Simplebooklet is a free web-based app which allows you to convert your existing PDFs into a flippable browser-based format, or to create brand new ones from scratch by leveraging a nice set of professional ready-made templates.


Simplebooklet makes it easy to integrate text, images, video clips, audio tracks, geometric shapes, clipart and a number of call-to-action modules for selling, subscribing, and other lead generation actions.


The final publication looks like a web magazine with flippable pages and with useful buttons to see all pages thumbnails, to share on social media or to download bonus files.

Your finalized multimedia booklet can be published on Simplebooklet, shared on social media and embedded on any site.


A PRO version costing $36/year allows for creating up to 50 booklets, for uploading PDFs as large as 100MB and for integrating downloadable files as well as call-to-action modules such as email me, buy this or subscription forms.


My comment: Quite useful to convert PDFs into flipboard style web-magazines which are and will increasingly be the new of reading on the web. Excellent integrated-design features make it possible also to create flippable multimedia booklets from scratch that will have a professional-look no matter your level of design expertise. Worth trying. Still in beta and buggy.

El arte de curar información en la Web es más que una práctica del conectivismo, es parte de un ejercicio de aprendizaje e inteligencia colectiva.
John Thomas's curator insight, February 12, 5:20 AM

Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has just published an article that provides some very useful guidelines to content marketers interested in improving their basic content curation skills.

 

The article provides six alternative approaches to curating content, from simple ones like quoting and retitling, to more advanced ones like parallelizing, storyboarding and summarizing.

 

The context provided in this article circles around three key factors:

Quantity of effortSEO valueAdded value

so that you can compare, among the alternative curation approaches presented, the ones that better match your own needs.

 

But, beware. Though content marketing experts have you believe that saving time, seo impact and traffic size are key variables to go after, I remain of the impression that true "added value" provides order of magnitude greater benefits than the other two combined. 

 

In other words, to rank and evaluate the value of a curation approach versus another, I would ask: Does the curation produced help other people make better sense of a topic? Does it allow for others to learn about an issue without having to juggle and research tens of dubious resources? Does it save the reader time in learning about the topic he's interested in while providing him with all the needed info?

 

Having said this, I deem this article particularly useful for content marketers getting interested in content curation, and in learning which approaches they can adopt, besides reposting and sharing the best content they can find, to improve their "value added" propositions.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

9 Apps for Creating Multimedia Content

9 Apps for Creating Multimedia Content | Entrepreneurial Passion | Scoop.it

Until a few years ago designing an attractive presentation, or any other form of multimedia content, required expert designers. You first had to explain your idea to the designer who would then spend hours in isolation, using complex tools and software, to turn them into reality. Most of the times, however, you would still go away dissatisfied with the final product.

 

However, this is no more the case thanks to different online tools available freely on the internet. Using these tools,you can create multimedia content in a matter of minutes. You no longer need to explain your brains out to a designer who would still prefer following his own ideas. There’s also no need for any complex applications and prior designing knowledge.

Mike Margolies's curator insight, May 29, 2013 4:08 PM

This article provides an interesting perspective on practice. I will always caution people on the word practice of course. We have always taught that it's perfect practice which makes perfect. I have reconsidered this not just because of the research included in this paper, but because what we do to players in expecting them to practice perfectly. If we learn most effectively through our failures, how could perfect practice make us better. I think this may go to the basis of the research here. How our minds use the information from failure helps us perform at a higher level due to cognative memory function.
