Design & Development Of An Educational Interactive E-Book
MetadataShow full item record
ABSTRACT E-books available on the Internet are generally static, e.g. eBooks in pdf format. Web-based books like encyclopedias or e-magazines now include animation, video and audio clips. Facilities to use an eBook as part of a class exercise for class discussion, engaging or thinking questions, class activities are not generally available. The idea behind this project is to demonstrate initial design ideas on how an eBook can be used as part of class activities and exercises. The project is therefore titled “Design & Development of an Educational Interactive E-Book”. Publishers will be able to publish eBooks created by authors. Subsequently, teachers will be able to assign class work, discussions, thinking questions, comments on pictures, home work along with a method of marking. Teachers and students will be able to interact and complete the tasks assigned. Both teachers and students will be able to track their progress. So the eBook will essentially have four types of users – administrators, publishers, teachers and students. Administrators will allow publishers to register, publishers will allow teachers to use the eBook and students will be allowed by teachers to register to do complete a study plan on the eBook. It is believed that such facilities would help learning.
