I love working with all things related to IT - websites, e-learning, e-books, etc.... I used to be a Lecturer at the School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology (DMIT). I no longer teach students directly face to face, so Udemy is the next best choice.
Take your courses with you and learn anytime, anywhere.
Learn and practice real-world skills and achieve your goals.
This course is a quick step by step instructional guide to using Sigil and iBooks Author in order to produce ebooks in both the ePub format as well as the popular iBooks format.
Sigil can be downloaded at https://code.google.com/p/sigil/
The details of iBooks Author can be found at http://www.apple.com/ibooks-author/
This course is meant to be a quick start guide to creating eBooks with these two software. You will quickly learn how to create different chapters in your eBook, generate Table of Contents, insert Text and Images and later on Video and Audio. Also covered are how to create a Cover Page and adding both Internal and External Hyperlinks to your eBook.
Note that I am not covering the publishing aspects of eBooks. But perhaps this topic can be added in the future.
The course is great for learning the foundations of creating you're book. This course should differently be your first learning you should do.
This course helped me to publish a book to Kobo and iTunes using the Sigil section. I'm still waiting on iTunes for approval, but all appears to be going smoothly. Thanks!
It's worth the time spent watching it as Chris takes you through the basic quite patiently.
Christopher Tan presents a continual flow of required information to get "up & running" with iBook Author & Sigil throughout the course. Just how I like it downloading into my brain. Thanks Chris.
A series of well organised, comprehensive, concised lectures easy to follow. Learning to create an Ebook can be so unimaginably easy with Christopher!
