TouchSmart Publishing presented an update of the company's product development programs at the Hamilton County Business Center (HCBC) SoundingBoard Forum in Cincinnati on Thursday, October 7, 2004, at 8:30 a.m. EDT. TouchSmart PublishingÂs president, Jason Barkeloo, conducted the presentation.
The presentation covered TouchSmart Publishing's expected portfolio of touch user interface (TUI) platforms, including related products such as the BookTracker surveillance tool.
Additional discussion points surrounded the prescriptive publishing model for K-12 education. This concept seeks to create a 'one-book, one student' distribution model that is contrasted with the traditional education publishing model of 'one-book, all-students'.
The demonstration illustrated how TouchSmart Publishing is poised to bridge the digital divide and be the only complete No Child Left Behind (NCLB) compliant textbook in the world. Further, these textbooks will also meet the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS) adopted by the U.S. Federal Department of Education in July 2004.
