The resources and applications about ebook have been changing people’s way of reading due to the popularization of ebook readers. It also has significantly changed the traditional rules and concepts of publication. Therefore, an important issue we have to face consequentially is how to create qualified digital publications for readers. In fact, there are a lot of excellent e-learning contents have been produced and stored in repositories or management systems. But unlike the convenience of enjoying ebooks with ebook readers, these excellent learning contents have much more complicated design issues and have to be put on specific learning management systems (LMS) due to the conformance of learning strategies and management requirements. Moreover, many excellent learning contents and courses are produced by the teachers who spent a lot of time and energy. They also have the expectation of converting these learning contents to their own private publications. As the result, we propose a file converter which is able to convert the SCORM compliant courses into EPUB publications. The system consist of four modules; Presentation Transforming Module, Metadata Transforming Module, Sequencing and Navigation Transforming Module and Packaging Transforming Module. We look forward to seeing these excellent SCORM learning contents can be wildly distributed and enjoyed with the EPUB format and publications.
