Human Kinetics is pleased to introduce HKPropel, a new ancillary delivery and e-learning platform! The new platform offers the same ancillary components we currently produce but is more modern and will help us offer additional new ancillary tools, such as free ebooks for instructors.

To access your instructor ancillaries through HKPropel, you must contact a sales representative. Your sales representative will email you an access code along with instructions on how to create an account and navigate the site for the first time.

As we complete our transition to HKPropel, some existing product ancillaries will continue to be hosted in our legacy system. If your instructor ancillaries are not yet available on HKPropel, you can access them through My E-Products. Please contact a sales representative to gain access to the relevant platform for your instructor ancillaries.

Check to see if your ancillary products are available on HKPropel!

While you can download some ancillary content from HKPropel, unfortunately, HKPropel does not allow for you to download your book.
