ActiveTextbook: Adding interactivity to your materials

Today I had a chance to preview a very interesting software produced by the Evident Point software company right here in Vancouver. The software is called ActiveTextbook. It allows a teacher to convert his or her materials into interactive courses while retaining everything that has been created already. For example, if you have lecture notes and you think it would be beneficial to embed videos or audio files as well as links or conceptual interactive checkpoints to your materials, the software will allow you to do that with minimal effort. Then it allows you to save your materials as an HTML document and post it as a web site. I found it to be a very interesting opportunity that will make your lessons much more interactive without forcing you to change everything you have been doing so far and learn lots of new materials. I think it is worth looking at. I also know that if you contact the company, you will be able to pilot it for free (I am doing it), so you can see if it works for you.
