Runestone Interactive: Democratizing textbooks for the 21st Century!

Textbooks should not be limited to the static pages of a paper book.  Especially in computer science!  Textbooks should be dynamic and interactive, allowing you to explore and play as you learn, and helping you to focus on the concepts that are important to you!  Textbooks Should be FREE so that anyone who wants to learn can learn.  Textbooks that cost $200 or more are a crime.

Textbooks should help teachers do a better job of teaching!  Your textbook should help you identify concepts your students are struggling with, and help you use your time effectively by minimizing grading fuss.

Textbooks should help students succeed, with sound pedagogical features to help you do your best in the course.
