TUTORIAL Here I’ve created a very short tutorial on ISSUU, the free digital publishing platform. Hope you find it useful! Let’s get started… Click to access ISSUU



ISSUU is a digital publishing platform. This site allows you upload files and turn them into an online magazine, book or catalogue. Although it is mainly used for commercial purposes, students may make profit from this tool since it is easy to use, free and gives you the possibility to include hyperlinks in your publication!

The first thing you have to know about ISSUU is that it is a site where you upload a previously made file. That means that you have to work on your publication offline on softwares such as Word or PowerPoint. Consequently, you have to bear in mind some conditions of the file you are going to upload: ◦ Maximum file size: 500 page / 100 mb ◦ Supported formats: PDF, Word (DOC), Powerpoint (PPT), Open Office (ODS, ODP), WordPerfect (WPD), Rich Text Format (RTF), Star Office (SXI, SXW).
