Evan-Moor developing versatile online resource for teachers

Evan-Moor Educational Publishers said it is working on a new product, called Teacherfilebox.com, that will allow educators to choose which individual lessons they want to buy from the company’s entire catalog of print resources. Evan-Moor is taking its 25 years of content and chopping it all up into individual lesson plans, organized–and searchable–by subject and grade level. These will be made available in PDF format online, CEO Bill Evans said, and teachers or curriculum coordinators will be able to download only the specific lessons and files they want for a per-page fee. Evan-Moor also recently relaunched its web site to add more functionality for users. Thanks to a function called “Real Read,” educators now can page through many of the company’s books online to see if they want to buy the hard copy. Each book rendered online through the Real Read technology appears exactly as it does in print, page for page. About two-thirds of the company’s catalog of 350 curriculum guides is now available in this format on the Evan-Moor web site, with more books being added each month, Evans said.
