Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
For many years pundits have predicted the demise of the traditional paper book, but the transition to e-books has been far slower than these prophets have foretold. However, recent years have seen a proliferation in the availability specialized e-book readers such as the Kindle, Nook and Sony as well as an exponential increase in sales. This course is designed to introduce the reader to the available e-book platforms, the technologies that underlie them and the future trends in this field. In addition, there is an introduction to the very user friendly tools for self-publishing e-books that may represent an attractive business opportunity for engineers, architects and land surveyors.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
