Living learning methods

Publishing in a digital era

The Case

Times change. Also in education. In particular, the Free Textbooks Act and the digitization of teaching materials have changed a great deal and, above all, very quickly. The life cycle of a book is no longer determined by wear. For publishers, this has a lot of influence on their products and services.

Publisher Malmberg is one of the market leaders in the Netherlands in the field of educational resources. With an eye to the future, Malmberg’s ambition is not only to keep up with the new developments, but also to become skilled as an organization in dealing with change.
