Technology in Curriculum - Higher Ed

I'm a math teacher at a junior college and am in the early stages of developing some curriculum for a lower level math course (prealgebra). In the "old" days, it would have been a textbook, but I believe that the days of paper texts are numbered. I'm trying to get a feel for what kinds of technology-based curricula people in HS and college have used, how much they've liked it, and how successful it's been. I'm not talking about a course based on a traditional textbook with a few videos or PowerPoints thrown in, but a curriculum where technology is foundational to the course content and is used on a daily or regular basis. It would be great to have students', teachers', and developers' points of view.

1. Are you a teacher, student, curriculum writer, software developer, or other?
2. What was the class/course? At what level (HS, undergrad - which year, graduate)?
3. What was the technology used, and how was it used in the course? For example online course, e-book, paper textbook with online homework and quizzes, video series, etc.
4. What devices and services did the user need to have access to (e.g., PC, e-reader, online access, software)?
5. What did you like/dislike about the technology? Did you like it better than using a traditional paper text?
6. How effective was the technology in your learning of the course content? Was it better/worse, and in what ways?
7. Do you think the technology will become outdated and need to be replaced more quickly than a traditional text (~5 years)?
8. Do you have any other comments and/or suggestions?

A supplemental question for teachers/mentors -- do you know of any conferences or resources that address this topic?

Lots of questions -- I'd be grateful to answers on any of them.
