Commentary by Stephen Downes
I think we are closer than ever to being able to realistically comprehend a future without textbooks. Digital textbooks offer a world of improvements: not only are they lighter and more portable, they allow instant updates, collaboration and lower costs (in theory, at least). From the Q & A with Andy Chlup of the Vail School District: "Teachers are able to focus on what is the best way to creatively teach the learning objectives. So, often teachers are limited to teaching with the resources they have. We aim to leverage the nearly unlimited potential of the Internet to give teachers access to virtually any resource they can dream up. This includes materials created by other teachers, subscription services, and many incredible free resources out on the web."
