Textbooks are a multi-billion dollar industry -- an estimated $3.5 billion for the K-12 market alone (1) . But the growing availability of digital content and open educational resources (OER) is giving schools the opportunity to bypass some of the traditional expenses of textbook purchasing. It's also giving teachers the opportunities to build their own textbooks.
Following Apple’s special education event today in New York City, the company has just posted a new video on YouTube titled “The textbook. Reinvented for iPad.” The video covers Apple’s new iPad textbook initiative and shows how the company wants to revolutionize the education market with textbooks that include video, audio and interactivity. If you missed the news conference, Apple has also posted a video broadcast of the event on their website. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
