According to the McGraw-Hill press release, educators will be able to build what they call "compound learning objects" using Microsoft Office and syndicate them using the McGraw-Hill platform. "Through this vision," they write, "educators, students and developers are able to personalize and enhance McGraw-Hill Education's courseware by creating and combining content that leverages the power of the company's adaptive and analytics platforms." McGraw-Hill has bought into the whole personalization thing. "The shift supports the increasing demands of educators and students to combine learning elements from multiple sources to create learning experiences that are distinctive, personalized and improve results."
