TextbookRevolution - 13 views

    "Textbook Revolution is a student-run site dedicated to increasing the use of free educational materials by teachers and professors. We want to get these materials into classrooms. Our approach is to bring all of the free textbooks we can find together in one place, review them, and let the best rise to the top and find their way into the hands of students in classrooms around the world. At Textbook Revolution, you'll find links to textbooks and select educational resources of all kinds. Some of the books are PDF files, others are viewable online as e-books. Most books are aimed at undergraduates, but there are at least a few resources at every level, from kindergarten to post-doc. All of the books are offered for no-cost (gratis) by their respective copyright holders. Beyond that, each book is as individual as the author behind it."

Wired Campus: Advocates for the Blind Sue Arizona State U. Over Kindle Use - ... - 0 views

    "The National Federation of the Blind and the American Council of the Blind are suing Arizona State University for its use of the Amazon Kindle to distribute electronic textbooks to students, saying the device cannot be used by blind students. The groups say the Kindle has text-to-speech technology that reads books aloud to blind students, but that the device's menus do not offer a way for blind students to purchase books, select a book to read, or even to activate the text-to-speech feature, according to a joint statement by the two groups."

      crucial ideas - will be using MOOCs, flipped classrooms, BYOD very very soon. 2014 or earlier.
    Good day Steve In 2000 I created my on flipped an open enrollment evening college statistics class using a free online programed statistics textbook plus unique excel statistics software for homework. The top 20% (about 5 students) learned much more with less work and spent much less time in class/lab. The middle 60% had much less math anxiety, learned something but not enough to be useful. The bottom 20 finished with probably did something for their self-esteem.
