Applications

  • The best learning outcomes happen when the learning is interactive and the student is involved. Active Textbook makes that goal easier to achieve. Educators can adapt existing textbooks to the specific demands of their classroom, receive feedback, and update on the fly. Commenting, quizzes and self-assessment tools bring the student actively into the learning process.

    Additionally, Active Textbook is designed for integration with learning management systems such as Blackboard and Moodle, and allows for simple organization of assignments, quizzes and assessment reports delivered hand in hand with the learning material. And Active Textbook’s commenting system can allow for easy interaction between educator and student.

  • Active Textbook’s authoring tool is ideal for designing engaging corporate learning materials. In addition, Active Textbook can be configured to bring extra value to corporate learning through interactivity and reporting. Interactivity allows projects to receive input from participants and also to monitor progress and engagement.

    Active Textbook has integrated analytics and reporting to provide detailed information on how your organization’s materials are being used. It is easy to share learning materials within your organization at a variety of permission levels, and to have accurate feedback on usage.

  • For publishers and distributors of digital documents, Active Textbook is a tool for adding value to your products. Imagine a book on cinematography with illustrative movie fragments seamlessly integrated into the text body; a treatise on audio recording with embedded sound; video narration or annotation for a classic text; a workbook with interactively solved problems.

    With Active Textbook’s easy-to-use yet extremely powerful authoring tool, enriching the standard document format is an opportunity not to be missed. All the while, all material on Active Textbook is protected from unauthorized copying, keeping the rights of authors safe.

  • Active Textbook makes it easy to share source materials in a group setting. Multiple readers can introduce new source material to the group, and then annotate it with indexes, references, hyperlinks, and multimedia elements to clarify and expand the meaning of the original document.

    Active Textbook’s commenting system lets all members join the discussion. Reading clubs, historical societies and other groups united by common interest can benefit from this collaborative approach to storing, sharing, and analyzing documents online.
