Otago Polytechnic lecturer Ruth Lawson recently published her Anatomy and Physiology of Animals text to Wikibooks, with worksheets on Wikieducator.

The work has been listed by wikibooks as meeting the Good Books Criteria and has been included as a Featured Book!

Visual design and layout was by Sunshine Connelly – who sourced theme images from the Flickr Creative Commons.

Bronwyn Hegarty offered advice, support and project management for the effort.

The project was funded by Otago Polytechnic.

I wonder if New Zealand’s Performance Based Research Fund will ever come around to recognising the criteria met, exposure and acclaim?

A printed and bound version is available through LuLu.com, and the Commonwealth of Learning is considering further work on the text to take it to a more global education readership.

Well done Ruth, Sunshine and Bronwyn!
