Embedded indexing involves more complex communication with your client to ensure that the project goes well. With file management, font choices, and project schedules to understand, it is important to establish good communication. Your clients may not understand what embedding involves, and it is often up to you to educate them. In this session, we will cover critical questions to ask and issues that should be settled before you start work. In addition, you will receive links to documents for InDesign and Word embedding that you can adapt for your clients, helping them to take care of their indexes once you have handed off the files. https://bit.ly/2zaVZko
People often complain that English is deteriorating under the influence of new technology, adolescent fads and loose grammar. Why does this nonsensical belief persist?

Macmillan Education Schools Division has decided to review its local operations in Australia with the intention of withdrawing from the Australian market in due course.
Following a review of the Macmillan Education global curriculum portfolio, we have decided to focus on markets where Macmillan Education has a strong competitive position or expects sustainable future growth, such as Argentina, Caribbean, India, Mexico, and Southern Africa.
Unfortunately, this is not the case in the Australian K-12 market, which has shown continuous decline in recent years. Despite the commitment and talent of the local team, Macmillan Education has not been able to operate in a sustainable way. As a result, we will be working with staff, authors, customers and other stakeholders to manage our withdrawal from this market.
Macmillan Education K-12 books are used in schools throughout Australia and Macmillan Education will be reaching out to customers to discuss existing agreements and ongoing support to ensure they can continue to use the products they have purchased and that any impact on students is minimised.
Macmillan Education Schools Division works with some of the best Australian authors to create its publishing portfolio and we will be working with our authors to agree future arrangements and solutions.
Macmillan Education is a part of global publisher Springer Nature. This decision does not affect Macmillan International Higher Education (MIHE), Macmillan’s English Language Teaching (ELT) businesses or any other Springer Nature companies operating in the ANZ markets.

Class Central is looking for a sharp taxonomist to help build a classification system that can scale to the entire online education space. Our data shows that people prefer browsing for online education experiences , rather than searching for them. Your job would be to create a taxonomy, covering courses, microcredentials, and online degrees, that can provide a delightful user experience and help learners discover the education opportunities that meet their needs.
Class Central is a big believer in Open Source, and the taxonomy you build will eventually be open sourced. If you think you can help us and are excited to take on the challenge of mapping out the entire online education space, we would love to talk to you.
