Apple Education Event is Tomorrow! Digital Textbooks?
Apple’s education event in New York City will be tomorrow, January 19 at 10am Eastern time. According to Bloomberg sources, Apple’s main focus of the event will be a set of tools that will “make it easier to publish interactive textbooks and other digital educational content.” They also said Apple’s main market is for K-12 students.
I do like the idea of digital textbooks. Personally for me I have about $400 to pay for my textbooks this semester. If Apple can publish the same textbooks in digital form for about half the price then Apple may have a winner. Imagine having acces to all your textbooks in a sleek and lightweight iPad. I do also have my regrets. There’s still nothing better than a hard copy.
