Heard the recent buzz about Apples release of iBooks2 which offers media enhance iTextbooks and tools for course development? A helpful overview of the situation is posted on Tony Bates blog at: Apple makes iBooks 2 and cheap textbooks available – but is this a good thing? The good news is great new digital resources for students at low cost. The questions…access in Canada, monopolies, device-specific access, new expenses (must own an iPad?). In any case this is a signpost to the direction higher education is heading collectively and it won’t likely be long before the bar is raised across the board for the future of educational resource development.
