Abstract

The Digital Campus is upon us. Most students own tablets or other smart devices. These students are clamoring for class materials and textbooks to be made available on these devices at a reasonable price. As a result, e-books are gaining traction each day. This presentation will put attendees on the path to becoming e-book publishers who generate and distribute instructor- and student-developed content. The session will introduce attendees to the e-book publishing process and associated e-book publishing tools so that they can publish their own e-textbooks, e-notes, e-projects and commercial nonfiction. The session will specifically address the benefits and challenges of using iBooks Author for publishing content on the iPad.
