About the Course

This course focuses on how to finish an EPUB document created in Adobe InDesign. While the latest version of InDesign is a great tool for creating EPUB e-books, there are still some aspects of EPUB creation that cannot be done in InDesign. To fine tune an EPUB and make it look and work exactly as needed, it is necessary to edit that EPUB using text-editing software. This course covers the skills needed to create a well crafted and valid EPUB e-book.
