Digital reader allows simultaneous reading and audio, video

Net Texts has now added the Net Texts Reader, which allows students to open an instructional audio or video item in a corner of their screen.

With the Reader students can read a PDF version of an out of copyright book from Project Gutenberg while listening to an audio recording of that same book from LibriVox. Or they can watch a Khan Academy video while taking an interactive assessment on the Khan Academy website, or looking at a CK-12 flexbook on the same topic.

The Net Texts system is a free, web-based teaching aid for the classroom that provides teachers access to a library of open educational resources (OER) collections, which they can then manage and combine with their own resources to create, publish and deliver lessons directly to students’ iPads, Android tablets, or computers.
