Why and How to Adapt and Publish Texts as Ebooks for Extensive Reading

Presented at First Extensive Reading World Congress, at Kyoto Sangyo University, 5 September 2011

Summary: Lost, unreturned, and damaged books are a significant problem for Extensive Reading programs. Ebooks are about to emerge as an affordable alternative library for ER that solves these problems. When educators or institutions publish ebooks, they can be copied, shared, and never need to be returned. This will be a practical presentation showing teachers how to create and distribute ebooks with stories they and their students wish to share and learn from. The main focus will be on adapting existing Open Content, but can also be applied to original writing projects.
