ISO/IEC e-Textbook standard

Call for contributions

ISO/IEC JTC1/SC36* is working on a new international standard for e-Textbooks (AWI 18120).

The new standard will build on existing e-Book standards, adding any new features that are specifically required for use in learning, education and training.

The project team is currently calling for contributions from all interested parties, in order to ensure that the project meets the needs of stakeholders.

We would very much like to hear your views on what the new e-Textbook standard should include. Please complete our online questionnaire by following the appropriate link below.

Thank you for your help.
