The old boundary between producers and consumers of teaching materials is breaking down. For the first time, it’s possible for teachers to share – and be paid for – the content they have created without the need to go through traditional publishers. Writers no longer need to convince a publisher that there’s sufficient demand for a particular niche product; they can just go ahead and create it, to see what happens. This opens up a world of new possibilities, but also raises some important questions concerning quality, style, suitability and copyright, among other things. In this workshop, I will present case studies of some successful online self-publishing projects I have overseen, and provide clear, practical guidance, based on my experiences, for anyone who wants to take the plunge and self-publish their materials online.
