Video: Hands-on with Inkling 2.0, the iPad textbook — from by Colleen Taylor; my thanks go out to Mr. Johnny Ansari for this resource

This week, digital publishing startup Inkling debuted the 2.0 version of its software, which provides interactive, digital versions of college textbooks for the iPad.

The San Francisco-based startup is just down the street from GigaOM’s office, so I headed on over to Inkling headquarters on Thursday to get an in-person demo from the company’s Founder and CEO Matt MacInnis. In short: It’s so awesome it actually makes me want to buy college textbooks again, just to play with the app some more.



From DSC:
Why can’t these materials from publishers come right into an  8′ x 6′  “interactive whiteboard” (for lack of a better term) so that the professor can annotate/manipulate them in front of the classroom?
