Video a key part of the textbook revolution

We're pretty excited about Apple's recent plans to revolutionize digital textbooks. Why? Because it means educational publishers will have to start thinking about how they can turn their boring old text into video.

In case you haven't heard, iBooks 2 (to be used by students on the iPad) will make textbooks interactive, by using video, animation, search features and more. They say the move could do for publishing what iTunes did for music.

Video makes learning come alive. In today's digital world, it's always at their fingertips. It just makes sense. We loved helping kids learn with our vocabulary videos and we hope to use our knowledge and skills for math, science, history and more.
