NEWBURYPORT, MA -- (Marketwired)-- Trunity Holdings, Inc., (OTCQB: TNTY) ("Trunity"), a leading global provider of living digital textbooks and eLearning solutions designed to increase engagement and foster one-to-one learning, today announced an upcoming webinar introducing "Environmental Science," the digital textbook by co-authors Dr. Cutler Cleveland, and Dr. Robert Kaufmann of Boston University.
Environmental Science, the first living digital textbook of its kind, provides a systems perspective and coverage of key topics in environmental science, and integrates ecology, economics and policy using energy and material flows. The science underlying sustainability is simply told through examples of cutting-edge content and real-world applications.
The Environmental Science textbook has been adopted for courses at Boston University, University of California Monterey Bay, University of Redlands - California, the Community Colleges of Spokane, Highpoint University - North Carolina, and the State University of New York, with over 40 additional U.S. higher educational institutions considering it for their Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters.
During the webinar Dr. Cutler Cleveland will guide attendees on a tour through the Environmental Science digital textbook; and lead the discussion on the ease of customizing the textbook to adapt to specific teaching styles and learning objectives. He will also address how to integrate a digital living textbook into the classroom experience using the Trunity platform's integrated authoring and course tools.
Trunity CTO, Joakim Lindblom, Ph.D., will join the webinar to discuss the ease of authoring for education on the Trunity platform and how to deploy digital textbooks into classrooms. "Trunity seamlessly integrates learning management, social collaboration, real-time analytics, and royalty tracking with the textbook content," stated Dr. Lindblom.
