New ELI 7 Things... Explores the Evolution of the Textbook

Tablet devices and the publishing they enable are leading us to reconsider what constitutes a textbook, and they certainly change the landscape of what it has traditionally meant to write and publish one. A new breed of rich-media publishing tools offers an evolving set of opportunities both for the creation process and for the kinds of resources that can be produced. These resources could include 3D charts and tables, interactive maps, continual updates, and quizzes with instant feedback.

In the 7 Things You Should Know About™ the Evolution of the Textbook, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative’s (ELI) latest in the monthly series, discover how the integration of text with various kinds of media, coupled with broad access to new creation tools, could result in these resources becoming valuable parts of students’ digital learning landscapes.
