via email from the Kindle, Nook (and more!) Educators Group

Hi everybody,

Our next webinar will be held next Tuesday, Dec. 7, and we are trying it a little bit earlier, at 7:00 pm EST. You can register (as usual) righthere.

The topic this time will be Ebook File Formats and How They Affect You. Surprisingly, the choice of an ereader for your school may have more to do with the file formats that the device supports than about other bells and whistles the device offers. In addition, the underlying software that runs your ereader determines functionality in many cases as well.

We will cover all the major file formats and the devices that support them, looking at their limitations and advantages. We will link the format discussion to ereader software and to the devices themselves. Consider it a primer on the “software” side of the ereading experience.

I will try to keep it as un-geeky as possible…;-) The presentation will run for about 20 minutes and I will answer questions for 15 minutes or so. Maximum time commitment: 45 minutes.

There will be a drawing for door prizes for anyone in attendance from the Ning. The only stipulation is that you must have uploaded a profile photo at the Ning and be present at the webinar in order to win!

Hope to see you at the webinar next Tuesday, December 7 at 7:00 pm EST!
