Digital texts are not new. In 1991, a videodisc-based program called Windows on Science became the first state-adopted electronic textbook in the United States. It was an interactive, multimedia-based program that enhanced the classroom learning experience with video and audio. Unfortunately, technology changed rapidly and videodisc players went the way of 8-track tapes. Ways need to be found to digitize printed educational materials so they can be posted online, be accessible to students and parents, and not be dependent on specific hardware that may become obsolete in the future.
