  • Content Delivery on Mobile Devices:
    More platforms, more apps, more options, more work — but is there more return?

    Wednesday, December 5th, 2012
    12:00-3:00pm
    Association of American Publishers
    71 Fifth Avenue
    New York, NY 10003

    How do we add another delivery mode for our content products and minimize the increasing costs?

    Back in the 90’s, practical electronic publishing came about through the confluence of three “killer apps”: the World Wide Web, PDF, and HTML. At first we hoped that we could just repurpose the print files for online, and maybe even eventually be able to drop the print edition. Yet today print still exists and we continue to pay for preparing the same content in multiple formats. And we need sophisticated content management systems to handle all the content, deliver it incrementally (singly on submission, as accepted, as edited & corrected or in a traditional issue) and archive it for the inevitable platform changes/upgrades.

  • Innovations in e-Educational Materials
    Tuesday, October 16th
    10:00am-4:00pm
    Association of American Publishers Offices
    71 Fifth Avenue, 2nd Floor
    New York, NY 10003
    Innovations in technology for producing and using educational content have changed the expectations of both students and teachers. In order to keep pace with this rapid change, publishers have had to rethink their strategies. This means not only being able to distribute books via electronic and mobile channels, but also discovering and evaluating the enhancements to the content that are now possible, and deciding upon its real utility. Which features will bring value to the content and which are bells and whistles?

    This seminar will explore recent innovations in e- textbooks and university-focused materials through presentations and panel discussions that bring the perspective of stakeholders throughout the process. The concept of adaptive learning and the new technologies made possible through HTML5 will be discussed, as well as the business models that can support them. Distribution channels will be presented from the view point of both a publisher and an aggregator. Representatives from higher education publishers will discuss their challenges with innovative educational content, and faculty members who have been teaching with enhanced e-books and learning management systems will share their experiences.
