Tell us about yourself and the nature of your work.
I am an Education Coordinator at Ohio Energy Project. As a coordinator in a small nonprofit organization, you will find me planning and creating educational material centered on energy-related subjects, teaching our programs to both teachers and students as well as doing the administrative work to keep these programs organized on our website. My goal is to empower Ohio’s next generation of leaders and innovators with a comprehensive understanding of energy and the skills necessary to thrive in the field.
What challenges did you face prior to using Kotobee?
We were looking for ways to host our curriculum in a digital format that was interactive for the users, professional-looking, and relevant for our student and teacher clientele. Not having the expertise in creating and formatting this digital content, Kotobee helped us make our vision of creating an easily accessible and engaging digital curriculum come to life.
What potential solutions did you explore which didn't work out?
After trying out various ebook creation software, we found Kotobee to be the most user-friendly of them all. The support team was also always eager to collaborate and provide answers to all of our questions in a timely manner.
“We love how Kotobee took our PDF ebooks and made them interactive, aesthetically pleasing, and age-appropriate for our younger audience.”
