Tony Bates is always interesting and therefore so is his vision for an open textbook ("a personal vision for what I want to do, he writes. "There are innumerable alternative visions one could quite legitimately have for an open textbook"). It will be "aimed mainly at faculty and instructors in colleges and universities" and "a model for open textbook publishing, incorporating many of the design principles of ‘good teaching’ – such as active and social learning, use of video and audio, crowd-sourcing, remixing and adaptation."
