Content Mixing and the Cost of Textbooks

We're always delighted to see AcademicPub be mentioned, but we were particularly ecstatic to see two articles that really "got it" this week.

The first was a piece in Mind/Shift KQED entitled "How Open Education is Changing the Texture of Content" by Frank Catalano in which the author singles out AcademicPub as a way to allow
"digital textbooks to be created with a mix of copyrighted (paid) and open (free) content. The automated process leads to a custom electronic or paper book – essentially, a digital course pack."
The second piece comes to us from Education-Portal, which talks about how Build Your Own Textbooks Can Save Students Hundreds and mentions, of course, AcademicPub.
