Have you always dreamed of being able to say you make your living creating knowledge? This is the work of a textbook writer. However, as enjoyable as it may sound, writing a textbook is not as easy as one might think. For those hankering to do it, you may want to consider creating learning management system-based instructional material instead.
Learning management systems are an instructional medium increasing in importance, while textbook use has begun to see a decline in recent years. But besides all the exciting benefits of learning management systems, there are some aspects of textbook-writing that many aspiring writers don’t take into account, including the long and difficult process of trying to get published, negative reviews, and a need for strong backbone. Moreover, when a textbook is finally published, disappointing sales are a not-uncommon occurrence.
