Sample eBooks and Applications

Presentation (.htm)

Sample eBooks (in MS Reader's .lit format) showing the variety of applications that eBooks could be applied to:

Presentation: This presentation on eBooks used the eBook as the presentation interface, instead of presentation software, such as PowerPoint.

Here are two articles/papers that I wrote and converted Article 1: eBooks for Education, and Article 2: The Need for Assistive Technology in Educational Technology.  Having them as eBooks allows me to easily carry them with me in my handheld.

Notes: The eBook I made to help me teach one of my classes about ESOL strategies.  I converted my class notes, from MS Word to MS Reader and used my handheld while teaching.

Activity: SodaBottle Hydrology: This eBook is an Earth Science activity book that I wrote for the Department of Energy.  Here I changed its format to an eBook for ease of use and sharing with others.

Other eBooks (.lit) I've made or converted
