All-you-can-eat Textbooks? Flooved Is Trying To Make That Happen

Posted at 7:29AM Thursday 17 Jan 2013

It's happened to music and movies, newspapers and magazines, and now a London-based startup is trying to make it happen with academic textbooks.

Flooved wants to create the "Netflix for textbooks," tapping into a trend towards the inevitable subscription-ization of pretty much all online media. Flooved's digital platform, which is in closed beta but will be open to the public on January 26, not only serves as a repository for digital text books, journals, and lecture notes, but it also lets students highlight text, make notes, ask questions of their peers, and share annotations.
