Description

Would you like to make reading more accessible for all of your learners? Consider publishing your own EPUB books or documents. This flexible format supports the customization needed to meet the needs of today's diverse readers. With EPUB, learners can adjust the text size and depending on the reader application, choose different fonts, change background colors, and more. In this session, you will explore some of the advantages of publishing to the EPUB format, how to read EPUB  with a number of free tools and how to get started creating your own EPUB publications.
