Please find the attached document titled, “The Virginia Digital Textbook Marketplace: Guidelines for Implementation” that has been prepared to assist school divisions interested in pursuing the use of digital textbooks and resources through the Virginia Digital Textbook Marketplace but are not sure where to start.
The document provides context for the development of the Marketplace, a brief overview of Copia Class (the digital platform used in the Marketplace), and steps that school divisions can take to begin adopting this new approach to learning materials and resources.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Jean Weller, instructional technology specialist, at Jean.Weller@doe.virginia.gov or by telephone at (804) 225-2825.
