MindTouch recently sponsored a webinar entitled “Creating eBooks: Understanding the Opportunities, Challenges, Devices, and Standards”, hosted by Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler. The event, attended by nearly 500 content professionals, featured interviews with digital publishing strategists Ann Rockley and Charles Cooper of The Rockley Group and eBook publishing expert Eric Freese of Aptara. There were so many questions posed by attendees that we were unable to answer them all during the live event. So, we asked the guests to answer the questions in writing.

The recording and Q&A are now available below. Enjoy!
