The activity of Gutenberg Technology (the publisher of C’est Parti !) is driven by the strong belief that, in the Internet age, textbooks have to be re-invented.
The new textbook should be customizable, multi-platform, the result of an interaction between authors-creators, and readers-users. This without compromise neither on affordability, nor on the quality of the user experience.
The textbook is meant to be designed by educational communities, to deliver the best experience to the teachers and students. The power of Internet, and collective intelligence brings the tremendous leverage needed to start this transformation. To bring together the largest possible communities, the content is freely accessible online. A large user community does not mean value added loss, it means greater impact, and greater quality for our products.
By thinking the textbook as a multi layered object, we empower teachers to choose the learning environment that is right for their students, whether it is web, audio, video, picture reading, or just plain print books.
By gathering a well-structured community of educational practitioner (up to 200) thanks to our web-based platform, we can now bring you a high-quality educational content and a unique interactive learning experience. A collaborative thinking is very important to us in order to size up needs of teachers as well as students. What’s more, working in a team atmosphere has always been of great value for the members of our community.
So now, step in and join our community of contributors! We would be glad to have you for the next great collaborative adventure to come!
We are very fond of the Internet and the world of new possibilities it opened. To us, Internet must be a way to share high-quality educational content with others. Accessibility matters, especially in a time where textbook materials are so expensive and not enough spread on the Internet. That’s why we decided to use a Creative Commons license.
Therefore, we offer a free access to all our highly interactive digital body of knowledge in order to offer to the most learners and teachers a great learning and teaching experience. What’s more, empowering teachers is key to renew the educational system. That’s why you can mix, add, remove, modify or even create from scratch any content on our website whether it is lessons, dialogues, exercises or audio recordings. Now, you can have it your way.
