Creating a Student Account


Are you using Acrobatiq with Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle or another LMS? 

There's a good chance that if you're accessing content for a course online, you're doing so through your institution's LMS. Depending on how your institution integrates with VitalSource, there are a number of ways you can access your courseware—see Access Courseware via Your Learning Management System (LMS)


Creating a Student Account

Account creation is only required if you are not accessing your Acrobatiq course through your school's LMS.

Social Login simplifies the account creation process by utilizing your existing Google and Apple
accounts, reducing the number of passwords you need to remember. Follow the instructions here.



Before you get started you will need:

  • The Course Key provided by your instructor that enrolls you in your correct course. If you don't know your Course Key, reference your syllabus or check with your instructor.
  • An access code or a payment form (credit card or PayPal). If you don’t have an access code, you can use a credit card or PayPal to purchase access.
