The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations have awarded Wake Forest University $250,000 for further development of Biobook, a new kind of e-textbook created by Teaching Associate Professor of Biology Dan Johnson and Associate Professor of Physics Jed Macosko.
Biobook offers content in an unconventional way. Unlike the traditional heavy and expensive textbooks of old, the $30 Biobook is accessible by smart-phone, tablet or computer. It breaks down complex and lengthy topics into small, manageable chunks of knowledge that can be changed and updated as educators see fit.
