Every once in a while I stumble onto something really neat without really trying.
This is truly remarkable. CK12 offers (for FREE) a collection of customizable textbooks for download. Over 80 texts are available at this time.
Customizable, you say? How does that work?
Rather than simply downloading a textbook from cover to cover, you create a “Flexbook” which allows you to select the whole text or just particular chapters, creating a unique textbook. It can then be shared in any of 3 formats:
- printable pdf
- online e-reader
- html---interactive with videos and links
Subjects: mainly math, science, and technology, but also SAT prep, a bit of US history, and a bit of language arts.
Age range: Mainly high school, but also a few 6-8 grade level texts. I’m going to be taking a closer look at the middle school math and science myself. ;0)
