    Interactive textbook options

    JamesJButler

      Hello,

       

       

      I'm new to creating digital books, so I apologize if this is the wrong place to be asking this.  I’m interested in developing electronic textbooks for physics courses that I teach.  My main concerns are that the final product be platform independent, the underlying code be written in something that won’t become obsolete in the foreseeable future (I assume something like HTML5/Javascript), and that I can incorporate animations that my students can interact with (something like clicking on an image in the document that becomes an interactive animation of a physics problem that the students can adjust parameters on and see the results…perhaps the animation is of two runners on a track and the students can adjust the initial velocity and acceleration of each runner and then watch the race with tools to measure the time of each runner, etc.).  Would Adobe InDesign be the appropriate tool for this?  If not, any suggestions?

       

       

      Thanks!
