Textbooks are expensive and excessive. Let's change that.
Ginkgotree is a tool for professors and teachers to build their own, online textbooks from any resource - whether copyrighted books or open educational resources. We put the power of educational content creation back in the hands of those who teach it. Students only pay for the exact pages in books they are assigned, and we save colleges' falling admissions rates by saving their students money.
Cost is a primary reason students leave college. We help institutions fix that problem. Without requiring them to allocate new funds in their budgets, we provide an all digital solution to replace existing textbooks at 1/10th the cost that students already buy.
Our app integrates with a school's Learning Management System (think: Blackboard) for campus-wide adoption. Faculty choose their resources: books, website, videos, or their own files, and then share their collection of resources with their students.
