Topic: Creating a Custom Book for Your Course

Speaker: Jennifer Bellot, PhD, RN, MHSA

Dr. Bellot used AcademicPub to create a custom ebook for her course. Students were able to purchase the ebook edition for use on their iPads or chose to have a print copy made and mailed to them.  AcademicPub makes it easy to incorporate your syllabus, presentations, a collection of content from different text books and journal articles into a single book for your course.  Dr. Bellot will describe the process, compare it to past practices and report on student satisfaction with this new format for course materials.

Update 3/28/13: The slides from this presentation have been posted in the Jefferson Digital Commons.
