A new take on studying for exams, Boundless allows students worldwide to download content relevant to their readings completely free of charge.
As a college student myself, I see firsthand how textbooks can cost hundreds of dollars at a time. Searching constantly for ways to mitigate the cost, students turn to used books and even online resources. Boundless goes beyond offering just a textbook. By creating an organized platform through which to match your assigned readings as well as built in study tools, Boundless offer ways to learn and understand more than just the words on the page. All you need can now be streamed directly from Boundless to your smartphone, PC, or tablet.
Boundless CEO Ariel Diaz states “We see it as how do you create the next-generation content platform, which is much more than a textbook.” Boundless attempts to match its content as closely as possible to your class required textbook through the use of free online information. This website has become a way for students to gain the meat of the texts with some added learning benefits yet not have to pay the exorbitant amounts we have come to know too well. Regardless of whether or not this company has a tangible or sustainable business model, perhaps it will be able to make a large impact on the future of textbooks worldwide. It’s a free alternative to traditionally costly textbooks. So type in your book title, author or ISBN and get started today!
