Boundless - The Free Textbook Replacement

Boundless - The Free Textbook Replacement | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

Boundless has launched the public beta version of its brand new site.

 

Boundless is...

- iPad-friendly and works on laptops;

- a way to turn open source information into a simple easy-to-use digital textbook;

- is free;

- generates digital resources for users based on the textbook practitioners and/or learners would normally use in their course(s).

 

Users can still use the printed textbook and use Boundless as a free digital supplement.

 

The new Boundless UI has an instant search feature built into it  and the digital textbooks have no expiration date. They’re not rentals or anything that would cost you money since it’s all open source.
