publishthis.email - Create a web page in seconds, by sending an email. | technologies | Scoop.it
The quickest way to create a web page. No account or sign up needed. Send us an email with your content to publish online, and we'll reply instantly with a link to your new web page.
John Dalziel's insight:
PublishThis.email is the latest in a string of relatively new services offering a quick and easy way for practitioners, and/or Learners, to publish their writing on-line. 
PublishThis.email lets users create simple webpages by just sending an email to page@publishthis.email. 
The email that they send, to that address, will be turned into a webpage in a matter of seconds. 
They will be emailed a link to their new page. 
In PublishThis.email pages users can include text and images, but video isn't supported. 
NOTE: The PublishThis.email service does have some drawbacks... 
  - users can delete their page but they cannot edit their page once it is published; 
  - anything that appears in a users email signature will be published - e.g. if an email signature includes the users phone number, they'll need to delete their signature before sending an email to PublishThis.email. 
Ideal for... 
  - creating a web page 
  - publishing lists 
  - sharing newsletters 
...and much more.

Book Creator - the simple way to create beautiful ebooks

Book Creator - the simple way to create beautiful ebooks | technologies | Scoop.it
Book Creator is a simple EdTech tool to create ebooks on iPad, Android and Windows tablets. Create a book and publish it to Apple's iBooks Store.
John Dalziel's insight:
With Book Creator 5.1 users can now publish their books and make them available on the web. 
Practitioners can also share their learners’ work with... 
  - specific people and/or 
  - a global audience and/or 
  - embed books into course blogs or learning provider's website 
Just... 
  - tap the export icon beneath your book, and instead of choosing ePub, PDF or video, choose ‘Publish on-line’. 
NOTE: The first time you do this, you’ll be prompted to create a "Teacher account", which you can do with your email address or with an existing Google account. 
All modern browsers are supported on laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile. 
What about privacy? 
Learners cannot publish their own books. It will always be the teacher using their own account that chooses whether or not a book can be shared on-line. 
Once published, books are not publicly searchable on Google or other search engines. 
Books can only be accessed using their private link. It’s up to practitioners to decide how and with whom they share the link. 
What about cost? 
For starters, "every teacher can publish 10 books for free" Ideal for writing courses and more. 
Has to be worth a closer look...

How To Make Your Own eBooks And Publish Them On Amazon

How To Make Your Own eBooks And Publish Them On Amazon | technologies | Scoop.it

Ever wondered if it would be possible to make money from the worksheets / resources / etc., you've created?

 

I’m sure that more than a few practitioners have a half-written book or useful guide that they’ve put together, to help their students learn something.

 

Selling it as an eBook on Amazon would, at least, gain some exposure.

The process of getting it into Amazon as an eBook isn’t that onerous.
