Through the internet, we have seen many large industries change almost overnight. Professional content creation is easier now than ever before, even through our handheld devices. Distribution is equally as accessible and we are seeing more artists such as musicians and videographers electing to skip the middle-man and deliver their product directly to the consumer. With the educational landscape changing just as rapidly and high quality, free content and resources available to educators and students, educational publishers are certainly facing an uphill battle to stay relevant.
After exploring the Well Beyond Gutenberg section of this OER and considering earlier readings from this week, we want you to assume the role of Traditional Publisher and tell us how you will survive in this quickly changing landscape.
