eBuukuu produces digital educational materials that stimulate students’ curiosity while helping them to learn important content and creative competencies. Our interactive applications are aimed at advanced high school and lower-division college students. Most of our apps use historical and social studies approaches to teach about the past, including critical thinking skills, methodology, professional ethics, and the usable past.
eBuukuu’s materials are story-based, multimedia, and rich in connections to the past. They center around a story, supported by original documents and sources of many types, as well as instructional materials, including questions, exercises, and tools for teacher guidance and feedback to students.
eBuukuu’s web platform enables teachers and schools to purchase our materials or designate them for direct student purchase. Materials are licensed for student or teacher use, usually on a semester basis. If you are a teacher, interested in using one of our products in your classroom, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are interested in developing a story, email us at email@example.com.
