An interesting discussion with a German publisher

I met Dr. Jurgen Schmidt from Ernst Klett Verlag GmbH in prolearn meeting. I asked him if he thinks e-learning will change the publication. He sees this trend, but he does not expect it to happen soon. Two obstacles, for publisher, publishing in multi-media greatly increases the cost of publication, because more workers are needed to work on media part, such as sound, image, picture and animation. If this era does come, the publisher will change greatly. Second, so far the teachers are not convinced about the effects of new technology. The young generations are still taught on paper. So he expects that e-learning will not completely replace traditional learning methods in the next generation. He greatly concerns the quality of the learning material in new media. It seems to him that the quality of the learning material in new media is not easy to achieve.
