Would you like to make reading more accessible for all of your learners? Consider publishing your own EPUB books or documents. This flexible format supports the customization needed to meet the needs of today's diverse readers. With EPUB, learners can adjust the text size and depending on the reader application, choose different fonts, change background colors, and more. In this session, you will explore some of the advantages of publishing to the EPUB format. You will then learn about the different types of EPUB documents you can create, when to use them, and how to get started creating your own EPUB books and documents using a number of free and low-cost tools.
