XanEdu Introduces Multimedia Content in Course Packs

XanEdu Custom Publishing (www.xanedu.com), part of National Archive Publishing Co. (NAPC; www.napubco.com), in partnership with Harvard Business School Publishing and Darden Business Publishing, will provide digital video supplements and other multimedia case content to college and university business faculty and programs. XanEdu said it pioneered completely digital course-pack solutions and is now the first to offer multimedia as a standard course-pack format.

Beginning Aug. 1, 2007, a range of multimedia options will be available in XanEdu Digital and Digital Plus Print CoursePacks. Many of the most popular Harvard Business School cases can now include a video supplement, giving students access and insight into management and strategic and organizational challenges through interviews with CEOs and other key company footage. Interactive multimedia cases and simulations from Darden Business Publishing include stand-alone and supplementary materials. These products present real-world business situations through video interviews, text, animations, and individual and classroom exercises.

XanEdu can convert Microsoft PowerPoint presentations into streaming video, giving students secure, view-only access to lectures and notes without having to buy software. A printed presentation can also be included in the Digital Plus Print format. Faculty can share their favorite online resources and give students one-click access to other relevant digital content by embedding links to other Web sites.
