The service to create eBooks was used by teachers from various disciplines such as Chinese Medicine, Law, Physiology, and Biochemistry. The project created at least seventy eBooks for teachers of a group of about twenty. Some of these eBooks were full-length reference materials such as medical dictionaries/ glossaries, while some were simply teachers’ notes.
The screen captures below show the eBook we have recently completed for Dr Sam Poon in the Department of Biomedical Sciences. The eBook has a rich collection of embedded images and videos beside the text that elaborate on them. The eBook, in the ePUB format which makes it accessible in multiple platforms, is loaded onto students’ mobile devices as convenient off-line learning resources. When the devices are connected to the internet, the links on the eBook lead students to even more resources on the internet.
