Catch of the Day - Flat World Knowledge - 5/27/2011

Flat World Knowledge is the world's largest publisher of free and open college textbooks.


Flat World Knowledge books are free online and open for instructors to modify and customize for their own courses. Flat World Knowledge books are also the center of a social learning network where students learn from each other as well as the books.


Some students will use the books online, but some will prefer other formats. Flat World Knowledge also offers a number of convenient, moderately priced options for these students: print-on-demand softcovers, audio books and chapters, self-print options, and more.

The books offered by Flat World Knowledge are written by experts and are peer-reviewed, edited, and evolved. They are supported by test banks, PowerPoint notes, instructor manuals, print desk copies, and knowledgeable service representatives.


Educators can search the Flat World Knowledge catalog, request a print review copy or review a book online, complete an online adoption form, give a URL to students, and download supplements. You can customize a book before adopting it or anytime afterward.
