Three Mac apps to help you self publish your book | Ebooks, interactive iBooks & iBooks Author | Scoop.it
I'm looking to self-publish my writing, so I took a look at a bunch of different Mac apps that can create ebooks. The best I found were Apple's Pages, Adobe Indesign, and Scrivener. Here's a look the pros and cons of each program.

Apple iBooks 3.0 to Launch Soon – What New Features Can We Expect? ibooks 3.0 – Good E-Reader - ebook Reader and Digital Publishing News

Apple iBooks 3.0 to Launch Soon – What New Features Can We Expect? ibooks 3.0 – Good E-Reader - ebook Reader and Digital Publishing News | Ebooks, interactive iBooks & iBooks Author | Scoop.it

Rumors are swirling the internet on what exactly we will see in this new build. I would expect expanded abilities to take notes, annotations, highlights as a couple of new features to be enhanced. Apple may also take elements out of Amazon’s playbook and give support for music and audiobooks via iTunes within iBooks.

 

The only thing we know for sure is that iBooks 3.0 will have EPUB 3 support.

Kinderboekenweek: groep 3 heeft een e-book gemaakt!

Kinderboekenweek: groep 3 heeft een e-book gemaakt! | Ebooks, interactive iBooks & iBooks Author | Scoop.it

Het is Kinderboekenweek! Daarom hebben we met groep 3a een echt e-book gemaakt, naar het boek 'De grote reis' van Max Velthuijs. Dit boek sluit mooi aan bij het thema van dit jaar: Hallo Wereld! Het boek gaat over een dienaar van de koning, die een brief achterna reist, omdat hij bang is dat de brief kwijtraakt. Het is een zware reis, waarbij de dienaar allerlei moeilijkheden moet overwinnen.

 

Groep 3a heeft zelf allerlei avonturen voor de dienaar bedacht, die hij tijdens deze reis zou kunnen meemaken. De kinderen hebben in tweetallen bedacht wat of wie de dienaar onderweg tegen zou kunnen komen. Ze hebben er tekeningen bij gemaakt en samen hebben we de teksten voor bij de tekeningen geschreven.

 

Het resultaat is een prachtig e-book, een combinatie van het bestaande boek en het werk van de kinderen. Op de iPad is het boek bovendien te beluisteren, van elke pagina is de tekst ingesproken!
