text/plain (29 lines)

Enligt en artikel i The Chronicle of Higher Education
så vill en del läroboksförlag i det stora landet i väster inte längre tala
om läroböcker utan om mjukvaruprogram elller personligt utformade


Textbook publishers argue that their newest digital products shouldn't
even be called "textbooks." They're really software programs built to
deliver a mix of text, videos, and homework assignments. But
delivering them is just the beginning. No old-school textbook was able
to be customized for each student in the classroom. The books never
graded the homework. And while they contain sample exam questions,
they couldn't administer the test themselves.

One publisher calls its products "personalized learning experiences,"
another "courseware," and one insists on using its own brand name,
"MindTap." For now, this new product could be called "the object
formerly known as the textbook."
