Mobile is the new way of learning. Learners want it and companies want to provide it. However, app development can be expensive, especially if you are starting from a mostly print or standard eLearning model of training. Finding a way to give learners and organizations the mobile learning they want without breaking the bank is a must in today’s training market.

In this session, you will learn how EPUBs can be used as a low-cost solution for taking training content mobile. See how these digital books are able to support many of the same bells and whistles traditional eLearning interactions support. You will examine how digital books leverage the same inputs as traditional apps such as gestures, but cost a fraction to develop and maintain across multiple operating systems and devices. You’ll discover there is a slightly different design process required when building training for eBooks. And you will learn some great examples of how it’s done so you can try it yourself.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Which platforms and tools are available for digital publication use
  • The different audiences for each publishing platform and which best fits your audience
  • Real world strategies from companies that use digital book platforms as part of their mobile strategy
  • The do’s and don’ts of digital book publishing

Novice to advanced designers and developers.
