From textbooks to Smart-Mooc
Born in the midst of a renaissance and of religious origin, the textbook has long been dedicated to the teaching of moral values. It was Jules Ferry who, by the 1890 decree, required teachers to use books to transmit knowledge. The textbook is becoming a reference, an essential tool for learning, at school level of course, but also in all types of training. This is the support that guarantees the implementation of the program.
But in the age of the digital revolution, when schools and the business world are seeking to personalize teaching, what about the book, the textbook, both on its form, its usefulness and its use? Our learning experience is driven by the respect of a program, and an order in that program (the famous summary).
