Trunity is one of the pioneering companies on the forefront of today’s still nascent eTextbook and eLearning space, having assembled a powerful framework of technologies that allows for content from a variety of sources to be fused together under what is arguably the most effective educational knowledge management, publishing, and delivery system in existence today for creating cloud-powered, living digital textbooks.
This revolutionary Trunity eLearning Platform brings together all of the tools needed to deliver highly efficient K-12, as well as higher education, but is also ideal for heavily granular and necessarily customized corporate enterprise and government agency requirements. Adaptability of material is an emphasis here and thus the platform makes a perfect way for educators to bring in vast amounts of subject matter, on any given subject, irrespective of how new it may be, meaning that the Trunity framework is able to optimize content and cost in a way that was not possible hitherto.
Let’s face it, education is evolving at the same pace as the information landscape itself and cloud-enabled distributed learning platforms are the way forward. Trunity took a nuts and bolts approach to ensuring that tasks like authoring content for a given educational area, or learning management are easy yet produce high-fidelity results. The culmination of this approach is realized in the Lifelong Library, where all Trunity-based learning materials one has ever accessed are available at your fingertips in perpetuity.
Think for a moment about the power to share peer-reviewed, expert content as a complete textbook or to siphon off the best parts and repackage that optimal content around a custom academic model using Live Cross Publishing to share the content in a social learning environment like the Trunity Learning Exchange. Trunity’s Learning Exchange is a giant marketplace of ideas with expert authored and reviewed content that acts as a massive resource to the entire Trunity user base, designed from the start to be intuitively searchable, so that the best and most appropriate work can be gathered directly from crowdsourced and peer-reviewed inputs.
Ever looking to up their ante, TNTY recently (July 23) tapped the renowned Professor Cutler J. Cleveland, Ph.D., Professor of Earth and Environment at Boston University (also Center for Energy and Environmental Studies faculty) for the Chief Education Officer job. Dr. Cutler is also co-author of the world’s first introductory textbook made available entirely via the web, Environmental Science, the company’s best-seller and the most used of all digital course material thus far. With research funding to date from entities like the Mellon Foundation, NSF, NASA, EPA, and the MacArthur Foundation, as well as publication in leading periodicals like Nature, Science, and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists Bulletin, this hire is a real feather in TNTY’s cap as they continue to grow their distributed learning platform.
Serious investors can expect more new relatively soon as well, with Dr. Cutler and TNTY’s CTO, Joakim Lindblom, Ph.D., doing a seminar on digital textbooks at the upcoming Campus Technology’s 20th Annual Summer Educational Technology Conference this July 29 to August 1 in Boston, the premier higher education tech conference in the U.S., and a superb stage from which to draw in key industry personnel to the TNTY story. Because the Campus Technology Conferences cater specifically to administrators, faculty, and IT personnel in higher education, the seminar gives these two, key TNTY leaders a chance to really educate the educators on the power of their product.
