Impelsys team will be at London Book Fair 2017
Venue: Olympia, London
Date: 14-16 March, 2017
Frankfurt Book Fair 2016.
Frankfurter Buchmesse – So if you were to ask someone to define the publishing industry, the best definition that you get will be “the people who go to Frankfurt Book Fair”. As always, the biggest and busiest publishing event on the planet did not fail to impress.
Bringing together about 7000 exhibitors from over 100 countries and providing a unique global publishing marketplace that oversees business deals worth billions of dollars and the added glam, glitterati and after parties…… if you’ve anything to do with books, publishing and education industry; Frankfurt is, without doubt, the place to be at this time of the year.
The fair is also an important platform for showcasing new technological innovation in educational space; both on delivery infrastructure and media/content. The Classroom of the Future, at the fair this year deserves a special mention and aligns well to all that we have been talking about over the past couple of years, supported by some new product releases and ongoing research and development efforts at Impelsys.
We believe the educational space is in for a major overhaul in the coming years, with the way content is delivered through collaborative platforms empowering remote learning and the structure of the content itself getting interactive and personalized. Our prototype of adaptive e-textbook technology was unveiled at the book fair raising a lot of interest from STM publishers. The adaptive technology incorporated within the book modifies the presentation of chapter sequence based on the proficiency of the learner, rendering efficient and effective learning outcomes.
This is just the beginning, schools worldwide are breaking down the traditional four walled classroom style teaching to leverage technology assisting collaborative remote learning and professional and academic content publishers are today transforming to educational companies providing cutting-edge interactive personalized content. The future really looks interesting and we are excited to be a part of this glorious industry.
I would like to thank everyone who visited our booth at the fair and took interest in our products and service offerings. As always, my sincere gratitude to our clients and partners for helping us push the boundaries of technology and innovation to bring out cutting-edge solutions. On behalf of Impelsys, I also thank the organizers of FBF and everyone involved in putting up this great show.
