Hello Week 5 team – I thoroughly enjoyed your layout and structure of your OER! It was a great tool to highlight the strengths, areas of focus, and future projections for digital textbooks. My classroom uses digital textbooks for math, but am aware that other subjects such as science also utilize their resource digitally. Subjects such as English and Social Studies are still using the print, though I wonder if there is a discussion regarding the potential strain of reading heavy volumes of text from a screen.

One recommendation that I would appreciate learning in greater detail is regarding the formalizing process of creating a digital textbook. As I had great fun in creating my textbook, I know that my own taste of personality and curriculum focus may not be the best approach for other educators – so what would be the outlined process of creating a textbook for online access, or would I be recommended in only creating it for my classroom?
