Hi everyone…Let me start this entry by giving a definition of the word “e-book” . E-book (short for electronic book,or EBook), also known as a digital book, is an e-text that forms the digital media equivalent of a conventional printed book, sometimes restricted with a digital rights management system. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBook,2011)
Okey, now we know what is ebook and for this entry I will share my original ebook (done during last semester) and also the modification version of it. This modification is based on what me and my friends learn this week which how to make the ebook appealed to the students.
The title of my ebook is “Abu eats too much”. This is a story about a boy who ate lots of food until his stomach went ache. He went to the clinic and the doctor advised him not to eat too much next time . He regretted what he had done and promised not to do that again.
This is the original front page of my ebook..(quite dull isn’t it)..so I reform it to be like this….tadddaaaaa~~~
so..how do you think? errkk…I think its also dull….hu3..nevermind….Anyway..I edited this front page by changing the font. I replace the the word “Abu” with fruit alphabets in order to relate it with the story which is regarding to food. I also increase the size of the font and picture to make it clearer to the reader. Plus, I change the background colour just to make sure that the colour wont distract my actually focus which is the title of the story.
I also increased the size font for the content and the yellow background colour into white. This is to make sure that the readers can see the sentences clearly and the background colour will not distract my main focus which is the story line.
This is the original slide:
Ohh..one more thing..I also add dialogue box to make it interesting…urrmm..interesting? i guess so..huuu~~
Below is another examples where I increase the size of the images:
Furthermore, I also add some constructive question that can trigger the students mind.
So, thats all about the modification. Hopefully the edited version will not only be attractive but also effective to their language learning. Doing all the modifications made me realize that there are certain aspects that I need to consider before creating and designing the ebook. This will absolutely effect the readers and the effectiveness of the book.
Thats all for this week…feel free to give comment…..daaa~~~
