Layout, Optimize and Publish Your Own Professional iBook with Apple iBooks Author

Layout, Optimize and Publish Your Own Professional iBook with Apple iBooks Author | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Now anyone can create stunning iBooks textbooks, cookbooks, history books, picture books, and more for the Apple iPad.

 

From Mashable:

"Apple announced a new iBooks Author App on Thursday that makes creating an Apple ebook a drag-and-drop process.

 

Using the app, which was announced at the same time as a new textbook experience for iPad, users can drag a Word file into a book creation space.

 

The app automatically determines the best way to lay out the book and creates appropriate sections and headers.

 

Users can then drag and resize images within the text and add definitions, photo galleries, movies Keynote presentations and 3D objects.


Users can preview their books on their iPads or publish them directly to the iBook store."

 

N.B.: iBooks Author is designed to be used with the iPad and published in the iBookstore. After the user is satisfied with the proof, the book can be published using iTunes Producer directly into the iBookstore.


*Users can also export PDF copies of the book if they want to distribute something in a more traditional way (or need non-interactive galleys).

How will the iPad change education?

How will the iPad change education? | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

Tablets will change education this year and in the future because they align neatly with the goals and purposes of education in a digital age. Specifically, these devices will succeed because they are about productivity, convergence, mobility, community and availability.
