This chapter investigates a case of interdisciplinary pedagogical innovation for sustainability: digital textbooks in personal learning portfolios. In particular, its aim to provide a mean by which the metasystems learning design approach can be applied in sustainable development of user engaged in a powerful learning environment. Indeed, it is suggested that learning is a complex process within the learning environment and is composed of information/communication, cognitive activity and environmental assessment. The analysis of learning requires a complex investigation of the educational system based on understanding the inputs, outputs and process charactersitics and theirs trends. These can be done on the basis of interdisciplinary pedagogical innovation for sustainability. Such innovation could be achieved if learning outcomes will be designed according to core crossprinciples and their norms of application. The chapter is motivated by the fact that Google Drive provides a useful service for the metasystems learning design approach, allowing to store, personalise, peer review and access files anywhere. These results highlight how both core concepts and metasystems learning design principles need to be considered in tandem in order to create a powerful learning environment that will guarantee the learning outcomes.
