Apple has begun to send invitations to members of the press for a media event in New York City on Thursday, January 19. The announcement is being described as an "education event" and will take place at the Guggenheim Museum at 10am Eastern Time.

No further details were revealed in the invitation, but recent rumors have pointed to Apple planning some education-themed changes to its iBooks platform. Our own sources indicated the announcement could involve support for the EPUB 3 standard, enabling a wider variety of multimedia and interaction features that are useful in a teaching environment. One source in particular suggested that Apple may make some changes to iBooks that are directed specifically toward the academic set.

No hardware-related announcements are expected for this event, though in true Apple fashion, few details are available as to what might actually be announced next Thursday.
