepts. Students then come to class better prepared, giving you more time for meaningful discussions and activities. InQuizitive can also improve students' test grades when assigned consistently for points, as a part of the overall course grade. The convenience of LMS integration saves you time by allowing InQuizitive scores to report right to your LMS gradebook.


Easily add high quality Norton digital media to your online, hybrid, or lecture course—all at no cost. Norton Coursepacks work within your existing learning management system; there’s no new system to learn, and access is free and easy. The Cultural Anthropology coursepack is customizable and offers a variety of tools for review and assessment:

  • Pre-tests for each chapter gauge your students’ preliminary understanding of the chapter’s main concepts.
  • Review quizzes for each chapter test students’ understanding of the material and report their scores directly in your Learning Management System’s gradebook. The quizzes offer a variety of question types including matching, ranking, and multiple-choice questions.
  • 26 streaming film clips from the Cultural Anthropology: A Documentary Film Collection. Each clip is accompanied by a short-answer exercise or activity.
  • “Thinking like an anthropologist” and “Your Turn: Fieldwork” exercises and interactive activities get students to “do” anthropology and report the results of their research.
  • Chapter learning objectives ask students to consider the big questions in each chapter.
  • Flashcards help students review key terms in each chapter and key term matching quizzes report to the LMS gradebook.
