This course focuses on the theories, design strategies and distribution practices of multi-format digital publishing. Students will learn how to turn a text file into an HTML file, an epub file, a Kindle file, a pdf, and a printed book. Research will be guided by questions from class readings and discussions, as well as from student projects that prototype ideas or techniques. Class topics include media integration, design for multiple devices, reading interfaces, social networks, file formats, copyright, open-source, digital promotion, and hybrid (digital/print) workflows.
