Yearbook Software in a Digital Age

This is the digital age. Technology has been given custody of everything from our shopping lists to our bank accounts. Itís only about time that our high school memories join the fray. For the digital generation, a digital yearbook is inevitable in reliving those precious memories of high school, middle school, sports team, or even community group.

For some people, however, a traditional physical, hard-copy yearbook still holds its appeal. Even the idea of going digital may even seem intimidating for most. So why go digital?

ē For the most obvious reason, digital yearbooks can include videos and audio that otherwise cannot be included in the printed yearbook. Include video footage of events and activities, as well as, hundreds, even thousands, of photos. Because of economic constraints, traditional yearbooks contain only few images and the rest end up being discarded.

ē The economic climate has required schools and groups to go digital as the high cost of printing a school yearbook has become daunting. Digital yearbooks are cheaper to produce. The cost of distributing a yearbook on CD or DVD is definitely lower than printing on paper.

ē A digital yearbook can be a great fundraising idea for schools. Create and sell digital yearbooks on CD or DVD-ROM. The money raised could offset the high cost of printing the yearbook.

There could be hundreds of reasons to go digital and hundreds of reason not to. However, with a digital yearbook software, schools, clubs and groups will find it easy to go digital. SpryBook, a digital yearbook software (, provides students a fully interactive yearbook experience with built in side bar navigation, search facility, background music and even an auto play button that will automatically play the digital yearbook in sequence. There are also other ways to create digital yearbooks. This includes using existing software like Microsoft Word or Powerpoint, using sophisticated expensive authoring software or going online. To check out these options and more, see this article on ways of creating an interactive digital yearbook:

Even if youíre more traditional, and donít want to see the traditional yearbook being replaced by digital technology, going digital is still an option. A DVD or CD-ROM yearbook can be included as a supplement, distributed with the hard-copy so students can keep a traditional copy in their bookshelf, as well as a digital copy on their computers. Note, however, that some digital yearbooks are mere compilation of photos and are shown in a long sequence in DVD. For a truly digital yearbook that offers interactivity, a digital yearbook software like SpryBook is required.

To go digital or not to go digital? That is not the question. The question really is when will the digital world catch up with the yearbook. Isnít it about time the world of yearbook became up-to-date with the digital age? Well, for now, the preference is yours. Going digital will bring you into an exciting new world of interactivity and multimedia. With the growing popularity of e-books as a form of media, why hold the yearbook back? Digital yearbooks offer interactivity which brings a whole new aspect to the experience of reading them. Readers will now be able to recall their memories in vivid and exciting new ways.
