Our English dept is in the process of building an online Graphic Novels course. They have asked for assistance/ideas on getting these books housed in their Canvas course.
The books come in either .CBR or .CBZ file types
There are many mobile app options for reading/viewing these files. And, of course, the websites where you purchase & download the content from (Comixology, in this instance) has built in online viewers.
I'm reaching out to see if anyone has helped to develop a course such as this or used any of these file types.
I'm thinking I need to determine how to either:
- embed the viewer from the Comixology site (not sure how this would work with account log-ins)
- convert the .CBR to a .PDF (less attractive scenario due to dimished UX (so I'm told))
- find some third-party tool (open source?) where we could upload our .CBR files and post/embed them from there
- any other workable option.
Any guidance on this would be much appreciated!
