BUKU offers unlimited access to all textbooks in the application without the need for students to pay extra. Thanks to this all-you-can-read concept, as a teacher, you have total freedom to use the best possible study material. The offer of BUKU even allows you to create your own book lists, select chapters and even pages, and share them with students. This makes readers a thing of the past.


BUKU works with the latest edition of a book. You can also choose to continue working with a previous edition. With BUKU, both teacher and student always have the desired edition.

BUKU is prepared for ‘enriched content’ such as interactive exercises, videos, audio clips, and exam training. These extras are increasingly being included in eBooks, which makes studying easier, more effective, and more fun. This allows the student to prepare better and the teacher to go over the substance more easily and effectively.
