Why Innovative Educators Are Using Interactive Content

In this four-part webinar series on interactive content, we talk to game-changing professors who decided to sidestep the traditional route to academic publishing. You’ll hear about what motivated them to create digital textbooks, their experiences working with traditional vs. non-traditional publishers and how interactive texts have altered and improved their students’ learning experience.

This series will show you:

  • How educators can use existing course materials to create their own customizable content
  • What educators are doing to monetize their original course teaching materials
  • How technology has changed the way students learn, and what this means for teaching strategies
  • Why the traditional textbook model is broken, and strategies to fix it
