Why do we deal with the development process?
The reason is not for us to go deeply in the medieval codex digitalisation process. :-) In the first unit we described digitalisation and the need to choose an approach for the digital content organisation. However once it is chosen, it is not by far enough to start the work. Why? Because:
- Our content in HTML format becomes a product to a bigger audience, usually to our learners. So we should take care of the required tasks in product design and development as much as we can of the;
- HTML format is rich and interactive, so we have to think of all those interactions that will surround our static manuscript content. In other words we have to „programme” our manuscripts.
There is therefore a massive planning phase to align the development and production of this converting process. This unit is about the details of „conversion” process.
