Web 2.0 e-Publishing Tools: A Quick Guide

Web 2.0 Tools in Education Series
E-Publishing Tools: A Quick Guide

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a resource that explained, in detail, everything you needed to know about e-publishing: what tools were available, how to sign up, getting started, etc.?

There are a lot of great publishing tools out there today, and many can save you a lot of time.  Publishing electronically can be easy and affordable for teachers and students alike, and there is a certain level of accomplishment that a student will feel when they see their works published.

Personally, I'm an avid user of many different platforms for e-publishing.  Whether looking for a place to share your own ideas, or providing a place for your students to safely share theirs, there is a growing market of e-Publishing tools that can help.  On some of these tools we might have varying levels of expertise, but even with some experience I still find on occasion that I may need to use a function that I am a novice at, or will get stuck.  No need to panic - I've got my trusty Web 2.0 quick guide, which can help me sort out the new tool in a snap.
