In case you haven't discovered it, there's an tool called Glide that allows you to quickly turn a Google spreadsheet into a mobile app. I tried it out and the tool is pretty easy to use. So I thought, "What if I took my syllabus (currently in Microsoft Word) and copy and pasted the paragraphs into a google spreadsheet?" Well, it worked out very well. Take a look. Either scan this QR code with your mobile phone:
Here's what the syllabus looks like on a mobile device:
Here's a screenshot of the google spreadsheet I created that was imported by Glide to create the app:
If you'd like more info on how to do this yourself, just feel free to get in touch with me.
(note: Glide is not associated with Cengage. Just a very cool tool)

Glad you're all liking the idea. Here's some help to get you started:
It definitely takes a little tinkering to get it to look the way you want, but I found that fun. Feel free to get in touch with some feedback.

I didn't see this question - so I investigated it and can share the answer:
Students do NOT need to download any app to use this. You don't even need a QR scanner app on an iphone.
It just senses from the camera that it's a webpage and opens it up. Color me impressed.
