"The BioBook is an interactive iPad biology college textbook that allows students and professors to create their own customized learning experience.

Since the launch of the iPad, colledge educators have been seeking an inexpensive alternative to paper textbooks that could leverage the collective knowledge of teachers and students. With a $249,000 grant from the Gates Foundation's Next Generation Learning Challenge, Dr. Daniel Johnson of Wake Forest University and education technology firm Odigia might have found it. Their BioBook, an iPad and web-enabled interactive biology textbook, creates a fully customizable experience for both students and educators.

Glearning blog: YouTube for teachers: 10 ideas how to use it in the classroom (receptively) | Nativos Digitales | Scoop.it

"Many teachers have taken up using YouTube in the classroom in the meantime, simply because it is a very simple to use website and can save an enormous amount of time. Before the advent of YouTube, when I wanted to show the News in school I needed to record them to tape or disk, which entailed waiting for the second showing, writing down the timecode for the start of a particular news item and so on.

How Online Innovators Are Disrupting Education - Jason Orgill and Douglas Hervey - Harvard Business Review

How Online Innovators Are Disrupting Education - Jason Orgill and Douglas Hervey - Harvard Business Review | Nativos Digitales | Scoop.it

And indeed, while it initially grew slowly, online education has exploded over the past several years. According to the 2010 Sloan Survey of Online Learning, approximately 5.6 million students took at least one web-based class during the fall 2009 semester, which marked a 21% growth from the previous year. That's up from 45,000 in 2000 and experts predict that online education could reach 14 million in 2014.
