Springer Nature Launches MOOC&BOOK Course-and-Textbook Solution

Springer Nature introduced a new product line, MOOC&BOOK, with the textbook Archaeoastronomy: Introduction to the Science of Stars and Stones by Giulio Magli. The book is connected to The Science of Stars and Stones, a MOOC that is hosted on the Polytechnic University of Milan’s Polimi Open Knowledge platform. The book has direct links to augmented reality material—allowing students to virtually experience astronomically related archaeological sites—and the MOOC offers unlimited online participation. Springer Nature notes, “Students who buy both the print and the e-book can easily access the content and benefit from the numerous exercises with solutions, in addition to those offered in the MOOC. The textbook features multimedia content, such as videos and augmented reality, which can be accessed by PC, tablet, or any other mobile device.” Four more MOOC&BOOK titles are scheduled for publication in spring 2021.
