22. E-books http://www.interactivebooks.com.au/
Flash Books– US luxury interactives with sound and action, expensive and broadband hungry, sound is US accented, also some on CDRom – a better system, can load them to your school server and archive the disc – expensive, but good at $40 a book
PDF Books– active internet links to Australian data and film clips, etc. Popular, come on the CDRom – and can be networked.
Flip Books – NEW Flip Book format we have developed ourselves for Primary aged kids, cost is the same as the paperback per book for 12 months access for all the school community – could be as low as $9.95 – total annual cost – so you can have only one book if you like. Book(s) sit on the virtual bookshelf and it is accessed from your web site by all the school and from home too. No borrowing – just need to know the user name and password. Schools to develop books to meet gaps in the curriculum, and the source school would get paid per subscription, charge a one-off fee of $50 to set up the virtual bookshelf for the Flip Books, and any subs now apply until 12/2011
