THE CUSTOMER’S NEED
“I wrote my own textbook.”
Chris, an instructor at Georgia State, wrote a textbook on financial modeling that he wanted to publish for his students as a digital textbook. In addition to his original textbook content, he also developed tutorial videos and Excel templates that needed to be made available as password-protected resources.
Custom VitalSource E-text and Companion Site
Wiley published Chris’s textbook using a modified editorial workflow which provided basic publishing services. Chris’s digital textbook was delivered in VitalSource’s e-text platform and featured his embedded video and downloadable Excel templates, all hosted on a password-protected site on Wiley’s servers. The final product was priced at $95 with a 15% royalty. Development time: 6 months.
