TechCrunch | Publishers Sue As Boundless Learning Grabs $8M For An Open Alternative To Textbooks

TechCrunch | Publishers Sue As Boundless Learning Grabs $8M For An Open Alternative To Textbooks | offene ebooks & freie Lernmaterialien (epub, ibooks, ibooksauthor) | Scoop.it
It seems it's a big news day for eBooks and eTextbooks. Google is winding down its eBook service for indie publishers, while Apple and top publishers are the subjects of domestic and European probes into eBook price-fixing.

...

Just as Apple’s iBooks 2 and Inkling’s interactive publishing platform for eBooks before it, Boundless Learning is really aiming to render physical textbooks obsolete. The startup is convinced that an oligopoly of textbook publishers are driving up costs — as 80 percent of the market is controlled by the top four publishers.

Amazon KDP Select – der große Wurf oder Rohrkrepierer? | Matthias Czarnetzki | offene ebooks & freie Lernmaterialien (epub, ibooks, ibooksauthor) | Scoop.it

***
Das in den USA angebotene Amazon Prime unterscheidet sich signifikant vom deutschen Angebot. Während wir hier für €29,- pro Jahr nur eine schnellere Lieferung bekommen, zahlen Amerikaner $79,- pro Jahr und bekommen damit eine Art digitale Flatrate. Mit der Markteinführung des Kindle Fire wird die Stärke dieses Programms deutlich: US Prime Kunden haben ohne weitere Kosten Zugriff auf Filme, TV-Serien, Musik und Bücher – sofern die Rechteinhaber ihren Content dafür freigegeben haben.
Genau das bedeutet die Teilnahme an Amazons KDP Select Programm: sie geben ihre Bücher in den Pool der für Kunden kostenlos verfügbaren Bücher. Amazon stellt jeden Monat ein Budget bereit (im Dezember 2011 $500.000), welches unter allen Rechteinhabern, deren Content genutzt wurde, aufgeteilt wird.

***
Nachteile für deutschsprachige Autoren

Erster und größter Nachteil: Exklusivität. Die ist nie gut. Amazon verlangt, das die am Programm teilnehmenden Bücher für die Zeit von 90 Tagen nirgendwo anders erhältlich sind. Konkret heißt das in meinem Fall: ich dürfte meine Bücher nur für den Kindle anbieten – da ich aber den größten Teil meiner Einnahmen auf anderen Shops erziele, ist Exklusivität das Ausschlusskriterium.
Zweitens: das volle Amazon Prime Programm steht bisher nur US-Kunden zur Verfügung. Und wie oft die deutsche Bücher lesen kann man an einer Hand abzählen. Es ist daher davon auszugehen, das deutschsprachige Bücher in diesem Programm nicht der Renner werden.

Paper Books vs. iBooks — An Overhyped Debate?

Paper Books vs. iBooks — An Overhyped Debate? | offene ebooks & freie Lernmaterialien (epub, ibooks, ibooksauthor) | Scoop.it

Though the initial success of Apple iPad was in the personal use segment, it’s revolutionized a number of verticals including entertainment, healthcare, education, travel and many more. Last year, Apple further strengthened the iPad positioning in the education segment by launching iBooks 2 – thereby empowering students with a new digital learning mechanism. The company also launched iBooks Author, a free textbook creation and publishing tools to facilitate the process of launching iBooks.

Back then, Apple claimed it was reinventing the textbook. Critics were quick to point out that paper books were still better than iBooks on several fronts. Since then, the iBooks vs. paper books debate has been a hot topic in the education and publishing segments alike. While there’s no doubt that iBooks is a game changer, it would be an overkill to say that we’re ready to go paperless with our education and embrace iBooks in favor of paper books.

To be honest, I think this is an overhyped debate as iBooks vs. paper books isn’t really an either/ or proposition. Here are a few simple arguments to support the theory that iBooks are meant to complement paper books, not replace them in our education system.

It appears since the arrival of iPads that the PC it is no longer the cutting edge technology that it once was. My blogs aim to investigate the use of this handheld technology in primary education, in particular Spring Cottage Primary School's 'iPad journey' and look at some of the apps that can be used across the curriculum to engage, motivate and inspire children's learning in the classroom.

Free Technology for Teachers: Widbook - Collaborative Creation of Multimedia Books

Free Technology for Teachers: Widbook - Collaborative Creation of Multimedia Books | offene ebooks & freie Lernmaterialien (epub, ibooks, ibooksauthor) | Scoop.it

Widbook is a new service that is part multimedia book authoring tool and part social network. On Widbook you can create a digital book that contains text, images, and videos. Widbook is collaborative because you can invite others to make contributions to your books. To use Widbook you have to create a profile on the service. The books that you create become a part of your profile. If you allow it, other Widbook users can add content and or comments to your books. Likewise, you can search for others' books and make contributions to their books.

http://www.widbook.com/

 

...

Widbook allows you to create a virtual bookshelf of books that you create and or find on Widbook.

One drawback to Widbook in its beta current version is that your books can only be viewed on Widbook right now. Hopefully, in the future they will allow embeds on other sites.

...

Applications for Education
Widbook has the potential to be a good web-based platform for students to use to construct multimedia research papers. Widbook could also be a good platform for teachers to use to create their own multimedia textbooks to use in their classrooms.

Was in Deutschland noch Neuland ist, gehört in manchen anderen europäischen Ländern längst zum Alltag: Lehrer und Schüler bereiten sich nicht mehr nur mit Schulbüchern, sondern mit sogenannten Open Educational Resources (OER) auf den Unterricht vor. Das sind Lehrmaterialien, die frei und kostenlos zugänglich sind. Im Internet gibt es Portale voller Referate, Linklisten und Arbeitsblätter – und jeder kann sich daran bedienen. Aber wie sinnvoll ist diese Art des Arbeitens? Und welche Risiken und Vorteile bringen Open Educational Resources mit sich?
