E.O. Wilson’s Life on Earth is a new interactive HS biology textbook and iTunes U course for iPad, packed with rich media, and available for free. The scale of the project was unprecedented for development of a textbook. The goal was to discover and refine the digital presentation motifs that would deliver the richest and most memorable experience possible for students. We’ll fill you in on how we did it, what we learned, and we’ll explain our excitement about iBooks, iTunes U, and the future of digital textbooks
