Ancillary Materials


Did you know most of our textbooks come with ancillaries to help you create a well-organized syllabus, test your students’ understanding, and more? These materials are free to course adopters and granted by your sales representative. Adopt a textbook or contact us to get access to ancillaries for your course.

Accessing your ancillaries

Human Kinetics is pleased to introduce HKPropel, a new ancillary delivery and learning platform! The new platform 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 complete our inspection copy feedback form. Upon confirmation of your adoption we will email you an access code along with instructions on how to create an account and navigate the site for the first time.


Instructor ancillaries for some existing products are not yet available in HKPropel. These ancillaries can be accessed without a login on their own unique web page.

Instructor resources are delivered in HKPropel in an Instructor Collection. Instructor Collections typically include the eBook and an Instructor Pack.  

The eBook is a digital version of the text. Instructors can highlight, annotate, or bookmark content within the ebook in HKPropel

The Instructor Pack may include one or more of the following types of teaching aids: 

Test package
The test package provides you with a wide range of questions designed to assess student understanding of the key concepts in the book. The questions are broken up by chapter, and come in a variety of types, including multiple choice, true-or-false, fill-in-the-blank, and essay. You can build your own tests and quizzes using downloads designed to integrate with your learning management system or to print for a traditional paper-based assessment..

Chapter quizzes
The ready-made chapter quizzes allow you to check students’ understanding of the most important chapter concepts. Each chapter quiz contains 10 true-or-false or multiple-choice questions covering the chapter learning objectives. You can download files for integration with your learning management system or for print as a traditional paper-based quiz.

Instructor guide
This guide offers tools to help you successfully deliver the course and often emphasizes areas that students may find difficult to understand. It may include sample course syllabuses, suggested course outlines, reading schedules, and class assignments, as well as key points, key references, case studies, and/or links to online sources.

Presentation package
These ready-made presentations for every chapter of the book feature slides highlighting the key concepts, including images and video clips. The slides can be used within PowerPoint or can be printed for distribution to students. You can easily add, modify, and rearrange the order of the slides.

Image bank
Usually includes all or most of the figures, content photos, tables, and diagrams contained in the text, sorted by chapter. The images can be used to develop customized presentations based on your specific course requirements. You can also use the images to create handouts for your students. A blank PowerPoint template is also provided that you can use to quickly insert images from the image bank and create your own presentations.

Instructor videos
Some texts have accompanying content-specific video clips organized by chapter for easy access.

* Please note – the number and type of ancillaries may vary by title
