Making More Of Content In Education

William Chesser (Ingram Content Group)
Sponsored Sessions Empire-Hudson

The transformation of publishing currently under way has demonstrated the viability of books in the digital age. As the publishing landscape continues to shift and student learning habits are moving the way of digital, how are education publishers developing content that provides interactive learning experiences? How are publishers reaching new markets and institutions around the world? Is working with a third party to enhance content the right choice? This session will provide answers to these questions and more, and will outline e-textbook development and distribution strategies that publishers are using to make the most of their content.

This session is sponsored by Ingram Content Group
