Big Publishers: Can the Spanish Armada transform into the British Fleet?
Can big publishers change enough to address how today’s students learn, educator’s teach, and shifting business models associated with both? In the US textbook market we have three very large players. Big publishers have process, coordination, and business accountability issues which are far less of a hindrance to smaller organizations. The result is that larger organizations can’t change quickly. While all publishers are concerned with make quarterly numbers and hitting academic deadlines a large corporate infrastructure while necessary for a large organization limits the ability of that organization to adapt to market demands.
How does the move from print to digital look different for large publishers versus smaller organizations? Schools continue to adopt instructional resources and either ask that the electronic version be included with the print, ask for a class set of print and a digital version for students, or only want the digital version… sometimes only a few chapters! We will discuss how publishers, small and large, can make it through this morass and emerge successfully in a digital first world. We’ll touch on tools and technical standards that can ease this transition.
Take a seat at as guests take a bite out of questions like:
What role are big publishers playing in the future?
What opportunities does this leave for smaller organizations?
Is it sustainable to provide both print and digital assets?
Is it the job of the publisher to lead innovation or to reflect innovation and change?

When someone mentions standards in education most people assume they are referring to curriculum or instructional standard. Get ready to delve into the world of technical standards that serve as the foundation of our digital offerings. We’ll take a look at a wide variety of such standards and examine how they impact your product implementation, platform support, and business development.
For those of you who shy away from the technical, this is an opportunity to unwrap some of the jargon you hear but have been too embarrassed to ask about… xml, HTML5, APIP, Dublin Core, RDFa all sound familiar but you have no idea what they mean? Stop just nodding knowingly and learn what you need to know to engage in discussion about how to apply these standards to make the best products.
For those propeller heads out there, we have a seat at the Table for you as well. Get up to date on the latest happenings on several different standards and join the online discussion. It’s a veritable technical feast!
Knowledge is key to driving business and structuring your solutions so you can address the needs of your customers. Join host Michael Jay and guests as they explore the structure behind standards and answer questions such as:
How are instructional standards continuing to evolve?
What are the impacts instructional standards have on teaching and learning?
What standards are used by publishers and development shops?
What impact do standards have on my business?
Experts and beginners alike can embrace the value of understanding more about standards, and the common misconceptions.

Mercedes Wore Black: Florida Politics. The only thing predictable is the unpredictability. When Janis is fired from her job at the newspaper, she focuses on the causes that matter to her. The environment and the economy. That embroils her in the 2014 election. When her good friend Mercedes encounters danger and is brutally murdered, Janis begins to investigate. She finds herself in a political maelstrom of big money, lottery, and interests with opposing goals. Joe Guidry, Opinion Editor at The Tampa Tribune writes; "Fast-paced, exquisitely written, Mercedes Wore Black vividly depicts the underbelly of the newspaper industry and the all-too-real shenanigans of those who are ever willing to sacrifice Florida's natural treasures"

As the world prepares for the Centennial observance of the start of World War I, virtually every media outlet around the globe is preparing both coverage and content to saturate the minds of a public which has virtually no memory of the conflict. Included in this historical deluge, will be a small mountain of new books professing to have new observations and interpretations of the first great global conflict of the 20th Century. And though much of this content will be focused on interested adults, some publishers are taking the time and effort to reach out to teen and young adult audiences and introduce them to World War I through the medium of graphic books. An evolved version of comic books, graphic books provide a picture component in addition to text. Graphic books have been growing in both popularity and sophistication over the past few decades, and several publishers are going to be issuing volumes with a World War I focus in the months and years ahead.
So it is no surprise that one of of these books is going to focus on one of the most compelling personalities of the First World War: Baron Manfred von Richthofen. Known as the "Red Baron," Richthofen was the highest scoring fighter "ace" of World War I with 80 confirmed "kills" against Allied aircraft.And despite being killed during the "Michael" Offensive in 1918, remains today one of the most respected and well-known personalities of the conflict. To learn more about Manfred von Richthofen and the new graphic book which tells his story, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) author and illustrator Wayne Vansant, the creator of the new graphic book THE RED BARON. So tune in for an hour on the history of World War I, and the story of the Red Baron.
