Steps for Institutions to buy eBooks
– for Tablets & Smartphones

Institutions can, as is the case with textbooks, buy eBooks on behalf of their students!

To do so, an ocial order can be placed for an “eBook Bundle” in the same manner as for printed books. Future Managers will, upon receiving payment, provide institutions with download options to enable any of the following two (2) options:

Option 1
Institutions pay, but students download individually
1. An institution follows the normal ordering process (email & fax) to order an “eBook bundle” from Future Managers.
2. Such an order must be accompanied by a list of “Usernames” of all the students who will receive a specic eBook. e student’s college or school email address is preferred since the student will use this email address when downloading the Future Managers App.
3. An Excel spreadsheet containing the following elds;
• e-mail address (which will be the username)
• Password (which can be the student number or ID number)
• Device (PC/Mac, Android™, iPad or iPhone)
4. Once payment is conrmed and a student’s email address and password is loaded on the eBook platform (by Future Managers) the student will be able to download the eBook onto his/her device of choice.
5. e student’s device could be a tablet, Smartphone or Personal Computer.
6. For all tablets and smartphones students must download the specic eBook via their device – see the “App Download” section.
7. The “paid for” eBook will show as “Owned” in the FM App and the student can proceed with the download.
8. NB – It is essential for students to use the same email address and password (as the one the Institution provided to Future Managers) when registering in the FM App for the rst time.

Option 2
Institutions pay and “self-host”
1. An Institution follows the normal ordering process via email, or ordering on the Future Managers’ website or by faxing an order for an “eBook bundle” from Future Managers.
2. Future Managers will (once the order is conrmed) provide the Institution with download links to all the eBooks purchased.
3. These links will enable the institution to download the purchased eBooks onto its server. is will enable the institution to pre-load the eBooks onto their various devices whether they are handheld devices or PCs.
4. To pre-load an eBook from the institution’s server onto a tablet or PC use the following instructions:
• An IT specialist at the institution contacts Future Managers for assistance.
• Preload requirements:
a. The Server/Host must have access to the Internet.
b. The Server/Host will have to have sufficient licenses that will allow multiple students to connect.
c. The Server/Host must be accessible on the institution’s WIFI network with a specific IP address or name that will need to be sent to FM.
5. It is important to note that the download link will only allow the institution to pre-load the purchased number of eBooks onto the student devices. Authentication will happen for each student every time they open the book. If in a class, then all 30 students can type the same password, and it will not work the 31st time.
