Excellent presentation! Would have enjoyed a tutorial of each of the three ebook builders mentioned by Vanessa. Most courses/webinars tend to focus on Mac/iPad platforms, more elaboration on PC/Windows would be greatly appreciated! :)

Making an ebook had seemed so overwhelming until I watched this! So many helpful ways to organize material already in use.

I enjoyed the webinar on creating e-books. I especially like the idea for making an ebook of my class syllabus and information for each class to be packaged up. I haven't created e-books and think that I would like to try and appreciate the information given in this presentation. Thanks!

The presenter went through the proper order of how to develop an ebook. She also gave a few suggestions about what to do with ebooks, such as using it as a holder for all of her class articles, setting it up interactively for a class, or publishing your own textbook through it. However, she only focused on one ebook maker for ipads, while ignore the whole process of ebook publishing. the little bit I do know of ebook publishing makes it a lot harder than what she made it sound like. Also, she did not look at any of the effects of publishing an ebook to, say, itunes. Finally, her tool did not actually make it look that easy compared to what I have done with just pages. (In fact, Pages was easier, especially for the initial start.) I watched this webinar because I wanted to get ideas about how to use ebooks in my classroom and with my students but neither of those goals were accomplished through this presentation.
