  MHP Enters E-Book Market

In October 2010, McGraw-Hill announced the launch of its Create platform. The platform gives teachers control of the customization of higher education classroom content. Using Create, teachers can create their own e-books and printed texts by selecting content from a vast library of resources – and receive a digital proof in under an hour.

The Creative initiative allows MHP to enter the e-book market in some sense. Instead of having to produce expensive hard copies of textbooks, professors can now customize them electronically. The growing popularity of e-readers and MHP's Creative platform could complement each other well.
