Abstract

In this study, it is aimed to minimize the labor and time spent during the updating of e-content and re-uploading them into learning management systems, which is one of the present e-learning problems. For this purpose, a new e-book template has been designed. Transferring content into e-book consists of two important steps. Firstly, the contents prepared in MS Word program are transformed into XML. Later, the contents transformed into XML are read by e-book template. EBONI design principles have been highly obeyed during the design of the template. Some of the EBONI design principles used in the e-book template are book cover, contents, short page contents, legible writing format, multimedia and interactive items that may activate users. Thanks to these, an e-learning environment that is visually rich, easy to understand and follow with flexible contents has been attempted to create.
