Evaluation

Introduction

This report outlines my digital product of the ebook to make a story about Andrew Carnegie and George Lauder, I change the story about the battle of Waterloo based in Napoleonic Wars at 1803 – 1815.

Strengths

I good at with history of war, I had learn about the plans, tactic, deploying the soldiers, who’s the commanders and leaders of the army, why they started the war, what’s the name of battle, location of battle, timeline, causalities and everything of their path. It is my interest to learn what they planning to do to declare war against their enemies. I able to do some research to find information and images of painting of the Battle of Waterloo.

Weaknesses

I had a quite bit difficult to find a make a theme about Andrew Carnegie and George Lauder, but it didn’t work out and I won’t able to do it, so I change the story something else.

E-book

Define E-book?

An electronic book is a text- and image-based publication in digital form produced on, published by, and readable on computers or other digital devices.

How do you read it?
Reading eBooks is your resource for finding readable books for download from the internet, and the hardware and software needed to read them.

What different formats are there?

E-readers come in different formats and the technology is still evolving.

The .epub or OEBPS format is an open standard for e-books created by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF).
The EPUB format has gained some popularity as a vendor-independent XML-based e-book format. The format can be read by the Kobo eReader, Blackberry Playbook, Apple’s iBooks app running on iOS devices such as the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony Reader, BeBook, Bookeen Cybook Gen3 (with firmware v. 2 and up), COOL-ER, Adobe Digital Editions, Lexcycle Stanza, BookGlutton, AZARDI, FBReader, Aldiko, Moon+ Reader and WordPlayer on Android, the Mozilla Firefox add-on EPUBReader, and Okular. Several other desktop reader software programs are currently implementing support for the format, such as dotReader, Mobipocket, uBook.

How do you create one?
Making an eBook for portable devices is not necessarily as easy as it first might sound. There is more to it than just running an automatic converter to the format you need. The main effort is to first get the electronic document into a reasonable eBook form. The article describes a method used to create the eBooks.
