If your school or institution has subscribed to one of the offerings below, click, enter and enjoy! Should you have any questions, you will find more answers towards the bottom, or you may find what you need from one of these links:
Enjoy the publication the way the author intended, with the same great layout as the print version, except with the special features digital can provide, such as audio, search, note-taking, easy navigation and the convenience of viewing on the device of your choice.
Gain access to full sets of books, magazine subscriptions and so on through your campus IP (ie. no need for username or passwords!)
Purchase one classroom password and have all students accessing these books without having to sign up for individual accounts!
Annual subscriptions for institutions. Each of the above are offered as yearly subscriptions, which are available to all students within the institution. There is no requirement for a username or password, as access is freely availlable to those within the IP range of the institution. There is no reader and nothing to install.
How do I get access?
If your school has signed up, you can enjoy unfettered access. Click one of the logos above to enter the index page. Click index from any page, and you will return to that main screen. From that screen, you can easily move between any of the magazine issues or you can return to this main page. If you get an error message, your school is not a subscriber, or you are not coming in through their gateway (which is necessary). You MUST come through the school's gateway, or Static IP (not yet available on a dynamic/rotating IP).
Who can subscribe?
This Academic Subscription is meant primarily for schools. The subscription fee will depend up on the number of students who may be using the publication at your school. We base the subscription price on enrollment numbers, affording you the most economical way of providing current, well-produced, educational content into your classrooms. If your school has a total enrollment of 10,000 students, but only 200 are studying Japanese, then the school would pay a fee based on those 200 students (for the Hiragana Times).
Check out the new, easy Class Set option!
This opton was created to allow teachers full access to a series of books, without incurring the high costs of acquiring print books for each student. This is also a very simple way of encouraging reading without encumbering teachers and students with codes, payments, user logins and so on. This can be as easy as one password for the class to use, allowing full access to a complete series of Readers. Get the books you want, and need.
Tap to listen to the passage, sentence or question. No audio player is introduced to your system as we work off of local resources.
Take Notes, then copy and paste your notes (in any language) to an email, your notebook, or wherever best suits your needs.
Some pages are "photocopiable" which means they can be copied and printed as needed. Tapping this icon brings up the one page as a PDF.
Most books have a "contextualized search", which brings you to the area where that searched term is located. Put in a word and press Enter.
We are teachers and educators based in Japan, the UK, Canada and the US. Our focus is on providing high quality content digitally. We preserve the strength of books (the layout, graphics and so on) while also adding in the elements that teachers want, and students need. Simultaneously, our solution enables the books to be used as full e-learning content and integrated to the wider LMS environment.
