Education was traditionally a linear experience. From teacher to student, author to reader. Today we socialize, learn and hsare within a network. Technology allows us to collaborate in so many ways we never could have imagined. We are designing Tome to be as social as possible. Where student projects can be authored by all, and authors and editors can work in tandem. On top of this, various media types allows specialists from different disciplines to build powerful projects together. With multilingual writing, share beyond traditional boundaries.
