I am assisting a math education research project at North Carolina State University, and doing an informal search for exemplars where rich internet interfaces were used to author, and interact with, course materials. 

Backstory and Motivation: The materials we presently are considering come from systems engineering and operations research. Although it uses mathematics, the approach is to use tools to explain algorithms, rather than a focus on presenting math formulas. It does however make use of spreadsheets (and solvers), and contains a considerable amount of content on linear programming and probability. The materials are meant to be very hands-on, with worksheets based on procedures coming from operations research. There is a strong interest in mobile delivery and use of standards-based approaches to managing and delivering/interacting with the content. 

To sum up: are there good exemplars of interactive curricula aimed at interacting with students, based upon MathML, HTML, ePub... ?
