In this paper the author challenges the thoughts, practices and assumptions related to the creation, acquisition and use of textbooks and digital learning resources in the digital age. Firstly, the discussion centres on student characteristics in the culture of the knowledge society, and then examines the efficacy of textbooks. Sophisticated Individualised Data Delivery Systems (SIDDS) (Knight 2015) are then introduced as the new “textbooks” to utilise the benefits of digital learning resources. The chapter will describe principles underpinning a learner-centred design framework as aspects to consider when designing learning experiences for diverse learners in textbooks incorporating new media formats (Fasso, Knight & Knight 2013).
