Webinar: Interactive E-Books

E-Books are most probably the easiest way to get started with mobile learning. For conventional texts, it is as easy to create an e-book as generating PDF file. However, e-books are not just an alternative format for print material, but offer greater flexibility towards interactive and rich-media content than traditional publishing channels. While there are some interactive e-books on the market, it is much trickyer to create them, because one needs to understand the capabilities of e-books and how they are supported on the different platforms. 

Today, Nathalie Roth from SWITCH/eduhub announced my Webinar on "Interactive E-Books" on 11 Dec. 2014, 11:00-12:00 CET. The webinar will integrate some aspects that I learned in the course of the IEEE ADB, the PfP ADL WG, and of the SIG Mobile Learning discussions. While the webinar is primarily targeting audiences in Swiss Higher Education, the webinar is actually open to anybody. So if you are interested, see the full announcement and registration links below.

Here is Nathalie's full announcement coming via the EDUHUB mailing list:
