The Cyberschool Challenge
That could mean a completely different type of textbook publisher. While mainstream textbook publishers aren't reacting negatively to cyberschools, they aren't rushing to create a new market, either.
Rather than dampen acceptance of electronic courseware, this wait-and-see approach is simply setting the stage for a new generation of independent e-publishers and self-published content.
In their unwillingness to embrace cyber-textbook publishing and tackle the related issues head on, traditional publishers might be ceding the industry leadership they have worked for decades to attain.
