From Campus Technology:

E-textbook developer Kno has released Textbooks 1.6.1 for iPad, bringing new multimedia resources to the textbook reader, including videos from Khan Academy, and adding new support for interactive 3D objects.

Textbooks for iPad offers access to a catalog of 100,000 college- and university-level electronic textbooks from major textbook publishers, including Cengage Learning and McGraw-Hill Higher Education, among others. The app offers a range of enhanced mobile learning tools for working with textbooks, including a course manager that lets students organize textbooks and other learning materials in a central location, social networking tools that connect students via Facebook and Twitter, highlighting, sticky notes, chapter previews, and support for downloading and reading PDFs from the Web.

The latest release of Textbooks for iPad, version 1.6.1, includes a new beta feature called Smart Links, which brings contextually related external multimedia resources into textbooks accessed through the reader in order to help make material more accessible to students.
