First we struggled, why release a paper book when NauticEd is the World’s Most Advanced Sailing Education and Sailing Certification company? How can you view a video or animation on paper? The answer became simple once we put on our thinking hats – use an App so that it can scan a QR Code inside the book where we want to explain a concept better with a multimedia element. So now here is the book – available on createspace.com.
(Note the image shows a hardback book – it is really a softback book but professionally bound by createspace (an Amazon company) and available as a print on demand book).

Here is how a hybrid Paper/eBook works: The book is like any other paper book with images and text. BUT … with any QR code Reader App or our new (FREE) NauticEd App (coming in a few days) the paper book comes alive in certain places. In the NauticEd App, we built in a QR Scan code function. Or you can use any QR Reader App on any device. As an example, throughout the book you will see QR codes like this to the right. Scan it now with any QR Code reader or the NauticEd App.
To get a QR Reader – For Android go here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.scan.android.client For iOS go here after Feb 15th 2015: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nauticed-sailing/id502471101?mt=8 Note – wait for the new App release otherwise use this one: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/qr-reader-for-iphone/id368494609?mt=8
When you scan any QR code the book element comes alive through your mobile device. Otherwise – the book is a stand alone excellent explanation of the Rules of the Nautical road and is a good and quick easy read. But with the addition of scanning the QR Codes, you’re going to light up with all the fun of a hybrid Paper/eBook.
