A New Look: Boundless Gets Usability and Visual Improvements

With Boundless, we set out to create a learning experience that went beyond just a textbook. We’ve just introduced updates to Boundless that create a better, more unified navigation around your book to make learning more efficient. The new design allows easy access to flashcards, quizzes, and highlights from one core spot. Take a look at what we’ve been up to recently to see how Boundless just got even better than your assigned textbook.


Simpler study experience

We’ve added an intuitive method to guide you through the reading process. Now, you can click into the next chapter in your book from the main dashboard instead of trying to find your place in the table of contents. Just click “Continue reading” to pick up where you left off.

A new progress bar makes it clear how far you’ve read in each section. This gives you a sense of where you are in the reading and how much you have left to study. Giving you a look at your progress while you’re studying can motivate you keep learning!


Your progress in the Boundless book is also reflected at the chapter level. We’ll mark a section with a green check mark when you’ve completed your reading. No matter where you land in your textbook, we’ll show you how much you accomplished, and how much you have left to go.



Easier navigation

Switching between sections is now even simpler. Use the arrows on either side of the screen to navigate between sections when you need a refresher or are ready to tackle new content. Take a look at the improved navigation for both desktop and mobile below!



Clear reading time estimates

We hear from lots of students that Boundless is convenient because it’s a quick, effective way to study. We’ve made that study experience even better by adding reading time estimates for each of our SmartNotes and Full Text sections.

Now, when you start reading in a section, you’ll see an estimate of how long it should take you to complete the reading. If you’re in a rush, the shorter SmartNotes are a great way to study key points.

Our new design and navigation make it clear traditional textbooks are outdated tools. Boundless combines the best content and learning tools to make your study experience the best possible — and we hope you enjoy these updates as much as we do. To check them out, login to Boundless from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. All updates are also available for our iOS apps.
