Welcome to Digi-Books – the learning method of choice for our generation.
Why Choose a Digi-Book?
Digi-books is a hybrid digital book publishing format that is adapted to digital learners. “I love to learn but I do not like to read,” is a common statement heard among students in higher education.
In fact, research shows that in the last nine years, students went from 42% to 62% preferring oral learning over print learning.
Digi-books was developed to address the changing learning preference of digital learners so that students will purchase and read this new book format. Utilizing a hybrid publishing format that is attractive to 21st century learners, this publishing approach addresses the problem of declining book sales.
- Learn at your own pace: dive deep into a chapter, or read a book quickly.
- Videos, images, and other content to make reading engaging and enjoyable.
- Interactive discussion with the author and other students.

What is the process to produce a Digi-Book?
Due to Dr. Moon’s inside contacts with authors and students, he will identify authors, and train them in the design of a digi-book. The typical book will contain ten chapters, requiring ten summary videos and manuscripts. The book manuscript must be copyedited prior to submission. If assistance is needed, Digi-books will contract this out and charge the author.
Dr. Moon can animate and train the authors for the authors send a completed manuscript with videos to Josh who then edits them for a digit-oral audience. The editing requires inserting images and perhaps other features (e.g., motion graphics, infographics). Roman then converts the manuscript to an e-publishing format and integrates the pieces in order to produce the digi-book.
