The focus of my work involves taking products that are in one format and giving them a more compelling look for Kindle. Alongside a small group of clever students in LIT-Clonmel, I'm using Adobe InDesign, Calibre, Acrobat Pro and several web services. The most important deliverable I've set in the audio clip below concerns the business intelligence of e-publishing. I want students to tell me the business value of the processes we will master during the next three months. It doesn't make sense to learn a skillset that has no appreciable value for management. Through a series of set pieces, I want these talented students to produce business and commercial value through e-ink. I've eight main areas that I believe merit practical academic exploration.
Here are the eight main focal points of the e-publishing module at LIT-Clonmel:
1. Business Intelligence Framework.
2. Collaborative Skills.
3. Graphic Design Skills.
4. Web Service Skills.
5. Acrobat Pro Skills.
6. Kindle Publishing Skills.
7. Adobe InDesign Skills.
8. Journaling Skills.
I expect to see and hear direct feedback from students as we progress into an exciting field of study. And I expect to get affirmation about the importance of e-publishing from people who read my blogs.
