Interactive eBook Apps: The Reinvention of Reading and Interactivity | UX Magazine - 4 views

  • apps are mostly native iOS or Android software
  • eBooks are documents of a particular format, such as the open standards EPUB and Mobipocket (.mobi)
  • eBooks can be further distinguished from “enhanced eBooks,” which use formats such as ePUB3 for iBooks (Apple) and Kindle Format 8 (KF8) for Kindle Fire (Amazon)
  • ...9 more annotations...
  • eBooks
  • have very limited interactivity
  • Enhanced eBooks (ePUB3) are a new digital publication standard that allows easy integration of video, audio, and interactivity.
  • Interactive eBooks is a category for apps designed specifically to utilize the powers of tablets to enable users to interact with the storyline in sight, sound, and touch.
  • On a touch device, interactivity is the ability to engage with the user interface, including the ways you move your fingers on the screen, the way you to select an app, or how you browse the Web.
  • If a book app does not use interactivity in order to enhance the reading experience, it does not belong in the interactive eBook category.
    • Jeremy Brueck
      I think this is an important clarification. From an educators standpoint, we want interactivity to enhance comprehension and help students understand what the story is about.
  • Although these activities through the 52 pages of the book are fun, I think they distract from the actual story.
  • It is possible for interactivity to go beyond the superficial, to add value to the book and create an experience that would be impossible in print.
  • they are about adding value through interactivity by using the full capabilities of a touch device to engage the user and enhance the learning and reading experience. These engaging experiences are what I call a true reinvention of reading.
