Sixty electronic textbooks (e-textbooks) are available to Broward students, parents and teachers online through the District's Broward Enterprise Education Portal (BEEP).
The District's e-textbook initiative began in 2006 with K-12 science textbooks and has grown with each district-wide textbook adoption since then. A full-complement of e-textbooks is available for courses with district-wide adoptions in mathematics, reading, science and world languages. In addition, publishers have voluntarily offered their available e-textbooks for secondary social studies courses. Additional e-textbooks will be added with upcoming annual, district-wide textbook adoptions.
In addition to the convenience of being able to access a textbook online, the online versions provide opportunities for practice problems and self-assessment. Parents may also read the text to struggling readers.
Students and parents can access student editions of e-textbooks by going to (http://beep.browardschools.com
), clicking on the Student or Parent Portal and entering their BEEP username and password, which is the same as their Virtual Counselor username and password. If a student or parent needs help with their username and/or password they should contact their school.
Teachers may access the e-textbooks by going to the website, selecting the Teacher Portal and entering their BEEP username and password.
