Description

Would you like to make reading more available to all readers, regardless of their learning preferences? In part one of this three-part webinar series, you will get to know EPUB (aka “electronic publication”), a format for creating accessible, customizable, and adaptable publications and documents (from textbooks to student-created stories) that is quickly becoming the industry standard for digital publishing. This webinar will address basic questions about EPUB: what it is, how it benefits learners, and where you can find high-quality EPUB titles so you can begin exploring the personalized reading experience they provide. With this information as a foundation, you and your team will be ready to delve into the use and creation of EPUB in more detail in the remaining two webinars of the series. If you have a chance before the webinar, please review the introduction to Getting Started with EPUB on the AEM Center website for helpful background information.
