EDUPUB Summit 2015


Establishing a globally interoperable, accessible, open ecosystem for e-Textbooks and other Digital Learning Materials via EPUB 3, Educational Sector Standards and the Open Web Platform

The goal of this year’s IMS Global Learning Consortium Summit was to bring together major players across multiple global K-20 education segment, including: publishers, institutions, platform and solution providers, standardization organizations, content distributors, and accessibility organizations. The focus was to help advance the effective adoption and use of e-textbooks and other digital learning materials by improving interoperability and baseline capabilities via broad adoption of enabling technical standards.

The EDUPUB Summit 2015 provided an update on the emerging EDUPUB profile of EPUB 3, including progress on the follow-on projects defined via shared consensus of previous workshops.
