The traditional publishing industry is dealing with the revolution of self-publishing, e-books, and a myriad of online content providers. These changes have brought both challenges and opportunities for publishers as they negotiate ways to provide new forms of content and alternate revenue streams. Joan O’Neil, executive vice president of Knowledge and Learning at Wiley Publishing, is right in the middle of the maelstrom of change.
In this course, O’Neil talks about strategies that Wiley is using to stay relevant and be a player in both the book and the online content world. She discusses how to make it in the world of publishing; current issues in the publishing industry; self-publishing as an impetus for growth; future of publishing in the area of professional development and education; skills gap in the publishing industry; positive impact of social media on publishing; the growth of digital publishing; and the use of technological tools in today’s world of publishing.
