I am a huge fan of iBooks Author! It is a fantastic tool for teachers looking to create content for their students. I’ve used it to make customized textbooks for a fifth grade Social Studies unit on Canada and Science unit on Sustainability. iBooks Author can also be used to share student work to turn them into published authors. It’s the same tool I used to create my eBooks to share tips with teachers.
Apple has just launched a fantastic overview of iBooks Author with instructions that show just how easy it is to use. This page explains how you can add different media and widgets to each page of your book. Try it out yourself and then ask your students to become content creators!
