EPUB is the successor to DAISY DTBooks, the accessible digital document format recommended in Rose et al.’s Universal Design for Learning. This hands-on workshop will help you become familiar with the creation and use of EPUB documents, and could be your first step towards preferring EPUBs (instead of PDFs or web texts) for the distribution of syllabi, class readings, and other course documents. This workshop follows along with an OER lesson plan that consists of four structured activities intended to teach basic concepts related to digital publishing, text accessibility, reflowable text, and e-book formats. You’ll learn simple strategies for using free resources to convert your Microsoft Word documents into accessible EPUB documents; templates will be provided for creating job aids, syllabi, and more!
This document walks through the steps of creating your first EPUB.
