Elsevier is well known in the technical book segment for its scientific, technical, and medical information oriented products and services. They company has partnered with California based Kno to have its electronic books distributed.
Kno has developed a new platform called Pageburst. Elsevier digital books on Pageburst go beyond typical ebook platforms by offering an abundance of interactive study features that are designed for the way students learn. The Kno platform for Pageburst will mirror the look of a traditional print textbook and will give students and educators direct access to all-new dynamic and interactive learning tools.
Now with Elsevier’s Pageburst digital titles being on the Kno platform, it will give nursing and health science students even more freedom in how they study—enabling them to access their course materials anywhere and at any time throughout their education and professional careers.
“As digital textbook sales continue to grow, the education methods for nursing and health science students should involve more advanced technology,” said Tom Wilhelm, Vice President, e-Solutions, Elsevier Nursing and Health Professions. “Students will have access to even more invaluable information presented in an interactive, even entertaining, fashion. Teachers will benefit by having better interaction opportunities with students through a medium that takes advantage of the best technology available.”
This new Pageburst initiative that Kno is giving its clients will give a very specialized segment of students the ability to interact with digital textbooks. KNO has really focused on developing very high quality algorithms and employs some very smart programmers.
