Ebooks and elearning content will converge in one industry

Ever thought of a possible convergence of eLearning and ePublishing industries?

This is an interesting discussion happening in the LinkedIn’s Educause group.

Most of the leading book publishers now publish their books in electronic format. But that is not enough to stay ahead of the competition.

Increasingly, publishers will add interactivity, assessments, annotations, tracking, learning platforms as well as collaborations and integrations with third social platforms, etc.

Aren’t ebooks’ new features very close to the elearning content?

It seems that these two industries will converge soon; their ecosystems are very complementary to each other.
