Current Textbook Not Cutting It? Create Your Own Flexbook

The CK-12 Foundation was created in response to California Free Digital Textbook Initiative.   This organizations mission is to help reduce the cost of textbooks in education.  They are using an open-content, web-based collaborative model they call a “FlexBook.”   CK-12’s hope is to help teachers create a more focused textbook that will meet the needs of their unique students and state standards.

Currently they have many different “Flexbooks” available on a variety of subjects for teachers to use.  They also provide interactive webinars and video tutorials to assist teachers in creating their own “Flexbooks”.  This is a great resource for all teachers to assist them in creating content that is tailored to their state standards and curriculum goals.
