Net Texts helps schools replace or supplement textbooks with customized multimedia courses delivered to students’ iPads, Android tablets, and laptops!
Textbooks are heavy, expensive, and outdated. Instead, teachers can select high quality, multimedia open educational resources from the Web, combine them with their own materials, and create courses that enhance learning for their students. Material shared on Net Texts can be used by any teacher, breaking down the barriers between educators that limit innovation in education.
Students use the Net Texts app to view a diverse range of materials. They can take interactive assessments in the app, receiving feedback on their answers. Students can even watch a video or listen to audio while navigating the app, a unique multitasking solution.
On July 4th, 2012, researchers at the Large Hardron Collider annouced the discovery of the Higgs Boson Particle. On August 6th, 2012, the Curiosity Rover landed on Mars. Textbooks simply cannot keep up with the rapid changes in today’s world. Teachers can update their Net Texts courses in just a few minutes, adding interesting new materials or revolutionary discoveries.
