Inkling

We help doctors diagnose. We help businesses grow. We inspire students to learn. Our technology is now behind some of the world’s most compelling learning systems. And we’ve only just begun. Since day one, our founding team has had a vision for the future of learning. As we designed for this new approach, we came to the notion of cards: a chunk of knowledge, rather than a page. We’ve learned a lot since then. Of course, Inkling can publish ebooks that work beautifully on any device, but Inkling can also publish ebooks as thousands of little web pages.

Inkling sets the standard for how learning content is built, and how it should feel. MagicBook. Digital Book World Conference 2012.

The format is intended as a single format that publishers and conversion houses can use in-house, as well as for distribution and sale. It supersedes the Open eBook standard.[2] History[edit] EPUB became an official standard of the IDPF in September 2007, superseding the older Open eBook standard.[3] In August 2009, the IDPF announced that they would begin work on maintenance tasks of the EPUB standard.[4] Two broad objectives were defined by this working group: "One set of activities governs maintenance of the current EPUB Standards (i.e. Features[edit] File format[edit] Version 3.0.1 (current version)[edit] Version 2.0.1[edit] <? .opf file <?
