Building a Blueprint for Better E-Books - Campus Technology

Panzer is feeling much better today. In fact our kitty pilot felt well enough to do some exploring in the Catosphere. He found the Campus Technology site. With a little digging around there he found an excellent post about advances in the e-textbook field.

According to a post by Frank DiMaria, the National Science Foundation is funding a project to create interactive textbooks. Mike Qaissaunee of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, NJ, requested the grant after wondering if having interactive textbooks on devices would engage students interest more than traditional textbooks. The project works by having professors create the e-textbooks specific to their classes. To date three e-textbooks have been finished and students can access them across all platforms.
Interactive school books?

Panzer says, "Hmm ... What's next? ... Talking books? ... Oh, wait ... You already did that ... So, when will it be a talking textbook?"

Note: You'll need a cup of tea and a muffin for today's read.
