Defining ePublishing – ePublishing training?
ePublishing could be broken into three basic seperate areas. ePub is one and comes tucked away inside Adobe InDesign. It is in actual fact is a very simple format that displays documents (ebooks being a great example) on electronic devices such as Kindles, android phones, iPads etc. The text flows continually and you can format it by typeface, colour etc but page breaks for example are controlled by the ebook reader which defines the epub file display and orientation. Images, of course appear in the flowing text and iBooks for example allow video. Links and Table of Contents are also used but the design of epubs is a simple one.
Another ePublishing option is Adobe .PDF which is well established and known to all universal applications and .PDF readers. .PDF’s allow you the freedom to insert movies, audio and animation files into .PDF ePublishing documents but .PDF is a relatively linear approach.
The third option is rich media and the one that most people picture when the word ePublishing crops up. Rich media documents are those with the fancy swipes and scrolling effects…………..stunning on ebooks and emagazines. These tend to consist of a series of HTML elements or documents (InDesign) and then brought together as one document.
We provide ePublishing training in all the formats mentioned above and are happy to mix and match different elements and to discuss exactly what your needs are and what is the best ePublishing training approach to take.
