Publishers Reach Deals For iPad-Compatible Textbooks.

The Wall Street Journal (2/2, Trachtenberg, Kane) reported that a number of textbook publishers have reportedly reached an agreement with software company ScrollMotion to make versions of their textbooks available electronically, with devices such as the new iPad in mind. A McGraw-Hill official said, “People have been talking about the impact of technology on education for 25 years. It feels like it is really going to happen in 2010.” However, he added, “nobody knows what device will take off, or which ‘killer app’ will drive student adaptations.”
