Almost seventeen thousand (17 000) e-textbooks were redeemed by students who participated in the pilot e-textbook project during 2016!  These e-textbooks were made available by UJ at no extra cost to these students.  In 2017, Gradnet and the Centre for Academic Technologies (CAT) plan to take this academic initiative to even greater heights!

Students using e-textbooks can join the e-textbook community in Blackboard to access training material, videos and news:

  1. Sign in to Blackboard through uLink.
  2. Conduct an Organisation Search for CM0223 (CAT e-textbook community).
  3. Register for the community to gain access to all the relevant information.

Please direct further enquiries regarding this exciting project to either Willena le Roux (CAT e-textbook Project Manager) at or Charmaine Niemand (Manager of Gradnet) at
