The reader can enjoy the experience of great literature as well as TTC-crafted lectures. ? If The Great Courses plan to create another text-based book, I strongly recommend looking into creating an Ebook with embedded video and music. However, with an Ebook you can market the book both by tour and virally. You can create new marketing venues and instantly reach a much broader audience. This product line would focus solely on books by cadre professors and their courses. So what has the benefits of a book as well interactive examples? wsj There is a tremendous surge from authors and publishers to create Ebooks with video and music. "David Rosenthal, the publisher of Simon & Schuster, says that his company is racing “to embed audio and video and other value-added features in e-books."

Transcript: EBOOK eBook (or e-book) is short for "electronic book." It is a digital publication that can be read on a computer, e-reader, or other electronic device. eBooks are available in several different file formats. Some are open formats that can be read on multiple devices, while others are proprietary and can only be viewed on a specific device, such as an iPad or Kindle. While there are many types of eBook formats, all major ones support text, images, chapters, and page markers. Most formats also support user annotations, such as highlighted text, drawings, and notes. Commercially available publications often include some kind of digital rights management (DRM) that prevent the content from being viewed on unauthorized devices. For example, many books available through Amazon's Kindle Store and Apple's iBookstore are copy-protected using DRM protection. Some e-readers allow you to share your annotations with others online and view what text other readers have highlighted or commented on. For example, the Sony Reader includes a handwriting feature that allows you to underline specific text on a page. The Amazon Kindle includes a highlighter pen used for highlighting text. NOTE: An eBook may be a novel, magazine, newspaper, or other publication. However, the electronic versions of magazines and newspapers are often called "digital editions" to differentiate them from electronic books. View a comprehensive list of eBook formats.
