In cooperation with the chair of theory and didactics of history, KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, noumentalia.de developed a tablet-based prototype of a multimedia schoolbook. This project will evaluate the use of new media and technology in school. By the use of video, audio, hyperlinks and various informational enrichments, new learning features and didactical designs are possible. To provide interoperability with other tablet devices, the contents are stored in standard HTML5 format. The prototype was created as a native iPad app that takes advantage of its device-specific features.
