Business: Support Materials: What is Kortext?

About Kortext

Kortext is an online platform that provides you with eTextbooks for your core texts.

Look out for emails from Kortext! These emails will activate your eTextbooks and enable you to set up your own personal Kortext account.

Using Kortext

Note: We recommend that you first activate your Kortext through the emails sent to your student email before accessing them on My Learning.

If you haven't received emails giving you access to your Kortext, or if your Kortext doesn't appear on your My Learning module pages, please contact:

c.starling@mdx.ac.uk

To Access Kortexts through My Learning:

1. Log into myUniHub using your username and password.

2. Click on My Study and go to the My Learning box.

3. Click on a module title and then click on the module title you want to read the Kortext for.

5. On the My Learning module page, scroll down. In the right-hand column, you will see the Kortext link.

Kortext Licenced eBooks

When using Library Search, you may come across a Kortext Licenced eBook.

These Kortext licenced eBooks act differently from the assigned Kortext for your modules.

Once you access Kortext Licenced eBooks, they will only appear on your Kortext account for a limited amount of time (e.g. a few days). After this, you will need to access them again using Library Search or click on 'Borrow Again' on your Kortext Account bookshelf.

Downloading the Kortext app

These digital textbooks can be read offline using the Kortext app, digitally annotated, and read aloud.

You can read important sections for your studies and go back to your notes whenever you want!

To read your book offline, you need to download the Kortext app onto your computer or portable device.
