The Compostela Group of Universities promotes a course to learn how to layout, design and edit interactive digital books.  

The training catalogue of the Compostela Group of Universities (CGU) continues to expand with the incorporation of the online course Publish your book, which allows the network’s community to acquire the knowledge and skills required to create digital and printed publications independently.

Often teachers, researchers and students need to produce materials to disseminate their work and lack the necessary background to make them. Through this course, they can learn to design, layout and edit digital and printed publications. It runs monthly from February to July, and it is initially taught in Spanish, although depending on demand it may also be offered in English from March onwards.

During the training, the trainees progress autonomously with the video tutorials and work on the development of their projects, with the support of the trainer Adolfo Ramonde. Besides, they have the possibility of attending live-streaming classes with him, to set out their doubts and queries about the syllabus or the use of the editing programmes. Subsequently, the recordings of these interactive classes will be available to those who could not participate in the course’s microweb.

Regarding the evaluation, to complete the course, students must pass the online tests for each training module and complete the edition of a book. Passing this will entitle them to obtain the Diploma of the training and teaching innovation course “Design, layout and edition of an interactive digital book”, issued by the Compostela Group of Universities.

Those members of the CGU community interested in enrolling in the course can already do so via the online registration form. The registration fee is 200 euros and it includes taxes.
