The Coming ePublishing Revolution in Higher Education

This interactive eTextbook predicts a revolution in higher education with respect to the publishing of academic articles, books and, especially, textbooks. As we transition from the print era to the digital era, three things will drive the way this revolution manifests itself in higher education: dissatisfaction with the status quo, the near universal accessibility of easily employed but powerful digital publishing tools and the competition amongst colleges and universities to reduce the cost and debt that students are asked to bear. How exactly will this play out? Who will win? Who will loose? What factors will predict the outcome? Contents include 67 pages, 20 graphics, 28 media files, 25 video files and 5 interactive widgets.
