Adiós EPUB. Hola PWP

La próxima revisión del formato EPUB no será EPUB4, sino PWP, o sea, Portable Web Publication (Publicación Web Portátil), una nueva generación de ebooks que podrán leerse en cualquier navegador, sin que se requiera un software especial de lectura. Esta será una de las consecuencias de la fusión de International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF, el organismo creador del formato EPUB) con el Consorcio Word Wide Web (W3C, siglas en inglés), organismo que desarrolla los lenguajes Web. Bolchiro es la única editorial española miembro de IDPF y su director, Fernando Nolla, explica que este acuerdo persigue la total integración del ebook con la web.

These 38 colleges are getting rid of textbooks to save students money

These 38 colleges are getting rid of textbooks to save students money

Education is expensive enough, without students having to fork out hundreds of dollars each semester for the latest textbooks - and over the past decade, textbook prices in the US have risen by a ridiculous 82 percent. Now an education advocacy group is finally doing something about it, by rolling out an initiative that will allow 38 community colleges in the US to trade their textbooks for open-source materials - a move that could save students up to US$1,300 each year.

The new initiative comes from Maryland-based education reform group, Achieving the Dream, who have given US$9.8 million in grant money to 38 community colleges across 13 states.

That money will allow the colleges to cover the cost of transitioning from textbooks to open-source learning material, which students can then access, download, or print for free.

Half of the colleges selected for the grants already use free learning materials in some of their courses, Achieving the Dream admits, but they'll now be able to put together online resources for even more degrees.
