Make-your-own-ebooks platform: Aerbook Maker

Make-your-own-ebooks platform: Aerbook Maker | i pads and school libraries : Suggested by Wendie Sittenfield, M.I.S.  Library Media Specialist | Scoop.it

But what about librarians and other educators who want to go beyond a read-only experience and enable their students to easily create, share—and even market—their very own slick, tablet-ready graphical ebooks and mobile apps? Enter Aerbook Maker.
