Create e-textbooks with Dbook’s New Version

Two years ago, I have mentioned a promising software called Dbook, a mathematics software developed by the Center for Research for International Cooperation in Education Develoment (CRICED) of the University of Tsukuba in Japan. Dbook lets you create interactive electronic textbooks from scanned images or those which were created in word processors and desktop publishing software. Recently, Dbook’s new version was finished, although I am not sure if the software had been released online.  However, to know the capabilities of Dbook, here are some tutorials on Youtube by Prof. Masami Isoda of CRICED.

For more information about the Dbook (older version), you may want to visit the official website.

You know about ebooks, but have you heard of dbook?

Two years ago, I attended a lecture of Professor Masami Isoda about dbook, a flash-based software developed by CRICED at the University of Tsukuba in Japan used for creating interactive digital textbooks.  The usual practice in dbook is taking a picture (or scanning) of book pages and embedding ready-made tools to construct an interactive worksheets.

The mathematics electronic whiteboard that I have posted here was an empty file of dbook. If you want to know more about dbook, and download the software, click here.

I will make a tutorial about dbook soon, so keep posted.
