Worksheets in iBook | ipadders.eu | Ebooks, interactive iBooks & iBooks Author | Scoop.it

On a typical paper worksheets a question would normally look something like this: What are the different figurative language techniques used in in this text.”
______________________________________________________________
The lines on the paper gives students the space to write their answers. Unfortunately, iBooks Author only allows you to put in multiple choice questions. The iBookWidgets app does allow you to put in text questions but they’re not always aesthetically pleasing and can be a time consuming process.
An easier option is to write the question in your iBook and let students type their answers in a note like below.
An added bonus is that all notes are automatically saved to the “My Notes” part of the iBook.
