Flat World Knowledge, a free, open source textbook publisher, has announced plans to add support for direct integration of its books into campus learning management systems (LMS) like Blackboard and ANGEL.
Typically, college professors and publishers will only make supplementary materials available on an LMS or link to outside sources and e-books. With Flat World’s LMS-supported textbooks, they will be able to include content in its entirety directly on the platform and split up chapters into various folders according to their syllabus.
Eric Frank, Flat World Knowledge co-founder and chief marketing officer says that they are aiming to have books available with LMS support by Summer in time for the Fall semester.
