I attended a talk given by Eric Schulz a few years ago. It was similar to his talk "Sharing Wisdom Gained from Publishing a CDF Ebook" given here. I am Math instructor and have been creating textbook-like CDF lectures in Mathematica for my students. I have absorbed quite a bit from his videos and am now able to reproduce a CDF textbook that looks and works like his.
I've created palettes to help aid in the creating process, autoinputreplacments to cut down on writing time, stylesheets to emulate textbooks, and different types of automation to push information to all notebooks, etc...
I'm interested in learning more from other people on best practices for e-text creation using Mathematica. Eric is a wealth of knowledge but is extremely busy working on his textbooks.
Does anyone know of any other resources they are willing to share that could aid a person creating a modern CDF etext? I know this is broad topic... however, I would not have known even where to start without the the multiple ideas given in the video above. I know there is still so much I don't know. Thanks.
