Books For Future Learning Now!

Apple’s new iBook launch for academic folk will not help with the cost of my books as my books are integrated into the tuition for my degree. For those who have to pay for their books this would be superb alternative to the heavy and expensive books offered at this time. Being an online student, I am subjected to the propriety system in Vital Source. Another drawback I have at this time in comparison to Appleā€™s new model is the lack of interaction. To have video incorporated into your digital book is a boon. The fact that instructors could add a personalized spin on instructing by adding their own recorded clips offers another avenue to tailor the courses taught by schools. Classes specializing in specific courses such as the media rich courses for which I am enrolled in, I welcome this offering by Apple and can hardly wait for the offerings to flesh out.
