Safari U

Your course--in print, on the Web--your way

Safari U allows you to create RLOs of your textbooks, articles, and other syllabus material using a wide range of top technology books from publishers that include O'Reilly, Prentice Hall PTR, and Addison Wesley. While primarily tech/science books are accessible, this FREE service might be expandable or useable by ELLs.

One big advantage is that you can include your own articles and links and share-share-alike. I love this model, but how does anyone get paid for their time/labor? I think the idea may be that many students will pay for the printed version of the materials because of the convenience of holding paper text.

This will be an interesting experiment to follow.
