A case study is presented, aimed at making audiobooks interactive in the context of English teaching in Danish high-school. Social interaction was chosen as key feature to allow high-school students and teachers to annotate audiobooks, then share and comment on the annotations. This new work is supported by unpublished data from two other studies, which provided insights on the potential of interactive audiobooks. All case-studies were conducted in a user-centred fashion and build on social semiotics, in which interactive audiobooks are seen as providing new ways to receive, interpret and share literary texts within the social context of the English language class. Local primary and secondary schools were involved in ethnographic user studies and qualitative evaluations with semi-functioning prototypes. The findings and technical solutions explored in the three studies are the basis for design guidelines aiming at making audiobooks interactive and better integrated in learning contexts.
