The top 10 free online courses | The impact of E-learning, good or bad? | Scoop.it
Entrepreneurs are always learning. Whether it’s through reading or watching a mentor work, learning how to do business better is a fundamental part of running a company.

 

So it’s little wonder many courses in the latest trend of free education are aimed squarely at entrepreneurs. While some may still view free, online courses with a sense of derision, the truth is these resources are quality sources of knowledge.

An Ex-Pixar Designer Creates Astounding Kids’ Book On iPad

An Ex-Pixar Designer Creates Astounding Kids’ Book On iPad | The impact of E-learning, good or bad? | Scoop.it
E-books are already a fraught subject for many readers, writers, publishers and designers, but children's e-books are even more so. Is it rotting their minds? Is it as good as good ol' paper? Is it too interactive for their own good?

Via Jansen Lye
James Ser's insight:

Interactive ebooks are digital projects that I work on as a digital designer myself. I also teach third year digital media students how to make interactive ebooks on iPads. In fact, this book is one of my examples that I showed in my class. In my opinion, both the story and the graphics are fantastic. The interactivity is intuitive and it complements the story very well. It is almost like mini game on each page. Highly recommended.
