Kotobee – The ultimate free epublishing tool | PeacheyPublications.com | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
I tried a number of tools but just wasn’t satisfied until I found Kotobee Author. Like iBooks Author it is free to download, but it will run on most platforms so you don’t have to be a Mac owner to use it, but what’s really great about Kotobee is its ability to export to so many different formats and platforms.
