Digital Learning Experiences: Future of the Textbook - Steven Mintz, Inside Higher Ed

What might the textbook of the future be like? One possibility is a digitized version of existing textbooks, supplemented with a wide array of ancillaries – videos, glossaries, quizzes, and links to web resources. These e-textbooks feature highlighting and note-taking tools. Another possibility is the customized textbook in which instructors draw content from a publisher’s asset vault. A growing number of publishers are unbundling their preexisting textbooks to create self-contained modules. But there is another possibility, offering far greater potential for enhancing outside the classroom learning: A next generation digital learning experience. It is a learning ecosystem rather than an e-book plus supplements. https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/higher-ed-beta/digital-learning-experiences
