Some very intriguing thoughts by Brett Sandusky of Kaplan Publishing about ebooks, students, classrooms, and user experience.
In that vein, as we move into a highly digital landscape in which the print business is dying faster than most will admit (and it is), I think we’ll see more and more publishers start to experiment with ePub. In doing so, we will inevitably learn the limitations of this format and begin to push the envelope on what type of reading experiences can be delivered via eReading devices. The true potential of the so-called “enhanced eBook” is not just in the addition of separate media such as video or audio for the sake of additional media. Rather, it is use of the technology to create beautiful products that serve a purpose and delight our readers.
