Walter Antoniotti, author of the series, has created free Internet libraries for each subject. These libraries contain free companion books, other supplemental learning material, career information, blogs, reference materials, improving grades information, and links to relevant sites. Walter’s company, 21st Century Learning Products, is part of an unofficial effort to lower, and in some cases eliminate, the cost of textbooks. Other participants include Textbook Revolution, Make Textbooks Affordable, and Freeload Press.
Walter believes Internet publishing is better than paper publishing. “Once developed, there is no manufacturing and distribution cost. These books are interactive. They include Internal links, which make learning easier as definitions and concepts from earlier chapters appear as review links in later chapters. Audio and video links to important events make learning more interesting. Economic data for Walter’s Economics Interactive Class Notes With Links, contains over 100 links, is kept current while paper books lags by 3-5 years. I can’t wait for the next big economic event to generate important audio/video information. THe next day, I’ll add it to the appropriate chapters and to the Educational Audio/Video Internet Library.
