"Instead, Houghton will be providing a computer-based teaching system
it developed with Microsoft Corp. that will connect teachers,
students, and administrators. It’s a radical shift away from the
classic textbook publishing model and represents an industry

in Boston.

The Boston publisher is selling some textbooks to Detroit, but most of
the contract is for such software such as Learning Village - a
customized, interactive classroom network."
