eBook Creation: Advanced & Practical
Do you like to know what’s going on under the digital hood? Then this course is for you. Picking up where BIC’s ‘eBook Creation: Investigated & Explained’ training course ends, this course is a practical, hands-on look at the production of eBooks. It will investigate the different platforms, creation methods and workflows, plus their application and the pros and cons of each.
The course is aimed at those who are currently responsible for the production of eBooks and for those with a small amount of knowledge of CSS, InDesign (CS4 upwards) and XML.
All of our courses are designed in conjunction with a group of Production Directors from leading houses so that they focus on what you need to know. Each course contains a formal assessment recognised by many of the UK’s publishing houses.
To ensure that you get the most out of the day, we limit our groups to 10.
The course will provide you with the tools to brief suppliers well and to understand the overall mechanics of eBooks.
