On Valentine's Day 2013, we unveiled the first-ever Integrated and Individualized BookApp (IIB).
Books have forever been following essentially the same format, even with eBooks, bookmarks, animations, and finger gestures. But shouldn't a book, in the form of a tablet app, learn how you learn and adapt accordingly? Shouldn't such a book app integrate a MOOC and remove the boundary between online learning and textbooks?
That's exactly what IIB does. It Integrates video, quiz, feedback, and social learning into the textbook (that's one "I") and adapts both the content and presentation of the chapter based on your Individualized learning need (that's another "I"). In fact, we cannot even call it "a" book anymore, as different people will actually be reading different versions of the book.
We're excited to announce that the first IIB, Chapter 3 of our textbook Network 20Q, is launching on February 14, 2013, as a free app to 100 students around the world.
