Open source textbooks
« on: December 12, 2008, 05:41 AM NHFT »

cK12 and Flat World Knowledge are two companies trying to turn textbook publishing on its head. cK12 is a non-profit while Flat World Knowledge will be (Spring 2009) attempting to make some money in this endeavor.

Classroom 2.0 has a good article about them. Disrupting Textbooks: cK12 and Flat World Knowledge

vK12 is online now, though I found that their website has some bugs in it. Also, I haven't looked to see how well peer-reviewed their texts are.

Flat World Knowledge is looking to "go commercial" in spring 2009.
