This advanced course is for those who have written materials that they wish to turn into a published book, either for personal use or to sell on commercial platforms. We’ll look primarily at creating ebooks, but will also discuss print-on-demand paperbacks.

The content is up to you—it could be lesson plans, exercises for students, essays and reflections, research results, or whatever strikes your fancy! Not every work will be something suitable to sell, but you’ll learn the entire process, from considering an audience/market your work, formatting .epub and .mobi files, working with images and audio, creating a cover, determining where to publish, setting prices, and marketing.

This is more than just a “how to”—it’s the actual doing.

Because of the intensive nature of the work involved, we’re asking that participants have their material either finished or close to completion (or to work on just one chapter or section or a longer work), as there is not time in the month to both write a book and publish a book.

Due to the hands on nature of this course, we will only offer two levels of certification.

Certificate of Distinction
US $169 – If you want to seriously pursue commercial marketing and selling of your completed ebook, register for the Certificate of Distinction. In addition to the feedback provided to all participants during the course, Dorothy will provide more advanced and targeted critiques and advice for teachers working toward this certificate. Distinction participants can contact Dorothy for a year beyond the close of the course. You can decide after completing the month-long course whether you want to upgrade to this category.

Certificate of Accomplishment
US $99 – If you want to learn how to create great ebooks for your colleagues and students, register for the Certificate of Accomplishment.

Live online sessions will be held in the iTDi virtual classroom in July. Live sessions will happen at 03:00 GMT, which will be Saturday in the Americas, and Sunday in Asia.

If the time for the live sessions doesn’t work well for your time zone, don’t worry! We record everything, and most of the work will take place in our online community (which is always open) so you can easily participate even if you can’t join the Saturday/Sunday live sessions
