Simple and easy way to create an e-book. I would love to get some feedback from someone who created a book with Book Creator.
James Easterling's curator insight, April 22, 2013 1:50 PM
This would be a great tool for someone who's looking to put their content into an e-book. It's a simple and easy way to create and share on.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, April 22, 2013 3:59 PM

Goodproduct, but if we are going to ask faculty to turn their study guides into ebooks they will need time and often they will need support to get the full benefit of the multimedia available.
