As the 2012 back-to-school season picks up speed, so do the updates to eBooks and eBook platforms. Tech providers know that now is the time when students decide if they will make the leap to eBooks, and if so, which device and platform they will choose. That said, Kno recently released a set of updates to its eBook platform. To keep everyone up to speed, here are links to my previous coverage of Kno’s development:

And now for the new updates:

Collaboration Tools: Now, through the use of social media, students and teachers can share highlights, notes, and more within the content of their books. The system is designed so that teachers can create within the document and then share it with students outside of the classroom. Additionally, students can share with whomever they choose, whether it be a classmate or anyone else using the same eTextbook.

Expanded Platform: The Kno Android app, which is available for free download, will now be preloaded on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 device. In addition, Kno announced that the app will also be available for previously excluded Windows 7 mobile devices.

Advanced Search: Search now includes all notes, textbooks, and PFDs, thus powerfully including and indexing must-find information and making it easily available.
