26228682 story Nature Publishes a "Post-Gutenberg" Electronic Text 124 Posted by samzenpus on Wednesday November 23, 2011 @11:23PM from the book-of-a-lifetime dept. lpress writes "Most of today's electronic textbooks are re-purposed versions of print books. Nature has published an e-text that departs from the traditional book format and business model. Their Introduction to Biology e-text was created from the ground up and consists of 196 modules rather than a sequential book and the student gets a lifetime subscription for $49. Nature will continuously update the e-text as the science and pedagogy evolve."
