Runestone Interactive

About Runestone Interactive

The Runestone Interactive project does at least three things. 1) Provide great online interactive textbooks for free 2) Provide open source authoring tools for creating and hosting quality interactive learning resources. 2) Host custom versions of textbooks for colleges, universities, and high schools around the world.

Started in 2011, the first versions of Runestone textbooks went public in June 2012, we have since grown to over 13,000 students a day, and are used in over 500 institutions around the world.
