Writing Electronic Books with Interactive Curricular Material
written by Mario Belloni, Wolfgang Christian, and Kristen Thompson
With the rise of tablets, such as the iPad, the past few years have seen an increase in the demand for quality electronic textbooks. Unfortunately most of the current offerings do not exploit the accessibility and interactivity that electronic books can deliver. For astronomy and physics electronic textbooks, support for typesetting of equations (MathML) and interactive simulations (JavaScript) are necessary. In this talk we will discuss how our curriculum development projects (Physlets, Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations, and Open Source Physics) are merging with the EPUB electronic book format. Specifically we will discuss the EPUB format and how we are taking an iterative approach to producing interactive electronic books for astronomy and physics.
