E-books and E-content 2012

Ebooks 2012 will explore the questions behind the increasing uptake of econtent to support learning and through a mix of experts, educationalists and others with an interest in the topic. It will be of keen interest to librarians trying to understand their role in the processes which apply to learning support staff, to learning technologists who need a better understanding of econtent and how it can be deployed and academics interested in what undoubtedly will be a key component in the future education.

The final programme will include keynotes from Leslie Lees, Vice President of Content Development Ebrary and David Ball Head of Academic Development Services at Bournemouth University, whilst Jill Taylor-Rowe of the University of Newcastle, Avtar Natt of BPP University College of Professional Studies and Anne Worden of Portsmouth University will present case studies of their respective institutions. Publisher input will come from the European Director of innovative e-textbook supplier Coursesmart and Alan Nelson of elearning developer Nelson-Croom. Other agreed speakers include Graham Bell of EDItEUR who will address the new Epub 3 format and its applicability (or not) to elearning and multimedia and Kate Worlock of publishing consultants Outsell who will detail the emerging etextbook scene.
