Textbooks Get Smarter
The latest salvo in the e-textbook war is McGrawHill’s SmartBook effort. Unlike other efforts, tMcGrawHill and Area 9 have developed sophisticated branching technology that guides the student to a more personal and productive educational experience. Just answer questions along the way and the book adapts the student’s individual needs. The plans are for 90 courses and the system will work on PCs, Androids and iPads.
