Abstract

The MC squared project (http://www.mc2-project.eu) aims to design and develop a new genre of authorable e-book, which the project calls the ‗c-book‘ (c for creative), extending e-book technologies to include diverse interactive components, learning analytics and collective design. As a research lens, literature from communities of interest (CoI) is used. Evaluation of c-book showed that most c-books had a mix of open and closed elements, sequenced in an intentional way to facilitate learning. Creativity according to the CoI‘s definition is not a simple case of creating open or closed tasks but a carefully-designed sequence of 'pages' and tasks that together potentially induce creativity.
