Datalogics, the premier source for PDF and eBook technologies for developers, recently announced the availability of Active Textbook, an eBook platform for the education market. Active Textbook provides a powerful platform that enables educators to bring interactive content into a student’s hands.
Want to know how to get started with Active Textbook? Let’s take a look at what Active Textbook includes:
- A Server component for uploading EPUB and PDF source content, as well as other media formats. The server component supports managing content distribution per user or per group access, lending, customizable adherence to publisher restrictions and can, of course, be integrated into existing portals and learning management systems.
Datalogics has created a demonstration server that allows you to upload and test content. Just connect to dtl.activetextbook.com with your desktop browser and you can begin browsing the available public content immediately. If you would like to upload and work with your own content, Datalogics can create a login for you: Evaluate Active Textbook

- Authoring tools to enhance EPUB2, EPUB3 and PDF content with interactive videos, quizzes, and other multimedia. We will demonstrate how to create quizzes in an upcoming post.
- Active Textbook API to further customize and tailor functionality. Client applications can use the Active Textbook RESTful API to upload content, manage users and generate reporting data.
