Description: The eBook is an indispensable tool for teaching that is becoming increasingly commonplace. In this workshop we will present some concrete examples for the use of eBooks within the context of teaching and adult education. We will see how the eBook lends itself to teaching at a distance by removing physical constraints. We will also explore the different eBook formats while looking at their main features. Finally, we will provide an overview of the necessary resources for their creation and distribution, as well as digital rights management (DRM).
