Army explores e-textbook possibilities

The Army wants to harness multimedia learning with e-books that can be used on any electronic reading device, reports NextGov.com.

Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command began market research in December to explore the possibilities of e-textbooks that would work across different e-readers and desktop and mobile operating systems for the Army Cadet Command. The goal is to provide multimedia-enriched, college-level course materials across any platform so students can access them through school or personally supplied devices.

Newt will be proud! More to the point this can be/is an excellent test case. (Has the Fed ever tested a program?!) If this works sufficiently well, including being cost effective, this would be a model for education and training across the entire spectrum of the Fed workforce. Best wishes. Go Army!
