"Brown and Green have spent a quarter of a century creating and sharing digital resources for teaching and learning. In this book, they do an outstanding job discussing a variety of ‘new media’ (digitally produced pieces that combines images, sound, and/or interactivity) and ‘open educational resources.’ They provide practical advice on how to produce media, including ways for using, creating, editing, distributing, and embedding them. This book will benefit any instructor looking to integrate technology into their teaching."

—Florence Martin, Associate Professor in Instructional Systems Technology, Department of Educational Leadership, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, USA

"Brown and Green have done it again. Their conversational tone sets the reader at ease as they effectively break down concepts many consider difficult. This book is a valuable resource for both the novice and experienced educator who wants to create and share open educational resources."
