No, the most interesting aspect of e-books is not that you can walk around with a whole library in your pocket, that some claim is the most exclusive benefit, instead, it is the intuitive experience. The authors of The Horizon Report 2011 Edition write:
“The most interesting aspect of electronic books, however, is not the devices they are accessed with; it is not even the texts themselves. What makes electronic books a potentially transformative technology are the new kinds of reading experiences that they can make possible. Publishers are beginning to explore richly visual interfaces that include multimedia and collaborative elements.”
From this prerequisite, a successful e-book is not only interesting reading but a learning experience. In this concern, some of the e-book-format is too static. The tendency is that it becomes too much book on a jar and too little take advantage of the possibilities with technology. That is some of the reasons we developed Storyteller on eLearningworld where you without any experience of coding can produce interaQtive books, learn more here. At the moment, our Storyteller on Demand is available where we develop your interaQtive book from your manuscript, soon also Storyteller LearningLab and Storyteller MakeIT will be launched.
