Euripides’ Medea download and installation instructions

If redeeming through RedShelf, go to the RedShelf book title page and use the “already purchased in store – redeem your purchase code” box to enter their unique purchase code (see attached). This will then prompt students to either create a RedShelf account or log into an existing RedShelf account. Doing so will put Medea in their RedShelf bookshelf to access indefinitely.

Students can then go back to RedShelf to access their eBook in the RedShelf browser reader through their RedShelf account at any time. The browser reader will work on any internet-connected device that supports a modern web browser (Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Safari...), including on laptop and desktop computers and Apple/Android tablets and phones. Apple iPhone/iPad and Android phone/tablet users can also download and access RedShelf eBooks through the RedShelf app.

Hackett also allows students to read their RedShelf ebooks 100% offline in either the browser-based eReader or mobile app after students first access their eBook online.

For general student support (redeeming codes, creating/accessing RedShelf accounts, software features), please see this RedShelf support page.
