Creating digital content is an exciting but at times intimidating task. Considering these questions will help you create and deliver your content effectively.
At VitalSource, we are committed to providing the best in educational technology to students worldwide. This is a commitment I strongly believe in.
Beyond that, as a member of VitalSource’s international team, I have been afforded the opportunity to meet some amazing people in some great places. As I meet our university, publisher and re-seller partners, I am astonished by their stories and the things they do to support students in their countries. As an ongoing feature in the VitalSource Resource, I will be sharing some of their stories and, if you will indulge me, a few tales of my adventures.
At VitalSource, we pride ourselves in our ability to find innovative solutions to customers’ unique problems.
We had the opportunity to do just that when Sweden-based Aim4Knowledge came to us with a desire to go beyond flat PDF files to meet the training needs of their clients.
I’m a book lover. I enjoy curling up with a great book and my wife owns and manages a lovely independent bookstore on Boston’s North Shore. I spent the first half of my 40 years in the education industry publishing print textbooks and still have many of them displayed proudly on my shelf at home.
The world of education is moving inexorably towards digital products. Also of course, publishers are caught in a Catch 22 – they know they need to move to digital, but a substantial amount of revenue still comes in from print.
Not all educational content is created equal. Content used for learning anatomy requires lots of images and diagrams. Content used for learning to speak another language needs audio recordings. And math content usually requires math notation.
