age of "webization" of almost everything, everybody
is expecting that somebody will produce digital textbooks
for important subjects since apparently anybody can do it.
However, everybody gets surprised realizing that nobody did
it. At least not in the form expected. Putting on the web
page the digital form of otherwise printed document is not
exactly what everyone expects. Multimedia is a big (buzz)word
but educational content found on Internet looks more like
demo fro multimedia tools then like a usable digital textbook.
What is a digital textbook, anyway?
This paper is identifying the needs of a student, analyzing
the available technology, pinpointing the problems and offering
some suggestions what needs to be done in order to create
much expected digital textbook of some quality.
