Reviewing Apple’s iBooks Author

Reviewing Apple’s iBooks Author | The many ways authors are using Apple's iBooks Author and iBooks2 | Scoop.it

Many have pointed out how an electronic version of a textbook is not really that big a deal in terms of the evolution of education. They are, in my view, right to a degree: iBooks do exploit and, to a certain extent, perpetuate the one-to-many, sage-at-the front model of education, but the fact that we are exploring new ways of creating and delivering content that can be created and shared by anyone (teachers or learners) with the right tools has to be, in my view, a step in the right direction.
