Re: Digital Textbooks and Locally-stored Student and Educational Data


I’d like to also acknowledge the web components team and the ongoing work at the Web Applications Working Group ( , Dimitri Glazkov, Hayato Ito, Hajime Morrita and numerous others ([webcomponents]&hdr-1-name=subject&hdr-1-query=&index-grp=Public_FULL&index-type=t&type-index=public-webapps).

Web components, in the context of Web-based education software, digital textbooks as well as encyclopedic resources, are exciting topics.

The use cases of educational software, digital textbooks, in the standards processes, facilitating such discussions, broadening use cases to digital textbooks, are important.

I opine that an Educational Web Activity, inclusive to the broader scientific community, inclusive to scientists at groups such as IMS and IEEE, would be more constructive, more productive, e.g. to the entirety of Web-based education software (, than the Digital Publishing Activity.  That scientists around the world, at AAAI, ACM, IEEE or IMS, would be routed to discuss all topics educational technological and pertinent to the Worldwide Web, W3C, with the Digital Publishing Activity, the Digital Publishing Interest Group having a closed mailing list, is a concern.

Kind regards,

Adam Sobieski
