I attended the DC meeting that led to the 2011 Final Report, and was amazed at the energy in the community. Now that we have some roadmaps and general strategies, it's time to tackle the specific barriers to student learning. One that is important to me is the textbook, both for majors and non-majors. 

I'd like to take the pulse of this community and see what they are thinking and wanting to see. Specifically I'm asking 4 open-ended questions:

  1. Are current commercial textbooks sufficiently flexible and adaptable to fit the needs and goals of PULSE Community members?
  2. If not, what is missing, or SHOULD be eliminated? 
  3. Is the time right to add a shared digital/print "E-source" to the toolkit, that links directly to existing PULSE tools, but can adapt to other strategies too?
  4. If an open access E-source were launched, would PULSE Community members contribute to it if they received public author/contributor for their work?

Tell the community what you think.

Dan,

I believe the future lies in content delivered via creative, multimedia video, with texts employed as references.

Hi Dan,

These are great questions.  I will bring the E-source question up at the next PULSE Fellows meeting. It is an interesting idea.
