Ebook 202.3: ePUB – Enhancements, Limitations, and Prognostications
Wednesday, November 24th @ 1pm ET
(On-demand after)

The rapidly-changing ebook market has led to some interesting advancements in the way the ePUB format has been adapted by different retailers, especially Apple. While ePUB3 is still in development, and these adaptations are not always in compliance with the current ePUB standard, they do offer compelling enhancement capabilities to content creators.

This WEBcast will look at how these enhancements are coded, talk about the breadth of their adoption, and give you practical advice on how to best approach implementing them into your own content and workflow. It will also briefly cover the basics of ePUB development, with tips for making your eBooks look and function great in all of the major ePUB devices.

Amazon has been busy over the last few years, building a well-rounded ebook ecosystem that, by most accounts, controls the majority of ebook sales.

We will show you how enhancements like video and audio can be added to Kindle ebooks, and we’ll talk about the differences in formatting found across the various Kindle devices and software applications. We will also give you a brief overview of the basic steps in Kindle eBook development.

    I purchased these webinars on 11/23/10 but have been unable to view two of them. I sent three emails beginning on 12/2 and one phone call over a week ago to the number on my order confirmation. The rep I spoke to said she was also unable to access them and would call me back.

    She has not called back, and I’ve received no reply to my emails.

    The order confirmation said to visit your online Customer Service FAQs but did not provide a link. I did a search on your site for that term, but guess what? No such item exists.

    Given this experience, I would never consider attending a DBW conference.
