Creating great content together
Here’s how it works
3 steps to the eSquirrel app
We or you create a course that is perfectly tailored to your textbook
You can choose from two different options:
|We create for you||With our pool of over 50 authors, we have learned to create high-quality, mobile-optimized courses inexpensively within a few months. You can also export these courses and use them outside of eSquirrel after the contract ends.||one time € 4 – € 20 * per task|
|Assistance with self-production||If you or your authors want to create the course yourself, you are welcome to do so using our intuitive authors-tool. We support you economically with our professional editorial team. You can then update or expand the course at any time free of charge. Of course, you can also freely dispose of this course.||one time € 0.50 per task|
* Prices vary depending on the complexity of the task.
As a result of the resulting sales boost, you will usually be able to cover the investment costs through a fraction of the additional sales in the first year.
You choose the right sales model
You have the choice to offer your online course as an add-on to the book free of charge or to sell it for a fee via our platform. Details about our price packages.
|Option||Free of charge to the book||Paid for the book|
|Starting position||Do you want to make your book more attractive and increase book sales?||Are you satisfied with your book sales, but do you want to offer your customers additional added valueonline with high-quality digital additional material?|
|Solution||Offer your coursefree of charge to your book (using a code).||Sell your course on our e-learning platform.|
|Costs||You pay us € 1 per code redeemed. Depending on the number of your courses, the costs are reduced to € 0.50 after a certain amount of redeemed codes. So that the costs cannot go on forever, there is also anupper limit.||You pay us an annual fee for each course. This starts at € 700 and decreases with the number of courses. We take care of support and ongoing maintenance.
You receive 50% of the simple contribution margin per course sold, i.e. minus the fees of Android and iOS.
True to the motto: “Instead of paying € 7.99, I get the online course for free because I bought the book”, your book automatically gets a higher value. You are also welcome to combine both options so that nobody who has not bought the book is excluded from the online course. In this case you save yourself the annual fee.
For Austria: We also take orders for the textbook campaign (as an e-book plus or teaching material of your own choice) free of charge.
Just like that your digital & interactive course is online
With a lead time of 3 months, your course is ready from the placement of the order. It is now available offline in both app stores(Android, iOS) both on smartphones and on tablets after a single download. In addition, a web accessis set up, through which teachers can also order collective licenses for entire classes. The perfect integration of your course into the classroom can create an ideal blended learning environment.
How do the students (and teachers or course institutes) get to the course?
- Students buy a single license in the app, take out a subscription or enter the code from their book in the app.
- Alternatively, teachers / course instructors / course institutes order using our class license – Here teachers get cheaper, but time-limited places for their (virtual) class, which they can create in the teacher portal. They receive a class code and use it to invite their students to their class. The settlement can be done via the school management, the parents’ association, the state, the municipality or other institutions.
eSquirrel offers great added value to our school books! Finally something really innovative, which students like to use and which also makes work easier for teachers.
Due to the possibility of using eSquirrel free of charge, I have been using it with my classes since distance learning since mid-March and am thrilled with it. Even now, in addition to face-to-face classes, I very much appreciate the exercises that are perfectly tailored to the textbook.
I’m a big fan of eSquirrel and have also received a lot of positive feedback from the parents.
