  • 15. Convergence model and standardization+
  • 16. + Requirements for convergence model▶ To be digital textbook as a convergence model … -  Textbook and resources must be lightweight -  To avoid locking on devices have to use open standards -  But how many standards are needed and how to mix ? i.e, EPUB3, IMS Common Cartridge, IMS Learning Tools Interoperability, IMS Question & Test Interoperability, etc
