DOWNLOAD THE NEW PAPER ON PUBLISHING AND E-LEARNING
This text is focused on the new relation between e-learning and publishing because both activities work on content and these two worlds can be complementary.
Each day there are experiences, where publishers have decided to differentiate their market by opening up to learning solutions or dissemination of content through platforms or methodology belonging to the world of e-learning.
Salvatore Nascarella is an expert on both fields and in this paper he describes how the boundaries between what is digital book and what is a on line course over time have disolved:
‘E-learning is, or can become, a channel for the promotion and sale of publishing contents, a way to regenerate them, to give them a second life, return to disseminate them and to analyze them with a view to future production choices or to generate content from below. To underline the fact that this phenomenon does not only affect books for school and scientific issues, but extends to any content that can expand knowledge and skills even non-professional.’
Nascarella has almost 20 years of experience in publishing and training companies, with particular attention to digital penetration, online learning processes (e-learning, gamification, edutainment), and content curation. He shaped his editorial skills, adapting them to the world of professional education. The author of this paper deals with instructional design and training management for large companies with the aim not only to create training courses, but to make them live. Nascarella is also an active collaborator of Renodo project and a participant in Readmagine meetings.
