Bridging the gap between traditional and online learning, Kno’s newest product pulls in the most relevant of the Khan Academy videos to enrich whatever you’re reading about. Long gone are the days when your otherwise drab textbook might be lightened up only by the occasional graphic or stock photo. Now, while perusing your electronic textbook, you’ll be able to get videos from the educational gurus at Khan Academy, which has teamed up with e-textbook startup Kno to launch a new platform for its video tutorials. “Smart Links,” a new set of tools in Kno’s e-textbook library, calls up appropriate videos, websites, images, and other related content that might enrich a student’s engagement with the text they’re reading. A batch of math videos from the Khan Academy is part of the first release.
